Programme Assistant (Midlands Engine MHPP)

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.

We’re looking for a Programme Assistant to join Mind’s team working on the Midlands Engine Mental Health and Productivity Pilot (MHPP) on a fixed term basis, for 3 days a week.

The Midlands Engine Mental Health & Productivity Pilot will deliver a step change in every area across the East and West Midlands in the support offered to employers and employees to promote and deliver better mental health across all types of organisations. Alongside a number of partners across the region, we are providing an evidence informed, cost effective and sustainable resource that will support good mental health at work, reduce stigma and ultimately increase productivity.

The Programme Assistant for the MHPP programme will be responsible for providing effective administration across this exciting programme to support the Programme Manager, Senior Programme Officer and Employer Engagement Manager in ensuring that the programme is successfully implemented.

The Networks and Communities (N&C) directorate support people with mental health problems to get support and respect and to lead change in mental health services where they live. We do this by supporting local Minds to be the leading mental health organisations in their communities, measured by their reach, the quality and impact of their services and their influence and partnerships. N&C works in partnership with local Minds, community groups and people in communities to build capacity for social action and active citizenship that can improve mental health outcomes for people with mental health problems.

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)

Equality & Diversity

We value the power of diversity. We embrace the different perspectives that each of us bring. We are creating an inclusive working environment where everyone is appreciated for being authentic and bringing their whole selves to work regardless of race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience.

We are committed to becoming truly anti-racist in everything we do and ensuring that all our employees are treated fairly and equitably at work and promoting equity in physical and mental health for all.

Our strategy has becoming an anti-racist organisation right at the centre of our work. For more information please visit click on the button below.
