Vacancies at the Maudsley Charity

What impact will I help to make?

We support patients and carers, clinical care teams and scientists who are working towards improving mental health. We fund ideas, big and small, that drive improvement and support people who experience mental illness.

When someone becomes ill, the effect on them, their friends and family can be life-changing.

It can happen to any of us. The consequences of mental ill health are far-reaching – affecting employment, relationships, finances and even life expectancy.

Maudsley Charity exists to fund the people and projects striving to improve care, support recovery and prevent mental illness.

What do our people enjoy about working here?

Being a very small team, I did not expect the level of commitment to investing in DEI in terms of recruitment and team training and also in general the emphasis on continuous development and training.


Diversity, Equality and Inclusion

Maudsley Charity is committed to changing and tackling racial inequality. As an organisation we are working to achieve positive change together with those who share our values and commitment.

Addressing issues of equality, discrimination and diversity as they relate to mental health is fundamental to our mission. We will use our influence to help shine a spotlight on equality and diversity and to embed these principals into both our organisation, and the projects and people we fund through our grants programme.

We are working with our staff and Trustees, our partner organisations, and the communities we serve to better understand the difference we can make.

Removing bias from the hiring process

We’re serious about wanting to build a diverse team and we’ve looked at each stage of the recruitment process to remove biases. We’ll value you and what you’ll bring to the role, and we’ll do all we can so it’s effortless to be yourself at work.

We run a blind recruitment process and non-graduates are welcome.

We are committed to offering interviews to candidates who meet the role requirements and have lived experience of mental illness or a disability.

Ask us anything sessions

For each vacancy we run an anonymous Ask us anything sessions, where you won’t see or hear other candidates. We give a quick run-down of the role, the team, the organisation and our culture and the recruitment process and then it is over to you. You really can ask us anything – about the role, the process, our work, culture, team, flexible working policy…. or just listen to what others ask.
