Job description

We are looking for an exceptional leader with a passion for working alongside people with mental health issues to lead Mosaic Clubhouse, an established award winning mental health charity providing services to the residents of inner city South London, into its next phase.

Mosaic Clubhouse has been funded by Lambeth Council and NHS Lambeth since it was founded in 1994. We aim to promote positive mental health for those aged 16 and over, living with severe and often enduring mental health problems, enabling individuals to regain the confidence and skills necessary to lead productive and satisfying lives.

The two central tenets of Mosaic are the concept of membership of the Clubhouse Community and working side by side with staff to co-deliver clubhouse activities as a key means of regaining confidence and self-esteem. Members are involved in every aspect of community life: they work on reception, run our café, maintain our gardens, deliver our administration and finance activities and deliver workshops for the benefit of their peers. Members are the key stakeholders within our organisation and participate in all our work, decision-making and governance opportunities.

After six successful years, during which Mosaic has gone from strength to strength, our current Chief Executive is retiring and we are looking to appoint an individual who is passionate and dynamic with experience of working in mental health settings, to work alongside our members.

This is a rewarding and challenging role, with huge opportunities to make a real difference to the lives of individuals living in Lambeth and beyond, through the application and promotion of the international Clubhouse model. Over the short-to-medium term the new CEO will:

– Manage the transition to the new Borough-wide alliance contract for mental health services

– Renew Mosaic Clubhouse’s international accreditation

– Continue to develop and diversify our income streams

– Ensure members’ needs and aspirations remain at the centre of all we do

The right candidate will be passionate about the Clubhouse vision of involving members in every aspect of your work and thrive on leading in a collaborative way. A strategic thinker, you will also be comfortable being hands-on. You will be an excellent communicator, adept at building sustainable partnerships, and have a proven track record of working with commissioners and funders.  Your background will include working closely with people with complex mental health issues and you will have a deep understanding and experience of managing clinical risk in a mental health setting.
