Work with us!

Mayday Trust is a dynamic force working to create systems change to build a person-led, transitional and strengths-based approach to supporting people through tough times. We’re both walking alongside people facing challenging circumstances, influencing sector change and developing partnerships with like-minded organisations to create a network of system changers. It’s an exciting time to join us. We’re blazing a trail and we are looking for brave, vibrant, enthusiastic people to join us to deliver our plan for the future.  

It’s important that our team are passionate about Mayday’s Mission and Values. Find out more about our background and values here

Equity and inclusion 

Mayday Trust believes that the failing systems around tough times are damaging to everyone, but that damage is not experienced in the same way. Whether it is due to race, gender, disability, sexuality or how individuals may identify, broken systems make life harder for anyone who doesn’t conform to what is seen as ‘standard’. We recognise that to truly create a radical and impactful organisation we need a staff team that is representative of all of the communities we look to support and we are committed to supporting and encouraging applications from groups underrepresented in the charitable sector. 

We support the Disability Confident scheme and we are open to making reasonable adjustments to our application and interview process to ensure that everyone who is interested in our opportunities can apply.  Please speak to us if you would like to discuss assistance that would make your journey to joining us more accessible. 

We are keen to keep learning and improving our approach to equity, diversity and inclusion. Find out more about our approach here.

What do our team say about working here? 

“I’m most proud of creating a safe non-judgmental space where people feel comfortable sharing what they’ve been through and their hopes and dreams moving forward.” Mel 

“I am proud every time a person trusts me a little more.” Meg 

“One thing I want to celebrate is the human spirit. We get to mirror back someone’s courage, joy and previous strides so that they can be reminded of how amazing and strong they are. And then we get to witness and celebrate their achievements.” Jhoana 

“I have never worked in such a person-led, human environment before. I know that sounds silly – we are all humans – but usually processes and policies turn you into employee numbers and outputs. Not here. I am celebrated for being my whole self and that is so freeing.”  Ciara 

“What I love about being part of Mayday is that I can bring my whole self to work, being brave is essential/not optional, everyone wants to learn and unlearn by truly listening, failure is part of the process.” Catherine
