About the charity

In recent years, there has been a significant shift in our understanding and attitude towards mental health. The charity Mind, at the same time, has undergone a comprehensive organisational review to ensure that it can best explore the opportunities and challenges ahead. The charity has restructured the fundraising team, reviewed all services and is near the end of a strategic period that has seen huge investment and development.

This is a vital and reimagined role in their large partnership team and will help manage almost £11m of income from statutory and trust funders (70:30).

Reporting to the Head of Partnerships and managing a team of three, the role will focus on bid writing, funder development and stakeholder/funder management.
