We are also currently recruiting for a number of Trustee vacancies across our Mind in Greater Manchester collaborative.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals to become trustees on all five of our Boards.
Trustees are our most senior leaders. They set our strategic direction, make sure we are using our resources effectively and ensure we are having the greatest possible impact on our community. Trustees are expected to undertake duties in a manner that reflects each organisations values and ethos; and which is open, non-oppressive, respectful, led by lived experience and committed to diversity.
We are looking for dedicated, empathetic and ambitious candidates to help make our mission a reality and lead us closer towards our ultimate ambition: a society where everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.
As a trustee you will, as part of an active board:
- think strategically and creatively
- lead the organisation towards fully achieving its ambition
- scrutinise the impact we are 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
- be committed to our values
Diversity is critical for a board to be effective; enabling varied discussions, active debate and decision making, so that together we can have the greatest impact. We encourage applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems and from all ethnic, socio-economic, religious and professional and personal backgrounds. Whether you are an experienced trustee or taking your first steps into governance, if you have the commitment, values and skills, we want to hear from you.
