Closing date

Maudsley Charity is an independent NHS charity focusing on improving mental health care and support, particularly for those most severely affected by mental illness.  As an independent NHS charity, we draw on our endowment to help NHS teams to enhance their work to benefit patients and build collaborative new approaches to some of the most challenging issues in mental health.

The Charity gives grants, which range from multi-million pound clinical and research initiatives intended to drive change across the UK, to smaller-scale projects directly supporting people who experience mental illness. They have a specific focus in their work on the needs and challenges of those who have experienced, or who are most at risk of experiencing mental illness.

Maudsley Charity is looking for a Programme Manager to join our recently established Programmes Team on a permanent basis.

We are an ambitious and values-driven team, currently entering a new phase of programme development where we are modelling new ways of working with award holders to develop evidence and increase impact.

The Programme Manager would be responsible for a portfolio of grants including development and oversight of one of our major new £10m thematic areas – focused on young people most at risk of mental illness but least likely to get the right care at the right time. The programme will run over 5 years and will fund a mix of funding projects and strategic collaborations including NHS improvement projects, voluntary sector initiatives and research to improve outcomes.

Maudsley Charity particularly welcomes applications from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, and we are committed to offering interviews to candidates who meet the role requirements and have lived experience of mental illness.

The successful candidate will manage and develop a portfolio of grant award holders including those carrying out our thematic focus areas on young people affected by serious mental illness; this will include setting up and maintaining appropriate communication schedules, monitoring and identifying areas for development and identifying opportunities to link work or build on learning to increase overall impact.

Closing date for applications:  Monday 4th July 2022
1st Interview date(s):                  Tuesday 12th July & Wednesday 13th July 2022
2nd Interview date(s):                Tuesday 19th July 2022
