Dates 26 Feb 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 (30 hours)
Location The majority of this work will be home-based, but we will meet at the Wish office at 15 Old Ford Road, London, Bethnal Green, E2 9PL.

Looking for experience in organising a live music night? Want to support women's mental health?

Join us in organising our launch night of our Women's Mental Health Network. This network will work to make mental health services in hospitals, prisons and the community more gender specific, with a real drive to listen to what the women in the system need.

The launch event itself will include music, spoken word and comedy performances, focusing on how women use their voices to talk about, and deal with, their mental health.

Working alongside our social media and website consultant, you will be responsible for contacting and liaising with performers & the venue, hiring personnel, preparing and adhering to budgets, and making sure that insurance, legal, health & safety obligations are followed.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with a national charity on our biggest night of the year! As well as gaining skills and knowledge to support your CV, including experience in both the music and charity sector, this is also the opportunity to make a difference to women’s mental health.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Planning/Organising
  • Leadership/Management
