Time to Change
£50,260 (including London weighting)
Full-time, fixed term contract to 31 March 2021
Based in London
We are Time to Change, an England-wide social movement which aims to end the stigma and discrimination faced by people with mental health problems. Time to Change is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, with £20m funding from the Department of Health, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund between 2016 and 2021.
Since the campaign started in 2007, there has been a step change in the way mental health is viewed and talked about in England; 4.1million people have improved attitudes, and there have been significant reductions in reported discrimination from family, friends, in employment, social life and dating.
The Head of Programme Management (Stakeholder Relations and Governance) will have joint strategic responsibility, working alongside a second Head of Programme Management (Regions and Equalities), for the performance of all projects and evaluation within the programme. They will also work closely with the Director of Time to Change, ILT members (Project Heads), and the Head of Communications to ensure the programme is delivering its activity plan and progressing towards its targets.
The Head of Programme Management has a key role in deputising for the TTC Director and providing cover in their absence, as well as delivering presentations and speeches about the work of the campaign.
This role is employed within Mind, but will work closely with Time to Change staff based at both Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, as well as liaising with other staff across both partner charities.
Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interests of mental health service users, women, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender and people of all ages are reflected in all activities. You will be expected to contribute to this aim.
