Platfform, the mental health charity, is at an unprecedented time in the history of the organisation as we have recently revealed our new name, new brand, new strategy and new vision.
With nearly 40 years’ experience supporting people facing challenges with their mental health, we are expanding and diversifying our regional projects and services and deepening our connections in communities. We are part of a growing social movement of organisations and activists who want to create change in the mental health system and beyond. Our new mission will see us build on our successful services, expand our social enterprise model – exploring opportunities to offering wellbeing support to organisations and communities, widen our reach with high profile campaigns and work to affect the change needed in the mental health system and beyond to support sustainable wellbeing for all.
We believe that vision, values, attitude and skills are vital qualities at Platfform, so if you are driven by a belief in social justice, compassionate and a flexible team player with excellent communication and organisational skills we want to hear from you.
Full range of benefits including 6.5% employer pension contribution, excellent career progression opportunities and we actively support flexible, mobile working.
This is a new role that will lead the development of a movement for systemic change toward a Person-led and strength based system for people experiencing the current social care, mental health, homelessness and criminal justice systems.
The position requires a fresh mind-set toward how people experience services, recognising how deficit based practice takes away individual power and control which can lead to the institutionalisation of people within services and systems.
Working as part of the ‘Transformation’ team within Platfform, this role will require someone to take an inspirational leadership role both internally and externally; credibly and confidently promoting person-led practice and positively disrupting/ influencing on a local, regional and national platform.
