This person will sit as part of the wider quality and compliance function and you will work in a small but growing team responsible for ensuring regulatory compliance and embedding a culture of learning and continuous improvement. The aim is to ensure Mind can demonstrate the highest possible standards to beneficiaries, supporters, regulators, donors and other stakeholders.


The overall purpose of this role is to maintain oversight of all of Mind's contractual relationships, ensuring that they operate within high standards with well managed and minimal risk. You will provide specialist advice to staff across the organisation on a variety of areas of law, with a focus on contract management, due diligence, risk management and negotiation. Delivering training to upskill managers, leading on internal audits and conducting high level analysis are also important in this role.
