Richmond Borough Mind

We currently have two vacancies, the Business Development Manager and Carers Support Worker

Business Development Manager 

Salary: 34,000 (pro rata)

Hours: 22.5

Richmond Borough Mind (RBMind) is a successful and forward-thinking charity helping improve the lives of thousands of people with mental health problems, and their carers. Services include Psychotherapy and Counselling, the Richmond Wellbeing Service (Step 2), recovery groups and activities, carers support, youth wellbeing sessions and information and training.

We are looking to recruit a Business Development Manager who can identify opportunities and create new partnerships to help us grow our organisation and the support we offer. This is an excellent opportunity for someone with experience of business development to shape the future of our charity and its mission to deliver better mental health for everyone. The role is a new one in our team, and we are looking for someone who can bring their own ideas and personality to it. Experience of working in mental health, or in a community organisation is desirable but not essential.

We are looking for someone who can research trusts and foundations, and contracting opportunities. You will have exceptional written skills to submit high quality funding bids, and a persuasive and organised approach to business development. We are therefore looking for someone who can demonstrate a strong performance history in previous business development roles with a track record of successful bids and/or entrepreneurial activity.

The successful candidate will be a strategic thinker who understands how to address social problems and exceed funders’ expectations in a fast changing landscape. The candidate must have an extremely good grasp of data systems and be able to create innovative business cases. You will be responsible for delivering on a clear business plan, working effectively with senior operational colleagues, including the training team, trustees and a range of external stakeholders.  

Key growth areas will be our work with the corporate sector, statutory and commissioned opportunities. The post holder will work closely with the CEO to win new and maintain existing contracts. There is an expectation that this role will meet annually agreed success and growth measures, in excess of 10% in the first year.

The post holder will also develop marketing strategy and lead digital initiatives. Supported by a team of committed volunteers, the post will also have oversight of community fundraising activities.

Carers Support Worker

Salary: 23,000 (pro rata)

Hours: 30

This is an exciting opportunity to provide crucial support for carers, families and friends within a dynamic and successful service for those supporting loved ones experiencing a mental health condition. Families and friends play a vital role in caring and often the demands of supporting a family member can impact the carer’s own wellbeing. This is where the Carers Support Worker comes in.

We are seeking someone with experience of working in community mental health or social care settings, who can demonstrate strong communication skills and empathy while maintaining good, professional boundaries. The successful candidate will be resourceful, tenacious and able to manage their caseload independently under the supervision of their manager.  Experience of being a carer yourself, or of working in an environment supporting other carers, is highly desirable for this role, however, not essential. The successful candidate will support a case work of clients as well as being involved in developing and delivering on a range of peer led support and training opportunities to meet our client’s needs.

The post is based at the Maddison Centre, Teddington.  However, we do try to meet the needs of our clients and will often travel to support individuals in settings across the borough.
