Policy and Campaigns Assistant

About the role

We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

The Policy and Campaigns Assistant is responsible for providing administrative and assistant level support for the Policy and Campaigns team. You will be the first port of call for the team, and field enquiries from colleagues, members of the public and other organisations. Alongside this, you will carry out tasks across a range of policy issues and play a part in Mind’s external-facing campaigns to improve services and support for people with mental health problems.
You will work across a range of policy issues relating to mental health and play a part in Mind’s influencing work with the outcome of improving the lives and experiencing of people with mental health problems. To achieve this, you will work with people from all departments within Mind, with members of the public, and with people with experience of mental health problems.
Your key responsibilities will consist of providing support for the work of the wider team, ensuring people with lived experience of mental health are involved in all aspects of the team's work, by organising activities such as surveys, focus groups and interviews and developing and maintaining relevant databases and other contact management systems.

This position will initially, in line with current and potentially future guidance, be based from home. Post lockdown this role will retain some flexibility but post holders will be expected to be in the office a minimum of two days thereafter (or more, depending on the arrangements of your team)
