The Lord Mayor’s Appeal aims to have a transformational impact on people’s lives by bringing together businesses, neighbouring communities, employees, and charities to find solutions to some of London’s most pressing societal issues. Our vision is to create A Better City for All, that is Inclusive, Healthy, Skilled and Fair, helping 1 million people thrive.
We do this by delivering programmes under our four key strategy areas; Inclusive, Healthy, Skilled and Fair, and through supporting inspirational charities who are delivering innovative solutions in these areas.
To create a Healthy City, we must end the stigma around mental health. Mental health impacts us all, with 9 out of 10 people being directly or indirectly by poor mental health each year. This has been exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Since the start of the pandemic there has been a 57% increase in anxiety.
Despite this, mental health still carries a huge stigma in society and within the workplace, with only 16% of employees feeling able to share a mental health problem with their line manager. Poor mental health in the workplace not only carries an unacceptable human cost, including loss of life, but it also carries a large financial cost to employers.
This is Me is a pioneering mental health programme that that aims to change attitudes around mental health and create healthier and more inclusive workplaces by reducing stigma, dispelling myths and improving employee wellbeing for good. We do this by providing organisations with the tools they need to:
- Raise awareness through The Green Ribbon campaign, developed in partnership with PwC
- Open up the conversation to dispel myths and challenge stereotypes through This is Me Storytelling, developed in partnership with Barclays
- Build the skills of employees to manage their mental health and support their colleagues through our Wellbeing in the Workplace online wellbeing training, developed in partnership with Samaritans and PwC.
Research has proven that speaking openly about mental health, is good for people, good for society and good for business.
We are looking for an experienced, passionate and driven Programme Manager, who is committed to mental health and wellbeing, to join our organisation to lead the delivery and growth of our Healthy Pillar Programme, This is Me.
Since 2016, over 1200 organisations have signed up to deliver This is Me in their organisation, across the UK and globally. We work with business and charity partners to deliver This is Me in London, the North West, Scotland, the West Midlands and Yorkshire, and internationally in India and Asia.
We have now developed our 2022-2024 3-year strategy for the programme, to align with the wider Programme Strategy of the Appeal, with the aim of growing the reach and impact of the programme. We have an ambitious aim to grow the reach of the programme across the UK and internationally over the next 3 years.
The Programme Manager will be responsible for delivering our strategic aims for This is Me, working collaboratively with the Head of Programmes, external business partners and charity partners to;
- Expand the reach of This is Me by diversifying the sectors we work with, prioritising increasing public sector participation
- Support SMEs to participate in This is Me and provide bespoke support on how to adapt the tools
- Support organisations to take an intersectional approach to mental health
- Develop global partnerships to support organisations to engage with This is Me globally
This is an exciting role within our growing organisation, reporting into the Head of Programmes, and will play an instrumental role in our impact as an organisation and ending the stigma around mental health globally.

About The Access Project:
The Access Project is an innovative education charity that helps bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds gain places at top universities. We support over 1,800 young people aged 14 to 18 across 35 schools.
The Access Project is expanding to become a national organisation. We work in London, the West and East Midlands, grew into West Yorkshire last year, and are expanding into the North West from September 2022. We have a team of 72 employees working in schools and in our regional offices.
A strong commitment to evidence and impact is at the heart of how we work, and we are proud that independent research shows our students achieve higher grades and are more likely to progress to top universities than similarly disadvantaged peers. We are a team passionately committed to our mission, and who support one another’s work. We are committed to improving The Access Project as a place to work for all our people and have developed a new People Strategy. We also recognise we have a way to go before we are the fully inclusive and diverse organisation we want to be, and are developing an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion strategy with support from external consultants and engagement from staff and trustees.
About the Partnerships and Communications Director role:
The Access Project has developed an innovative programme that has strong evidence that it addresses a huge social issue.

We are in the early stages of creating a donor development board – “Friends of The Access Project” - to engage new and existing individual supporters and their networks.

As part of our work to broaden our appeal, we are seeking mission-aligned patrons who will help us to reach their followers and amplify our work.
