Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest (Mind CHWF) is a multi-disciplinary provider of specialist mental health services and one the largest Minds in London. It delivers cutting edge, holistic and evidence-based services and works in co-production with service-users to develop individualised, effective support plans.

We are seeking an inspirational and experienced leader to become the next Chief Executive of Mind CHWF, shape the senior management team and lead the organisation through the next era of growth and development.

Working with an engaged and cohesive board, you will help the organisation secure a confident and creative future.  


This role requires an experienced and insightful leader who understands the context surrounding mental health services. You do not need a background in mental health, but an appreciation of the needs of diverse or vulnerable client groups will be critical. A capable, credible and confident leader and ambassador, you will have outstanding communication and interpersonal skills and will be someone who uses a motivational leadership style and emotional intelligence to build support. With a strong personal commitment to social justice, you will recognise the opportunity that this role offers to change lives within a particularly vibrant, diverse and rapidly changing part of London.
