  • Think strategically and creatively.
  • Scrutinise the impact we’re having and provide challenge where appropriate.
  • Communicate clearly and sensitively in group discussions.
  • Use independent judgement to contribute to decisions on behalf of the organisation.   
  • Represent the organisation externally and be committed to our values.
  • Receive an induction, training and have your expenses reimbursed.

We encourage applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems and from all ethnic, socio-economic, religious and professional and personal backgrounds.
