Chief Executive

  • London

Website MHFAEngland Mental Health First Aid England

Our vision is to normalise society’s attitudes and behaviours around mental health, by developing the skills we need to look after our own and others’ wellbeing. We’re on a mission to train one in ten of the population in England in Mental Health First Aid skills – because we all have mental health.  Mental health education empowers people to care for themselves and others. By reducing stigma through understanding, we hope to break down the barriers to the support that people may need to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.

We are campaigning to change the law, so that every workplace must provide Mental Health First Aid as well as physical first aid so that we can bring equality to mental and physical health in all workplaces.

Following on from the success of our founding CEO, Poppy Jaman, we are now seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive who will champion, execute and realise our vision. This is an exciting and unique opportunity for someone with gravitas, intellect and ambition.  To be successful you will have exceptional leadership skills with the ability to motivate a highly skilled and committed team. We are a business with a social purpose, therefore commercial acumen and entrepreneurial flair is a must. You will be a skilled communicator with a passion to engage and influence a wide group of business leaders, policy makers and opinion formers.  Authenticity, empathy and a commitment to raising awareness and understanding of mental health issues is a must.

This is an exciting role at a time of significant opportunities that will give challenge and reward in equal measure.  For an informal and confidential discussion, after having read the appointment brief, please contact our advising consultants Jim Banks on 07787 004 768 or David Fielding on 07810 507 235 at Attenti.
