About Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest

We are a multi-disciplinary provider of specialist mental health services and a part of the Mind Federation.

We promote both recovery from ill health for people with recurrent and enduring mental health difficulties and early intervention for those at risk of developing mental health issues, or who struggle with common mental health conditions.

We currently support around 5,000 people a year through a variety of services focusing on psychological, social, economic and workplace wellbeing, and support minoritised communities.

Working for us

We are looking for staff who share our values:

  • Connected: Creating a compassionate and supportive community.
  • Fair:  We strive for equity- no-one’s needs should go unmet.
  • Brave: We walk with people, offering help by doing what works – proven or new.

Working with Mind CHWF means you’ll be part of a dedicated, passionate, and professional workforce who cares about the work they do and make a real difference to the lives of the people in the City of London, Hackney and Waltham Forest.

We are committed to actively becoming anti-racist in everything we do. This is a critical priority for Mind CHWF. We embrace diversity and understand that being an inclusive organisation that recognises different perspectives, will enable us to provide excellent services.

We are committed to ensuring all our employees are treated fairly and equitably at work and promoting equity in physical and mental health for all.

Those with lived experience of Mental Health are encouraged to apply.

Our people are our greatest asset – whether they’re our staff or service users. That’s why we’re always trying to improve and do better.

We’re working to build a workforce that reflects the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the people we help in the community.

Application process and guidance

We know that for various reasons, not everybody who can successfully perform in a role, performs their best under traditional interview/selection procedures. We are therefore seeking ways to further breakdown barriers in our recruitment & selection process.

Shorted-listed candidates will be provided with some questions to help them prepare for the interview.
