We are determined
We support, encourage and empower our team to do their best work.
We are passionate about the work we do, but make a commitment to nurturing and protecting our mental health and supporting our colleagues to do the same.
Why join Mental Health at Work?
As an organization working within the mental health space you would expect us to put employee wellbeing at the core of our proposition and we have a Mental Health at Work Charter which guides our principles.
We offer a flexible approach to working hours and outside commitments and appointments that may occur during the day, within the requirements of your role.
We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) and therefore have a need to run a self sustaining business so that we can continue to deliver our mission to as many people as possible. We will periodically benchmark our salaries and benefits to ensure we are market comparative. However, we pride ourselves on offering more than just financial remuneration.
What we offer
We offer employees 25 days holiday (Pro-rated FTE), which they are encouraged to take, plus bank holidays.
In addition to this our office closure during Christmas and New Year allows employees a well earned time out to rest, recuperate and spend time with family before starting the new year afresh. This can amount to up to 2 weeks depending on where Christmas and New Year fall and is not deducted from annual leave entitlements.
Employees are auto-enrolled into the contributory pension scheme with Aviva. Employer’s contributions are 3% (employee contributions 5%).
All employees have access to our Employee Assistance Programme through Health Assured for the employee and immediate family, which offers a host of valuable support on various topics via the website or App.
Social and Collective
In a remote first team, we know how important it is to develop connections with our colleagues. We encourage ideas from within the team and offer autonomy to set these up, including Book Club, Film Club, and themed Quizzes/Events.
We provide the opportunity for regular check ins through our weekly team meetings and one to ones with line managers. We also like to spend time together for a team cuppa and chat, where we don’t focus on work.
We are committed to bringing the whole team together at least twice a year for business updates and a social event in addition to frequent team meetings.
MHaW are committed to making a difference to working lives through changing attitudes and behaviours around mental health. We know that to achieve this, we need diversity in thought, to value differences across our team and to respect and support each other.
We actively encourage submissions from a diverse range of applicants. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, marital status or disability status.
