Relationships Scotland–Counselling Highland (RS-CH) is based in Inverness and covers the whole of Highland. We offer relationship support for everyone in Highland over 16 experiencing relationship difficulties, whether married, single, living together, in civil partnerships, divorced or separated.
Relationships counselling is aimed at improving communication within relationships and dealing with issues around relationships. Counselling gives couples and individuals the opportunity to understand and explore the relationship issues they are facing – communication problems, mental health problems, major life events such as bereavement and divorce and other issues causing unhappiness.
Our service provides a safe, confidential space where our clients can talk and feel listened to. Our Relationship Counsellors are trained to diploma level, work to agreed professional standards and are accredited by various external bodies including Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA). Our policy is that our service should be accessible to all, irrespective of ability to pay so we do not charge a fee but ask for earnings related donations for counselling sessions.
The pandemic caused us to increase our use of online platforms to engage with clients and this has had the positive effect of making us more geographically inclusive. We now reach clients in the most remote places where communities are fragile and family relationships are crucial to their resilience. We still offer face to face sessions at our premises in Inverness for those who prefer this method.
RS-CH are delighted to be recruiting for a new Manager. This role offers a fantastic opportunity to continue to grow our organisation.
The Manager will provide leadership to the organisation, develop its organisational strategy and will have responsibility for a small admin team of 4, a counselling team of 13 and a volunteer team of 4. The Manager will work with the Board of Directors to ensure the charity’s continued long-term sustainability.
With demonstrable experience of working in a similar role, you will have a pragmatic and highly organised approach. Strong written and verbal communication skills are essential. The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of the third sector and may well have a track record in a leadership role. You will be someone who thrives in a busy position and is enthusiastic about working in the charity sector. Please see our Job Description for more details.
If you would love to use your skills, talents and experience to be part of a diverse and dynamic organisation, we would love to hear from you.
