Money troubles and mental health problems are a marriage made in hell. The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute was established by Martin Lewis to tackle that toxic combination.
While over the last decade the financial services industry and others have made progress in dealing with those already in difficulty, little had been done to prevent problems in the first place. The Institute is therefore tasked with conducting high quality, rigorous, innovative research and developing practical policy solutions to tackle the relationship between the two. The Institute has made huge strides already, establishing a reputation as an independent thought leader, and the go-to agency on these issues, as if it had been around for a decade. It has become a critical friend to both the financial services industry and the health system.
The Institute has made rapid progress. It has produced seminal research and acres of column inches to enhance the debate, and crucially a tangible impact on both policy and practice, making real difference to real people. We have built a thriving community of people with personal experience of mental health problems. Their experiences and ideas underpin everything the Institute does, and we are hugely grateful to them for trusting us with their insight, and for joining us on this journey. But there is so much more to do.
We are seeking to appoint a new Director who will further develop, grow, and drive our future strategy. This is an exciting and unique opportunity for someone with gravitas, intellect and ambition. Our finances are secure which will release the new Director and their team to focus on increasing our reach and impact. To be successful you will have exceptional leadership skills with the ability to motivate a highly skilled and committed team. You will be intellectually robust and a skilled communicator able to engage a wide group of policy makers, leaders and opinion formers. An empathy with and a strong commitment to raising awareness and understanding of mental health and money problems is a must.
The salary for this role is circa £85K PA. This is an exciting role at a time of significant opportunities that will give challenge and reward in equal measure.
