Join our team
We are a mental health and social change charity based in Wales.
We work with people experiencing challenges with their mental health, and with communities who want to create a greater sense of wellbeing in the places that they live. Through our projects, we work with thousands of people each year.
We believe that long-lasting wellbeing comes about by understanding how lives can be shaped by traumatic experiences, identifying people’s strengths and focussing on healing. We know we can’t ‘fix’ people, but we can walk alongside people and help where we can on their journey.
We try hard to make Platfform a great place to work, we live our values and mission in everything that we do. If you would like to join the team, take a look at our job vacancies here.
We’re looking for Trustees from all backgrounds, sectors and life experiences to join our Board of Trustees. Find out more and apply by the 12 March 2020.

To support our employees’ wellbeing, we:
- offer a flexible and mobile working approach. Employees are offered an office base for their convenience but are also encouraged to travel, work from home when necessary and meet with colleagues across the organisation. Mobile and flexible working means that those who are parents or guardians are able to work flexibly around the school run, staff are able to work around scheduled appointments and a work/life balance is more achievable.
- communicate regularly within our teams and ensure that supervision meetings are in place in order to discuss difficulties and support or offer training when needed.
- are also great advocates for walking meetings and getting outdoors as often as possible, encouraging people to cycle or walk to their offices and meetings.
- know that difficulties can arise in our any of our lives and we aim to support our employees if this happens by offering a bespoke counselling service through Breathe.
