Job Description

About Unmind

Unmind is a workplace mental health platform, and we’re immensely proud of what we’ve achieved so far, taking our place in the 5% of mental health apps that are robustly evaluated through RCTs, with demonstrated efficacy.

In a nutshell, we empower employees to live more fulfilling and balanced lives, through access to trusted tools and information to measure and manage their own mental health. On top of this, we’re changing the way organisations around the world think about mental health, supporting business leaders to build data-informed wellbeing strategies that create the conditions for their employees to flourish.

A future part of our offering will be human support. We’re planning to disrupt the world of talking therapy, challenging the idea that therapy is only something to pursue when you hit crisis point, and modernising the outdated EAP approach, which we believe is inflexible and ineffective for the modern working world. Our ambitions include best-in-class ways of working for therapists, ensuring fair pay, flexible session numbers and state-of-the-art technology, and a seamless user experience, with timely access to high quality, ethical therapy that’s truly effective.

Uniting Behind Uniqueness

One of our values is “Unite Behind Uniqueness” based on the belief that humans are endlessly unique and their opportunities are equally important. In order to fulfil our mission, we want our team to represent the diversity of our users which is why we’re committed to building an inclusive workplace where we encourage everyone to bring their whole selves to work. We strive to foster a culture where everybody feels included, heard, and equal – regardless of age, disability, gender, neurodiversity, marital or parental status, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Unmind provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Unmind is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
