Job Title Centre Manager, James’ Place

Salary: £28,750-34,500 pa, including London weighting

Hours of work: 37.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday

Contract Type: Permanent

Reports to: Head of James’ Place London

Location: Central London

About James’ Place
James’ Place exists to save the lives of men in suicidal crisis. We do this through a proven clinical service, delivered by trained, professional therapists in a warm, safe environment where men in suicidal crisis feel safe, valued, nurtured and respected. In 2018 we opened our first centre in Liverpool, and recently opened a new James’ Place in London.

The Role

We are seeking a dynamic and experienced administrator and manager to oversee the operational side of our London Centre. This is a pivotal role within the London Centre team. The Centre Manager will coordinate activity across the service ensuring everything is in place to deliver our intervention and welcome men into the Centre.

Job summary

The successful candidate will manage the day to day running of the James’ Place centre, under the guidance of the Head of James’ Place London. You will manage the centre environment, oversee the processing of referrals to the service and ensure men coming to James’ Place are welcomed warmly and with respect.

You will be expected to set the tone of the experience at James’ Place, provide efficient administrative support to the Head of Centre and James’ Place therapists to ensure the centre is able to run safely and effectively. This role requires someone with excellent interpersonal skills who can work hands-on in a busy and potentially challenging environment. You will be collaborative and work closely with the wider charity outside the London centre to ensure we have consistent, strong and effective systems in place. This would include other centre managers in other James’ Place centres the UK, the Senior Management Team, and potentially trustees.  You will line manage the administrative and reception staff ensuring quality is maintained and men are welcomed into the centre according to our values. You will also set up a volunteering team, focusing initially on mentoring to engage men as an extra support to our main intervention. To keep the centre running effectively you will also lead on set projects to improve our systems and the running of the clinical service.

Your management and administrative skills will be highly valued in building the backbone of James’ Place. You will be an excellent communicator with experience of welcoming and engaging vulnerable people into James’ Place. You will need to be proficient in Office 365 software such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, with the ability to manage Outlook cloud calendars, SharePoint, a CRM database (we use one based on Microsoft Dynamics) and a shared inbox. The ability to engage and share in the James’ Place values is a necessity.  We are looking for someone with highly developed project management skills, who can get things done and support others to do the same. The Centre Manager will often meet the men who come to James’ Place in suicidal crisis and so we will be able to demonstrate empathy and an ability to create a sense of calm while working in a sensitive and busy environment.
