EUFAMI - Opportunity to show your leadership skills in the field

 of Mental Health under the new 'normalised working environment'

The challenges for families affected by Mental Health problems are and will continue to increase due to the COVID-19 pandemic which is sweeping across the world, putting extra burden on such families. EUFAMIs ongoing commitment is to improve care and welfare for people affected by mental health issues. This means that EUFAMIs operational environment must play a very significant role when countries and families are tackling these extra mental health challenges. It is evident that the work environment is and will change from now on. New and innovative ways of working are being implemented. These changes will bring new and different challenges for all employers and employees and EUFAMI will be no exception.

 Right now, EUFAMI is looking for someone to lead the day to day operations at EUFAMI. This person, who should be a self-starter and innovator, will have the title of Executive Director and will lead the organisation into its next phase of development, expanding and supporting its membership, deepening its influence in the field of mental health policy and building on its reputation as the advocate of family caregivers.

Initially this position will be for a 2-year period with the opportunity, if appropriate, to be extended. Salary will be commensurate with the position and experience of the candidate. EUFAMI currently has its office in Leuven, Belgium. Further details of the position and requirements are contained on the EUFAMI website: (http://eufami.org/2020/05/19/vacancy-executive-director/) .

In the first instance, if you feel that you are the right person for this position, send your CV and application, by email to the President@eufami.org. All applications will be treated in confidence.

EUFAMI is the European Federation of Associations of Families of People with Mental Illness, a democratic, non-profit organisation with an ongoing commitment to improving care and welfare for people affected by mental ill health. It acts as ‘the voice’ of family members of people affected by severe mental illness at European level.
