Senior Project Manager for Young People

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 an experienced project manager to play an influential role in developing our work with young people.

As Senior Project Manager for Young People you will be responsible for managing and driving implementation of Mind’s young people blueprint for change, the framework for the delivery of the change priority “supporting young people with a focus on trauma” that runs through Mind’s strategy.

This will involve partnering with teams across Mind on developing and delivering specific young people focussed initiatives. You will have the unique opportunity to harness your experience of working with young people and knowledge of organisations such as Mind to influence change.

Your role coordinating the implementation of the blueprint will enable Mind to deliver its strategic ambition to address the crisis in young people’s mental health experienced across England and Wales. Our ambition is to become an influential advocate for young people’s rights. We’ll fight to ensure that all young people learn about mental health and can easily access trauma informed mental health support, where and when they need it.

We’ll create more opportunities for young people to lead our work. We know that by working together with young people, we can confront this crisis.

To help us achieve our ambitions we’ve developed a bold blueprint for change that imagines the type of organisation we could be and the impact young people need us to have on the mental health system. We can’t make this happen without you.

You will help shape and coordinate the initiatives that will help us to create the change we want to see. This role will form part of an expanding young people expert team that supports the development and delivery of Mind’s strategic ambitions to support young people’s mental health, with a particular focus on trauma.

This team is situated within Mind’s Organisational Change team, which is accountable for mobilising change across our work in order to achieve our strategic ambitions and includes the organisations Project Management Office.

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 per week thereafter (or more, depending on the arrangements of your team).

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.
