The Fire Fighters Charity exists to support serving and retired fire and rescue service personnel and their families in supporting their mental health, physical health and social needs. We recognise that no two people are alike and work in partnership with our beneficiaries to help them achieve their potential.
The Fire Fighters Charity works within a recovery model, our approach is person-centred and needs-led and support is focused on enabling and empowering our beneficiaries to live meaningful lives, despite any challenges that they may face.
We are currently seeking an enthusiastic and motivated Lead Practitioner for Psychological Therapies to join our dynamic multi-professional team based at Harcombe House, our purpose-built centre in Chudleigh, Devon.
Solution focused and with excellent communication skills, you will lead a small team of practitioners and work in partnership with our beneficiaries to understand their needs and goals and develop holistic support to help them reach their potential. Support may be provided through face to face interventions, delivery of group workshops, telephone and web-based interactions, with teams working collaboratively and proactively to ensure our services are integrated, effective and, above all, make a genuine difference.
Registration as a mental health practitioner and registration with an appropriate professional body are essential, as are strong leadership and communication skills, a proactive attitude and an ability to lead by example.
In return, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package and a rewarding role helping the everyday heroes of the UK’s fire and rescue services.
The Charity is an Equal Opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all sections of the community. When recruiting our new team members, regardless of the role, we are looking for people who share our values to help us to achieve our strategic plan.
