Executive Director of Corporate Resources

Rethink Mental Illness
Up to £100,000 depending on experience

At Rethink Mental Illness, our goal is to make sure everyone affected by severe mental illness has a good quality of life. We campaign for change on a local and national level and provide expert advice, information and training, and over 200 services across England. We are a growing organisation with an ambitious strategy and work in partnership with other charities to help influence change with government and key decision makers to help transform the world for people with severe mental illness and strengthen the whole mental health community.


As our new Executive Director of Corporate Resources, you will, as part of our small executive leadership team, play an essential role in creating a clear and compelling strategic narrative so that our people understand and collectively embrace our ambitions to grow further. We need a strategic leader with experience of leading through change in a similarly complex organisation to help foster and create a One Culture organisation to help deliver on our vision and strategy. You will lead all of our corporate resource functions, including People and Finance. You do not need to an accountant, but you will be a natural problem solver who is able to roll their sleeves up when needed and is confident in managing a finance team. 

We’re looking for an open, collaborative and confident leader with strong interpersonal skills and the ability to influence across the organisation as it continues to evolve, and who will be able to inspire and guide a multidisciplinary team to go from good to great. Importantly we are looking for someone who shares our strong commitment to be an anti-racist organisation and is aligned to our values and our principles around Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). We want our employees, volunteers and Trustees to represent the broad diversity of the communities of which we are a part, and for our influencing and advocacy work to reflect the diverse needs of all those living with severe mental illness. 

You do not need to have worked in mental health services to join us, but you will bring a desire to help transform the world for people with severe mental illness.  If you are interested in joining us on our journey, we would love to hear from you.
