Job Spot – Chief Executive – MIND

Please find below and attached the exciting opportunity to be Lancashire Mind's next Chief Executive. Please share far and wide.

Do you want a once in a lifetime opportunity to lead a revolution? Lancashire Mind is far more than just a mental health charity; it is a passionate movement leading the wellbeing revolution across the county.

After four successful and innovative years, the current Chief Executive has decided it is time to seek challenges elsewhere. He leaves behind an organisation that is focused, highly regarded and on a journey towards being financially sustainable. We now seek a driven and highly motivated individual to be the new Chief Executive and are particularly interested in applicants who believe they possess the fortitude to make our vision of Mental Wellbeing for All their own, and the ability to strengthen Mind’s position across the varied sectors and geographies that make up Lancashire.

Chief Executive
Hours: 35 hours per week
Salary grade: starting salary Scale PO9 point 54 (£48,603) - point 56 (£50,635), dependent on skills and experience
Responsible to: Chair of the Board of Trustees
Location: based in Chorley with extensive travel across Lancashire and nationally

Mind want an experienced Chief Executive who believes they can effectively challenge people to think differently about Mental Health and Wellbeing. A natural leader with a proven track record in maintaining and building an organisation’s external position and reputation. A partnership builder that understands explicitly how you position a small organisation to have maximum impact and influence.

Most importantly Mind want a Chief Executive who shares our organisational values of being Optimistic, Innovative, Pioneering, Revolutionary and Passionate. A Chief Executive who believes that prevention and resilience are key and that achieving mental well-being will reduce the occurrence of mental health conditions.
Lancashire Mind is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. Mind particularly encourage applications to be our Chief Executive from those with a lived experience of mental health conditions who already embrace and exude our values.
