We are looking for an innovative, dynamic and inspirational leader with exceptional business acumen.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is a vibrant, forward looking organisation, covering the areas of Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire. We are a leading, local charity working to influence and deliver responsive services to support people with mental health problems to live fulfilling and independent lives.

We have an experienced, talented and motivated team of staff and volunteers and a dedicated Board of Trustees who, together, have built a credible and trusted organisation, with an ambitious strategic plan. Our vision is a simple one: we won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.

It is essential that candidates understand mental health care and support systems and have worked at CEO or director level in a similar sized or larger organisation. The successful candidate should also:

  • share our vision and values
  • have the drive and commitment to lead us through our next phase of growth and development
  • be an engaging and strategic leader with a track record of driving change, influencing stakeholders, delivering results and inspiring others
  • be passionate about making a difference to people with mental health problems
  • have the gravitas and credibility to inspire and motivate people to follow their lead

It is an exciting time to join our charity. The profile of mental health and wellbeing has never been higher, so more people feel able to ask for help. There is a growing recognition that early intervention is key to preventing the development of mental health problems, and that people can, and do, recover from mental health problems.

If you feel passionate and excited about this opportunity and think you have what we are looking for we very much look forward to receiving your application.
