ImpactEd is an award-winning social enterprise that exists to help evaluate, understand and improve impact in education. Since being founded in 2017, we have grown rapidly to support over 700 schools and more than 200,000 young people. We are now piloting and launching a new platform helping schools to improve outcomes for pupils by understanding the experience and engagement of their teachers.
An increasing body of evidence suggests that teacher engagement - how engaged colleagues are in their teaching and their experience of school - is a significant predictor of pupil outcomes as well as teachers' likelihood to remain in the profession. Understanding where and how to improve teacher engagement could therefore have a profound impact on staff retention and wellbeing, and ultimately pupil life chances. This is what the Teacher Engagement Platform (TEP) aims to achieve.
This role is an opportunity to join this new initiative at the ground floor, working as a founding Director to develop the platform, take it to scale, and act as its internal and external leader. Ultimately, this should provide the opportunity to design and shape a new product from day one while benefiting from the support of an established organisation.
Having delivered a successful pilot of TEP with a group of 40 schools, we are looking for someone to lead the future of TEP’s development – setting the strategy, developing the concept, product and brand, and acting as its internal and external leader.
This is a senior leadership role within the organisation, reporting to our Managing Director and a project Board including our Chair. As the platform grows, the responsibilities of the role will change over time. You will be able to make that transition, having both the strategic vision to set the direction and business plan for TEP and the hands-on approach needed to support a product in the early stages of its development.
We are open to a range of backgrounds. The most important criteria are a deep understanding of the education sector, strategic leadership experience and strengths in partnership and network building. Experience and interest in product development would also be a real asset.
You would be joining a dynamic social enterprise with opportunities for significant development in line with organisational growth. We are committed to:
Agile and flexible working: responsive management, flexible hours, work from home options
Personal excellence: we invest significantly in professional development, including an external mentor for every staff member, an individual CPD budget, and formal and informal training and support
Mental health and wellbeing: access to health and wellbeing advice and free therapist support

Together we’ll be working to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.
Will you join us?
People with mental health problems are more like to end up in poverty. And people who live in poverty are more likely to have mental health problems. As part of Mind’s new strategy, launched in April 2021, we have set out a significant ambition to break the link between mental health and poverty.
Our vision is an integrated system of support that recognises how mental health is a lived reality for people in poverty, and works hard to be relevant for people experiencing poverty. To reach this vision, we will use our current financial poverty-focused work as a springboard to create initiatives that will be embedded throughout Mind’s ‘business as usual’ operations.
The aim of this exciting role is to work with the Poverty Programme Manager to continue the development and delivery of mental health programmes with our partners Trussell Trust and Citizen’s Advice. We will work with these partners (and others) to share learning and generate new ideas to help address the most complex issues and injustices in the mental health system.
In this role, you will be based within our Networks and Communities Directorate, in the Communities Unit. The Networks and Communities (N&C) Directorate at Mind has a crucial role in enabling Mind to reach more people, increase our influence and affect long-lasting change in all communities across England and Wales. The Communities Unit was established in 2021; we ensure Mind’s work remains focused on centring the experiences of the people that we work to serve.
An important part of the unit’s work is to reach out beyond the Mind network to engage with communities who have not historically seen Mind’s work as relevant to them, you will work closely with colleagues to ensure the success of this work. Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interests of mental health service users, women, black and minority ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, and people of all ages are reflected in all its activities. All staff are expected to contribute to this aim.
