Who we are

We are on a mission to make mental health accessible to everyone. At OpenUp, we support companies creating an open workplace in the field of mental health. Via our OpenUp platform, employees receive direct access to health checks, self-help programs, webinars, mindfulness sessions and a large team of recognized psychologists.

We believe in a world in which working on your mental health is possible for everyone. We motivate people to implement positive behavioral changes in their daily lives. Not only when life challenges us, but also before: in a preventive manner. We enable people to start a conversation with a psychologist as easily accessible as possible.

OpenUp is open 6 days a week: for planned video consults, but als of or spontaneous consults via telephone or chat. We guarantee short term availability and accessibility. This, because we believe that that minimizes the barriers people experience to work on their mental health and because we know that emotions don’t do waiting lists.

Our people make OpenUp a great place to work. We love working together and learning from each other. We value an inclusive culture where everyone can be themselves at work. One thing we all have in common: we have a positive mindset.

We are already helping over 150+ (international) companies, e.g. Rituals, HelloFresh, PwC, Picnic and Ajax Amsterdam. We are the Dutch market leader. But that’s not enough to achieve our mission: We thrive to become the number one mental healthcare partner in the whole of Europe.

That's why we are expanding and are looking for like minded talent.

Your job

Together with your client you work towards a goal in a set of sessions. In these online conversations, you are challenged to make that goal as specific as possible and to make an impact: what is the first step someone can take today?

Your work will be a mix of planned video consults, chat therapy and availability for spontaneous consults. Besides, you contribute to inspiring content, like our online programs, articles or webinars.

About you

You are a psychologist (MSc) who wants to join us in improving mental well-being in the Netherlands and all across Europe. You thrive in a dynamic and growing work environment.

  • You have 1+ years of experience as a psychologist.
  • You have knowledge of interventions based on solution-focused therapy, ACT, and/or CBT.
  • You are a self-starter, take initiative and carry responsibility.
  • You have excellent communication skills in English and Dutch.
  • You are a team player and flexible.

The relationship with clients and colleagues forms the centre of your work. You start conversations, seek for connection and act decisively. You work solution-focused and you are able to come up with advice for your clients in a short period of time. You act from a ‘practice what you preach’ perspective. This appears from your expressions and your own reflections, the application of your interventions and your attitude to your clients and colleagues. You are a team-player, but you are also able to work independently. When you find yourself with a good idea or wish to develop yourself: you reach out!

What you get

OpenUp is fast growing and you have the chance to become part of this challenging journey. Your high impact role in this early-stage scale-up offers a lot of great opportunities and chances to grow with us.

You are working in a diverse and international environment from our offices in the heart of Amsterdam. We like to have fun together with a lot of team building activities like our weekly ‘borrels’ and after work sport classes, the yearly ski-trip and our Paddle tournament. Which makes our work fun, challenging and dynamic. Next to that:

  • A contract for 32-40 hours per week (also possible: a freelance contract for 8-24 hours per week).
  • A team with a variety of expertise like work and organizational psychology, health psychology or lifestyle medicine.
  • The values we give to our clients, we also practice on ourselves and team members!
  • Room for discussion, reflection, personal development and education
  • A nice work atmosphere, with joint lunches and drinks
  • Good salary
  • To give direction to your professional development, you receive a training budget that you can use for congresses, external supervision and courses

Our motto: we learn from setbacks and celebrate successes. We build, grow, fail, learn, and get back up again. Together. When you are ready to OpenUp, join us.

Last year I joined OpenUp as a Partnership Specialist. What I love most about working for OpenUp is the dynamic and diversity; every day is different which makes the work fun and challenging. The nice bond I have with my colleagues also contributes to that a lot.
