Job description

Your leadership can show women the way to overcome abuse.

Domestic abuse has blighted women’s lives throughout history. We’ve been helping women in London recover from its effects since 1996. Our specialist counselling transforms the mental health and wellbeing of women who have suffered physical, emotional or sexual abuse, financial exploitation or coercive control, and we have assisted well over 15,000 people to date. Add your skills to our closely-knit all-female team and you can help thousands more on the road to recovery.

Taking clinical responsibility for our counselling, groupwork and other therapeutic services, you will ensure that we fully meet the needs of vulnerable women whilst complying with the BACP Ethical Framework and Person-Centred Approach. Notably, you will focus on clients with complex issues such as suicide ideation and child protection, effectively resolve any clinical complaints and represent the organisation at high-profile meetings, conferences and forums, whilst actively expanding our outreach.

At the same time, supported by the Project Manager, you will manage budgets and contracts, oversee resourcing and recruitment, and inspire and motivate your team, so we require an exceptional professional who shares our passion for transforming lives. BACP/UKCP accredited and qualified in person-centred, humanistic or integrative counselling, you will bring extensive experience of supporting clients with complex needs, including clinical supervision and project management. Needless to say, you will possess deep knowledge of domestic abuse and its effects on women and children, good relationships with appropriate statutory and voluntary agencies, and outstanding interpersonal skills – plus the determination to bring about lasting change for service users.

In return, you can expect exceptional career satisfaction plus an excellent package of benefits including:

  • Flexible working – you will work remotely initially, with the role becoming blended remote/office based when our office reopens
  • 25 days’ holiday rising to 30 after five years (pro rata for part-time working)
  • 3% pension contribution
  • Comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme
  • Cycle-to-work scheme
