MQ: Transforming Mental Health is the first major fund-raising charity dedicated to supporting scientific research to tackle the impact of mental illness. Our vision is to create a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated, and ultimately made preventable. With the help of our supporters and a global network of leading scientists we can make this a reality. Together we are championing, and funding, research into mental health that in the long term will change millions of lives.
Five years after launch, and with strong achievements in research and fundraising under our belt, we are now seeking a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead our organisation into its next phase of growth and development. We are seeking an outstanding individual to take on this exciting and impactful role. Working with our proven and highly proactive leadership team and reporting to the Board of Trustees, the CEO will lead development, execution and assessment of the organisation’s strategies, goals and objectives and will ensure the sustainability and success of our charity in the longer term.
The successful candidate will be an inspirational and strategic leader with the ability to build relationships across a variety of stakeholder groups. S/he will have a track record of organisational management and an understanding of the charity sector, coupled with highly developed interpersonal and communication skills, resilience and gravitas. Building on our recent ‘We Swear’ campaign, our next CEO will demonstrate strong, diverse fundraising, marketing and entrepreneurial abilities, as well as an ability to grasp key research concepts and communicate them to diverse audiences in seeking to broaden the reach of MQ. Perhaps most importantly, s/he will be deeply committed and passionate about the mission of MQ to transform the lives of everyone affected by mental illness.
