Strategic Delivery Lead for Race Equality

London London United Kingdom, E1 £44,470 - £50,051 , Contract

Posted: 3 hours ago


Fixed Term - 2 Years - 35 Hours

We have big goals over the next few years.

We're going to be fighting for mental health in a way we never have before.

Together we'll be working to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.

Will you join us?

We're looking for an experienced delivery manager to provide strategic leadership of the implementation phase of Mind's race equity initiative.

As Strategic Delivery Manager for Race Equity in Mind Initiative (REMI), you will ensure the organisation delivers against the Blueprint for Change approved by Board in 2021, with ongoing oversight and review of progress against objectives and outcomes.

Through our REMI work, we are aiming to challenge our internal practices, focusing not just on the outcomes of our race equity work, but on ensuring that the way that we do things challenges 'business as usual', creating space for truly transformative practice. This means anyone in this post will have responsibility for honouring the pain and trauma that accompanies work related to racial justice, and will be committed to working with colleagues to create trust and safe spaces that enable deep listening and reflection.

We have only just begun our journey to race equity at Mind, this role will continue to shape and evolve our plans as we continue to learn and grow in this space. This role sits within a growing Organisational Change team, working directly with the Strategic Advisor on Race Equity and other senior leaders in Mind who hold overall responsibility for REMI delivering on Mind's strategic ambition to be an antiracist organisation.

Mind is growing to meet the scale and complexity of mental health need in England and Wales. Our 2021 Strategy made a significant commitment to changing the way we work so that we can increase our sustainability, impact and continue to move closer to achieving our mission. You'll feed your expertise and experience into driving the delivery of REMI, shaping and evolving implementation plans to meet changing organisational need. With Race Equity in Mind as a high priority change initiative, we want to be bolder, braver, more agile and responsive, evolving as an organisation to reach those who need us most. Managing the implementation of REMI across Mind is essential in translating these ambitions into tangible change, both across Mind, and ultimately in how people from racialised groups access and experience mental health support.

Closing date:

Mind reserve the right to close the vacancy to applications earlier, should we receive a high volume of strong candidates - therefore we encourage an early application.

This position will initially, in line with current and potentially future guidance, be based from home. Post lockdown this role will retain some flexibility but post holders will be expected to be in the office a minimum of two days thereafter (or more, depending on the arrangements of your team).

Mind is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff, and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.
