Senior Editorial Officer (Young People)

We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect. We provide advice and support to empower anybody experiencing a mental health problem and we campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

Mind provides information, advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Last year, our information and support was accessed more than 14 million times – but we’re ambitious to do more, and widen our reach.

The Senior Editorial Officer (Young People) will play a key role in Mind’s efforts to develop information that supports young people and their parents/carers and also ensure that Mind’s work in this area is credible, professional and evidence-based

You will help define the scope of Mind’s information offer to young people, parents/carers and others who regularly engage with young people such as teachers. With strong interpersonal and communication skills, you will engage with internal and external stakeholders, and develop an editorial approach and appropriate tone of voice rooted in the needs of the people Mind support.

Experience of working with young people is essential, and an understanding of mental health problems – be that through personal experience, or previous job role – would be highly desirable.
