This is an exciting time for Changes Therapy service. Growing demand for therapy has resulted in longer wait times. Additional funding now allows us to expand our provision and support people to access therapy more quickly. We anticipate appointing several part time Counsellors and welcome applications from qualified therapists passionate about mental health, wellbeing, and community, with an appetite for teamwork. The successful candidate will provide 1-1 counselling within a short-term model, carry out counselling consultations, write referrals, reports and undertake administrative tasks relating to client work. They will play an active role as a member of the Changes team, contributing ideas and input to support the development of Changes wider services.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic candidate seeking a challenge to join our busy, friendly and supportive team. The postholder will lead on the development and delivery of Changes Groups, Courses, and Volunteer Project. The role includes line management of a small team of staff and will include sourcing and liaising with freelance workers. The postholder will ensure effective monitoring and evaluation of activities and lead on new developments based on identified needs.

The role will include some facilitation of groups/courses as is the case for all staff. Community engagement and partnership building will be a key aspect of this role.

The appointment of a Project Development Coordinator comes at a time of development for our team and the postholder will be a part of this exciting change as we venture into some new avenues. We anticipate the role will evolve over time. Volunteer Coordination, including recruitment and support and supervision of volunteers will initially be a key focus, though as the role progresses, we aim to secure funding to appoint a Volunteer Coordinator.
