People with mental health problems are three times as likely to be in problem debt: we’re here to change that. Money and Mental Health is an independent charity, committed to breaking the link between financial difficulty and mental health problems. We conduct research, develop practical policy solutions and work in partnership with both those providing services and those using them to find what really works. We have a dedicated, passionate and friendly team – and are committed to being an equal opportunities employer.

Trustee x 3
The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute is looking to expand its board of trustees. In just two years the charity has established itself as an authoritative voice; making headlines, shaping policy, changing corporate and regulator behaviour and providing thought leadership that’s changing, and in some cases even saving, lives.
It has become the go-to organisation for high quality research and practical solutions to the toxic link between financial difficulty and mental health problems. As the charity expands we’re looking for three high calibre new trustees, with a focus on people with experience in one of more of the following – the financial services industry; entrepreneurship and connections in the entrepreneurial world; and diversity or equality issues. As with all the positions we advertise, we’d welcome applicants with personal experience of mental health problems.
How to apply
If you are interested in this position please apply by email to email@example.com by midnight on 8 November. Please send:
- a CV
- a covering letter
- an equality and diversity monitoring form
These documents should set out how you meet the requirements in our role description and person specification above.
Interviews will take place in the week of the 26 November and we hope our new trustees will be able to join our board meeting on the afternoon of 10 December.
We are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process or once in post.
Money and Mental Health operates an internship scheme which lasts for six months, paid at the London Living Wage. This is advertised twice each year, in the spring and autumn. Unfortunately we are not able to consider applications for internships outside of this scheme. In the meantime, why not read Nikki’s blog about what it’s like interning at Money and Mental Health.
Money and Mental Health is committed to interviewing a broad range of candidates for vacancies and that financial difficulty should not be a barrier to interview. Where needed we can interview candidates over Skype and in some circumstances we can meet travel costs for interview, please ask for further details.
