SurvivorsUK is committed to continually developing our practice as an equal opportunities employer.
We strongly encourage the applications of people from structurally oppressed communities, and those who share some of the identities of our service users. In particular, our organisation will benefit from increasing the representation of BAM (Black, Asian and Mixed Heritage) people, trans* and non-binary people, and men in our staff teams.
About the role
This is an exciting and challenging new role at SurvivorsUK, that combines brief counselling and practical support, specifically to the (circa) 200 people on our waiting list for ongoing counselling. It is designed to help people cope during the 9-12 month wait for regular counselling support. The people served include those with clinical mental health diagnoses, drug and alcohol dependencies, at risk of suicide, homelessness or involved in the sex industry.
You will need to be a highly skilled counsellor/practitioner with experience of dealing with highly vulnerable clients, willing to work flexibly and on your own initiative. Importantly, you will be a compassionate person able to blend therapeutic work with practical support and care.
