We want to be a great employer for all our staff, regardless of their background or characteristics. We recognise that not everyone is the same and that different people will require different support to fulfil their potential. One thing we can do to work towards that goal is to ensure that our staff team is representative of the diverse communities across Lancashire. We particularly encourage applications from people in communities that face mental health inequalities and from anyone with experience of living with a mental health condition.
Lancashire Mind has a dedicated workplace wellbeing programme to ensure staff are supported with their own wellbeing, which includes an Employee Assistance Programme and wellbeing activities throughout the year. We also offer a workplace pension scheme; 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays and 3 additional days between Christmas and New Year (pro rata for part-time staff); paid time off to manage unexpected life events (e.g. illness of a dependent); a sick pay scheme; regular supervision; and a commitment to supporting learning and development opportunities.
Above all, we are a friendly and supportive place to work. Our current team members will tell you that the biggest plus is joining a team who are passionate, dedicated and committed to making a difference to the lives of others.
Some of our job roles require significant travel across the county of Lancashire; we reimburse all travel expenses for journeys made during your working day, other than your commute to and from work. Some roles also require occasional evening and weekend work - any hours worked above your usual weekly hours can be taken back at a later date.
Lancashire Mind work with children and adults who may be at risk of abuse, therefore we follow safer recruitment practice and every role within the organisation is subject to a DBS check (level of check is dependent on the nature of the role) and receipt of two satisfactory references.
