Fixed Term Contract – Until 1st October 2021
This is an exciting opportunity to join Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing team within the Fundraising directorate. We play a key role in achieving Mind’s mission of better mental health for all: we positively influence working policies, practices and culture to generate income to fund Mind’s charitable activities and improve people’s working lives.
This role will involve delivering commercial training and consultancy services to diverse workplace audiences. As well as delivering training yourself, this role will include sales pipeline monitoring and managing resourcing of training and consultancy services with support from one in-house consultant and via a team of external delivery partners, which include local Mind trainers and freelance/associate trainers. In addition, the role will support Product Development Managers with the ongoing development of our training and consultancy products.
We are looking for an experienced trainer/consultant with relevant qualifications (e.g. PTLLS, DTLLS, City & Guilds etc) who has significant knowledge and experience of delivering and evaluating a range of training and consultancy activities aimed at a diverse range of workplace audiences.
You will be someone who has excellent communication skills, who is able to quickly establish personal credibility with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. You will also need good knowledge of workplace wellbeing programmes and initiatives and how they can contribute to and benefit business and employees (ideally gained through working within or on behalf of mental health related organisations)
As many of us are continuing to work from home, as are our clients, we are delivering our training remotely (e.g. via Zoom, Teams) and you will ideally have experience of this. A key part of this role will be supporting us to generate unrestricted income to fund Mind’s mission, so you will ideally have experience of delivering mental health training for fee paying audiences and developing costing/pricing for commercial training and consultancy products.
Lastly, you will ideally have direct or indirect experience of mental health problems - many of our clients and their employees have shared that they find it really beneficial receiving training from experts by experience.
