Job Title: Project Manager - Mental health programme
Working For: Media Trust
Location: London (currently remote due to Covid-19)
Salary: £30,000-32,000 p.a. based on experience (pro-rata if part-time)
Do you want to play a leading part in an exciting new project to build the communications, digital and storytelling capability of mental health charities in the UK, empowering them to drive behaviour and policy change to tackle the looming increase in mental health issues?
This new project will work with mental health charities to help them develop and implement clear and compelling communications that inspires action, builds movements and drives behaviour and policy change. We know that communications is vastly underfunded and understaffed across the charity sector, notably in small mental health organisations. This is why we are launching this new year long programme combining in-depth media and communications training, and mentoring for a cohort of mental health charities, while developing free resources to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of the wider mental health sector in the UK. Part of the programme will also involve media interview training for individuals with lived experience of mental health problems to share their story in the media.
We are looking for a dynamic, proactive and organised individual with a demonstrable track record of successful project management, delivery and completion. Reporting to the Director of Charity Services, the successful candidate will be responsible for the coordination and delivery of this exciting new project. Applicants should have proven experience of successful project management in the charity sector including administering and monitoring project timelines and budgets, and a good track record of working with, managing, and getting the best out of partners and project participants. We are looking for a strategic thinker and detailed project manager with strong skills in media and communications in particular digital media and campaigns, as well as in designing and delivering training and events.
