Our Gold Investors in People Award reflects our commitment to our lively, friendly teams. We empower our people to have a voice, discover new opportunities at work and learn new skills to develop their career; all whilst offering flexible working to promote a healthy work life balance.
We encourage applications from people from all backgrounds and communities and are committed to having a workforce made up of diverse skills, experiences and abilities.
We’re proud to champion the 72% of our staff and volunteers, including those in management roles, who have their own experiences of living with a mental health issue. These unique perspectives allow us to shape, deliver or campaign for great mental health services and use our own stories to support and uplift others.
Here are just some of the benefits you can expect as a Solent Mind employee:
25 days annual leave rising incrementally to 30 days per year for staff on permanent full time or part time contracts and pro-rata for part time staff.
A 3% contribution to your pension when you make a personal salary contribution of 5%.
1 month full pay and 1 month half pay for permanent staff after completing 3 months service. This increases to 2 months full pay and 2 months half pay after 12 months continuous service and then rises after 24 months continuous service to a maximum entitlement of 3 months full pay and 3 months half pay. Sick pay is pro-rata for part time staff, just like holiday entitlement.
