Job description

About us

Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) is a national charity whose aim is to inform, create, train, and support the teaching of secular mindfulness to young people and those who care for them. Having been working in schools and other youth-related contexts for over 10 years, MiSP is widely recognised as the originator and leader in the field of mindfulness in education. Our vision is that every child and young person should have the opportunity to learn mindfulness skills to help them manage difficulty and be able to flourish. 

What we do

MiSP provides expert information, training, materials. ongoing CPD and opportunities to practice mindfulness to adults in schools. Our community of over 2,250 members regularly meets virtually for events and activities for support and networking. We create classroom materials that bring mindfulness to life for children and young people aged 3-18, so that they can learn skills for life. We also encourage and support research into mindfulness in education, including building case studies and showcasing good practice. 

This opportunity

We now have an exciting opportunity to appoint a new CEO to lead our organisation. Schools have responded with commitment and dedication to the challenge of COVID-19, which came as the sector was beginning to recognise the issues around staff retention and recruitment as well as growing mental health issues among children and young people. Now, stakeholders in the education sector increasingly recognise the value of introducing and maintaining skills that improve and maintain wellbeing for both staff and pupils.

We are seeking an energetic and highly capable individual who can lead our small but dynamic organisation through its next stage of development. This will require close collaboration with the Board of Trustees to deliver on our 2021-2023 strategic plan from which a longer-term strategy will be formed. The successful candidate will have an understanding of the education sector in the UK, be a vibrant, inclusive,  hands-on leader and excellent communicator who will enthuse and encourage our staff and our wider community. The role is diverse requiring a broad skillset and flexibility so that we can deliver and develop our services, secure income streams, raise our profile and deliver maximum impact to our beneficiaries.

We proactively encourage applications from any background and consciously embrace diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality, caste and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion, or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership. We welcome applications to this position from anyone meeting the skills criteria.   

This role  is working from home job with occasional travel to Tonbridge Kent
