Forces in Mind Trust – Head of Policy (London)


Salary: This is a senior appointment in the organisation and appropriate remuneration will be negotiated with the preferred candidate.

Forces in Mind Trust is now entering its most important stage as we firmly establish ourselves as an evidence-based transformational charity that will significantly improve the way in which ex-Service personnel and their families transition into, and sustain, fulfilled civilian lives. Founded in 2011 by the Big Lottery Fund, we are an endowed trust with a 20 year spend out of £35 million. A team of nine, we are led by a supportive and strategic thinking Board.

The Trust is now looking to make a far greater impact with its grant funding. This will require more proactive commissioning; better exploitation of the evidence we generate to change policy and service provision; more robust evaluation; and a more effective and continuous process for understanding the policy environment.

We are looking for a Head of Policy who will be at the core of the Trust’s work to enact this change. We are seeking an exceptional individual who is comfortable operating at the policy level, and whose analytical skills are complemented by a keen ability to articulate concepts and an innate understanding of how to influence a wide range of stakeholders. You will have the capacity to work within a small team with an eye for detail. All of these skills will be matched by strategic thinking, and complemented by highly effective communication and inter-personal skills. Above all, you will be motivated by our vision to help former Service personnel and their families live fulfilled civilian lives. If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you.
