Further information:

MindSpace Stamford is a community hub which welcomes everyone to come and take part in activities and learning that promote mental well-being aligned to the NHS 5 ways to well-being.

We are looking to recruit a resourceful, motivated, proactive individual to become People and Operations Lead to help us develop new strategic partnerships, deliver community well-being support as effectively as possible and to help us ensure the smooth running and sustainability of our charity. It is essential that the post-holder is a passionate advocate of mental well-being and community and can ally themselves to the values and ethos of the charity.

Reporting to the Chair of Trustees at MindSpace Stamford, the People and Operations Lead will be the leading member of the team who will have line management responsibility of our Host Administrator and Night Light Coordinators. Previous experience of managing a team is desirable and we are particularly looking for someone who takes a person-centred and strengths-based approach to leadership and team building.

Whilst the primary focus of this role will be toward supporting existing team members and working with our partners, it is likely that through events and by being present at our community hub premises, the post holder will get to work with many of our members and our volunteers. People attend MindSpace to maintain their positive mental well-being and when they are facing challenging times and so every member of our team must have the confidence to listen and support people sensitively. Full training, including accredited mental health first aid training will be provided.

The post-holder will be given a high degree of autonomy and trusted to make operational decisions that enable the smooth running of the charity on behalf of trustees. Being confident in making decisions and working on their own initiative are essential requirements of this role. The Board of Trustees will support and mentor the new position holder to aid them in achieving their full potential within the role.
