Rethink Mental Illness

We’re Rethink Mental Illness and no matter how bad things are, we can help people severely affected by mental illness to improve their lives. We’re on a mission to bring about meaningful change, through our services, groups and ground breaking campaigns.

As a leading charity provider of mental health services in England, people living with mental illness, and those who care for them, are at the heart of everything we do. They shape our expert advice, information, and around 90 services – everything from housing to community-based services. And they drive our campaigning to change the law and tackle discrimination. Together, we run over 130 local groups which provide vital peer support in the community..

Flexible Working Approach

Rethink Mental Illness encourages all staff to balance their hours and shift patterns of work with their own personal circumstances and out of work commitments. We believe that the promotion of flexible working can increase staff motivation, promote work-life balance, reduce stress and improve productivity and performance. We understand that in order to be successful in competitive tenders, flexible resource arrangements are essential; and also, because being open to requests for variation to standard working practices from staff helps maintain a committed and skilled workforce. 

We operate a hybrid working approach, which is a flexible working model which gives employees the opportunity to work from a variety of different locations. This might be from home, within an office or service or other public spaces. As part of our internal behaviours - RethinkCARES,  we strive to Evolve and are therefore proud to have adopted our hybrid (or mixed) working model. We have created four different ‘ways of working’: fixed-based , field-based, agile, and home-based. As part of our vacancies we will be clear which way of working is possible for this role. 

We encourage all people who are seeking the right work-life balance for them, to get in touch at or apply to one of our roles as we are open to work with you, to see how we can support your needs. 

Part-time: An employee who works fewer hours than a full-time worker. There is no specific number of hours that makes someone part-time, but a full-time worker will usually work 35-40 hours a week.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Agile Working: This method of work gives employees the option to work where, when and how they choose – with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints.
Full-time: A full-time employee works between 35 and 40 hours per week, usually on a permanent contract.
Reduced Hours: This is a provision given by an organisation to an employee to work for a lesser number of hours as compared to the mandatory working hours set for all employees.
Job Share: An arrangement where two people, or sometimes more, are retained on a part-time or reduced-time basis to perform a job normally fulfilled by one person working full-time.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
Hybrid Working (Office / Home): This means an employee splits their time between the workplace (usually office based) and remote working (usually at home).
Remote or Mobile Working: This is a type of working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices.
Work From Home (WFH): This is where an employee has the ability to set up their workspace at home, and manage their work without the need to go to the office.
Office Working: This refers to an employee being physically present in the workplace to fulfil their contractual responsibilities.
Career Breaks / Sabbatical: These are an extended periods of agreed absence from work. The term is often used interchangeably with "sabbatical", which is generally taken to mean a shorter period of leave of several weeks or months.
