Current Opportunities

Trustees – Treasurer & Vice Chair

Manchester Mind believes that everyone deserves to be supported in their mental health needs and we have a part to play in that. Our work is guided by our values of:

Openness    |    Belonging    |    Strength    |    Collaboration

As a charity we are focussed on the needs of the people who use our services and are committed to being able to increase access to services, ensure they are relevant and properly funded. We also have a strong commitment to our staff and volunteers who play such an important role in the provision of our high quality and person-centred services.

To support us in this work, Manchester Mind are recruiting 2 new Trustees, specifically:

  • A Treasurer
  • A Vice Chair

Trustees are a vital and valued part of Manchester Mind and are important in overseeing the charity, ensuring we act legally and ethically and use our finances to benefit others. We also need to ensure we deliver on our strategic and business plans, achieve financial sustainability and manage the organisation’s performance.

As a Trustee you would be expected to attend Board meetings quarterly and take part in one of our four Sub-Committees, which meet every two/three months (as Treasurer this would involve chairing the Finance Sub-Committee).

For the Treasurer position we are looking for someone with:

  • A financial qualification and/or at least two years’ experience in a senior financial position.
  • Skills in preparing and presenting budget information and forecasts.
  • Awareness of charity finance.

For the Vice Chair position we are looking for someone with:

  • Experience in a strategic role.
  • Experience of chairing meetings.
  • Awareness of charity governance.

And for both roles – the ability to work in a collaborative way in order to generously share skills and talents.

Interested in applying?

If you’re up for a challenge, have the necessary skills, and have a few hours a month to spare, please take a look at the Trustee Pack (link below) in which you can find out more about Manchester Mind’s services, role descriptions, and details of how to apply. We’d love to hear from you!

The deadline for applications is 12noon, Friday 11th September 2020 (extended).

Interviews are likely to be conducted via Zoom.

Manchester Mind is still here for anyone who is struggling with their mental health, but now we need your support…

We have recently launched our Covid19 emergency food response appeal.

We are hoping to raise £10,000 so we can buy staple ingredients and equipment to provide over 1600 meals per week to those experiencing severe food poverty.

Every donation will help make a real difference to the most vulnerable people in Manchester.
