About the role

This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable experience in the organisational development area of HR. The role offers experience in a dynamic national charity, supporting the day to day work of the HR team and also the opportunity to gain experience of Workplace Wellbeing, Learning and Development projects, administration and planning.

The HR team sits within the Infrastructure department and is made up of the Head of HR & Organisational Development and 10 members of staff, all of whom are available to ensure your volunteering opportunity is a mutually valued and pleasant one.

As a volunteer in the team, you will support our work related to workplace wellbeing and learning and development. There will be scope to influence your tasks depending on interests and areas in which you want to gain experience. You will receive the necessary training to carry out this role.

We welcome interest from those individuals who have direct or indirect experience of a mental health problem, who will gain support and understanding, with the opportunity to build confidence, skills and experience from Mind.

The role is flexible and we are ideally looking for someone who can volunteer from our London office for up to 3 days per week. Although the post is unpaid, we can offer reimbursement of reasonable travel up to £15.00 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.

Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interest of mental health services users, men, women, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men and bisexuals and people of all ages are reflected in all its activities. The Volunteer is expected to contribute to this aim.
