Join our team

Advert CEO.png

Could you be our CEO?


At Designs in Mind we are finding ways to live life and challenge mental health stigma. We create high quality ambitious and experimental art & design work and support each other to make independent ambition a reality.


Everyone joins the studio as a member of the team, through strong referral pathways with community mental health teams, GP’s and Redwoods Hospital.


Through our retail brand- JOLT we have a shop on the high street. This sells the work we make, enables members to take on new roles and responsibilities, makes stories, lives and mental health visible and enables local people to take the first step in to mental health support without fear, judgement or stigma.

We are looking for a CEO to inspire the culture internally and externally so Designs in Mind can thrive. 

We are looking for someone who can bring people together to share a vision, someone to creatively and ambitiously lead the team, someone to identify and develop diverse income streams and someone to be an ambassador of Designs in Mind.

We meet approximately every two months and meetings take place on either a Tuesday or a Thursday at 1.00pm.
