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.

Are you an experienced at partnership working? Are you passionate about tackling stigma in relation to mental health in Wales?

We are looking for an experienced and skilled Partnership Officer to help deliver the fourth phase of the Time to Change Wales Programme, following securing three years of additional funding for the campaign.

Working under the direction of the Time to Change Wales Programme Manager you will do the following:

  • Lead on collaborative working with a variety of grassroots organisations to tackle mental health stigma.
  • Co-create bespoke content that respond to the needs, views and experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and people experiencing poverty and social deprivation, ensuring that the intersectionality between these two groups is understood.
  • Identify host organisations as primary partners to act a conveners for other specialist, grassroots organisations to create a collective to delivery activities, events and materials for and by people they represent.

You will work closely with team members in Mind Cymru and Adferiad Recovery so the ability to build good working relationships is essential. You will also need to be willing to occasionally travel as part of your role to attend off-site meetings. 

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