Mindline Project Lead 

Mindline has been on a journey of growth this year. It began in 2010 as an out of hours helpline based in Somerset, providing a confidential listening service and a safe place to talk. Supporting anyone needing mental health and emotional support. This service was provided by a fantastic group of volunteers, who still continue to support the service today.

During the pandemic Mindline grew their offering to increase the support provided to the community. The helpline service moved from 5 days per week to 24/7 and has now secured funding until March 2022. With this increased offering we now have Supervisors in place and are now looking for a Project Lead.

The purpose of the role is to help stabilise and move the project forward in its new 24/7 form. Whilst also managing the overarching service, alongside the Supervisors and to provide support to the Operations Manager.

What are we looking for in a Project Lead?

We are looking for someone who is willing to get stuck in straight away with experience of managing people, with a qualification in Health & Social Care or Counselling.

This is a big role which may be overwhelming at times; therefore, you will need to keep a calm head and have experience in working in stressful situations, to ensure you get the best out of Supervisors, Call Handlers & Volunteers.

We ask that you have a clear understanding of working with vulnerable adults, demonstrating an empathy and understanding to mental ill health and services.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
