Working for us

At the heart of Response are the utterly amazing people we’re so proud to have working in our organisation. Every single one, in their own way and every day, makes a positive difference to the lives of people who are living with mental health illness.

Our people deserve us to be the best organisation possible and that’s why we’re relentless in ensuring that we are the best possible employer we can be. Don’t just take our word for it. We’re one of only 7% of UK organisations to have won the GOLD Standard from Investors in People twice in a row.

To do this, our dedicated HR Team are constantly championing better working lives, putting in extra support, providing the best learning and development opportunities, developing career paths and making sure we look after our people exceptionally well. Every week, you’ll see them out and about, across all areas of our work, finding out about the operations, speaking to employees and learning about how we can do things better. (Oh, and they also organise a cracking Summer Party for all staff and their families).
