About the role

This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable administration experience in a dynamic national charity, supporting the day to day work of Mind’s planning, performance and governance. The role offers the opportunity to gain experience of strategic planning, insights and decision-making within a leading mental health charity. 

The Governance and Performance team sits within Strategy and Insight. Strategy and Insight is made up of the Head of Strategic Planning & Governance, a Research and Evaluation team, a Compliance team, and the Governance and Performance team, which you will directly support. All the different teams will be available to ensure your volunteering opportunity is a mutually valued and pleasant one.

The volunteer will provide day to day administrative support to the team.

We welcome interest from those individuals who have direct or indirect experience of a mental health problem, who will gain support and understanding, with the opportunity to build confidence, skills and experience from Mind.

The role is flexible and we are ideally looking for someone who can volunteer from our London office for up to 2 days (14 hours) per week. Although the post is unpaid, we can offer reimbursement of reasonable travel up to £15.00 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.

Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interest of mental health services users, men, women, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men and bisexuals and people of all ages are reflected in all its activities. The volunteer is expected to contribute to this aim.

How to apply

Send CV and cover letter to volunteering@mind.org.uk. Please state your availability (weekly hours/days and possible start date) in your cover letter.
