The Role – Senior Organisational Psychologist (part-time)

  • PLAN: Help to shape the roadmap of content, events and innovations such as AI using your in-depth knowledge of the evidence base, and of contemporary topics of interest, to ensure we’re addressing the most important determinants of workplace mental health.
  • COLLABORATE: Team up with our Product, Content and Commercial teams to ensure that our delivery remains a truly world-class experience. This will include sharing your occupational/organisational psychology knowledge with other teams in order to upskill them. You’ll also harness the expertise within your wider professional network, bringing credible experts on board to act as consultants.
  • DEVELOP: Work with Psychologists, and other stakeholders, to create innovative, evidence-based platform content, aimed at promoting flourishing workplaces, ensuring it’s inclusive and inspiring. This will include content tailored to employees across all levels of an organisation, with a particular focus on people managers, execs and mental health champions.
  • PRESENT: Host thought-leading, workshops to inspire and empower audiences to take a proactive approach to building mentally healthy workplaces where employees can thrive.
