Glasgow (Hybrid Working)
The Mental Health Foundation (MHF) has a vision of a world with good mental health for all. Their focus is on preventing mental health problems and improving people's wellbeing. They do this through research, creating new evidence-based solutions, making practical support available and advocating for change. MHF is now recruiting for two Project Managers to support with the implementation of the Foundation’s Covid Respond Programme (CRP), a £2m UK-wide investment that aims to support and protect the mental health of at-risk communities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Project Managers will sit in either the adult team, or the children families and young people team, working as part of MHF’s new Covid Respond Programme, specifically across Scotland. The Project Managers will work closely with the Programme Managers in their respective teams to implement new and innovative areas of work that focus on the prevention of mental health problems. The Project Managers will work in close partnership with other organisations and charities, utilising capacity building models to ensure practical mental health support to people whose experience of inequalities before and during the pandemic has left them most in need of support. The Project Managers will ensure all projects have agreed outcomes, clear workplans and that reporting mechanisms are fulfilled, and will support innovation in the development of sustainable and scaleable models of practice.
To apply for this role, you must be a skilled Project Manager, with demonstrable experience of working on projects from their implementation stages. You must have exceptional communication skills, with the ability to convey concepts to a wide range of audiences, and build relationships with a variety of stakeholders, including beneficiaries. You must have a proven track record of engaging with people who experience inequalities and amplifying less heard voices through co-production models.
