About Working at Burton and District Mind

Our recent employee survey has reassured us of what we thought to be true. Burton and District Mind are a fantastic employer, committed to the cause of supporting with mental health problems.

"Great team with lots of energy and commitment to our objectives"

"Staff are giving something back, be fulfilled in their own life and earn an income from doing something seriously rewarding"

"Salary is competitive, very positive and supportive work environment, amazing colleagues and managers, good internal communication"

Everyone supports each other and recognises that many staff have or have had mental health struggles themselves.

"The team recognise the importance and the quality of all aspects of the service and the valuing of every member of the team. I feel there is always the opportunity to be able to communicate with about work to gain guidance if needed."

"The flexibility for remote working. Investment in people. The garden, who else has a fish pond at work!"

We are making a difference to people's lives. We touch new people and more people each day. We can make real change to how people live and see the world.  Conscientious, selfless people that are kind and have similar passions. We have the amazing backing and support of Mind and the strength of the brand, but we have the control and autonomy make our own decisions to be able to suit the local community need.

Our Commitments to Equality and Diversity with regards Recruitment

We welcome applicants from all sections of the community, particularly under-represented groups and people with lived experience of mental distress. Some posts are subject to a criminal records check with the disclosure and barring service.


Burton and District Mind is committed to achieving equal opportunities in employment and the services it provides. No user of Burton and District Mind’s services, employee, trustee, volunteer or job applicant should receive less favourable treatment because of a protected characteristic. Protected characteristics are: age, sex, race, gender reassignment, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, pregnancy or maternity and civil partnership or marriage.


As an employer and provider of a service to the community, Burton and District Mind accepts the responsibility to promote equal opportunities and challenge discrimination wherever it occurs.

Burton and District Mind will ensure that job description; person specifications and application forms reflect only the requirement of the job and do not imply sex or other stereotyping.

In the interest of operating an effective Equal Opportunities Policy, Burton and District Mind will monitor certain information about job applicants. All such information will be treated as confidential and will be clearly separated from all processes concerned with the selection of staff.

UK Visa Sponsorship

We regret that due to the costs and adminstration involved, we are not able to sponsor licences to employ someone to work for us from outside the UK. All applicants interviewed will need to ensure that they are eligible to work in the UK evidenced by ID and National Insurance checks. 

Criminal Disclosure and DBS Checks

We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications and experience.

Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us.  This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of the offences.

At interview, or in a separate discussion, we ensure that an open and measured discussion takes place on the subject of any offences or other matter that might be relevant to the position.  Failure to reveal information that is directly relevant to the position sought could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment.

A DBS disclosure is only requested after a thorough risk assessment has indicated that one is both proportionate and relevant to the position concerned. For those positions where a Disclosure is required, all application forms, job adverts and recruitment briefs will contain a statement that a Disclosure will be requested in the event of the individual being offered the position.
