Service users are referred by their GP and can receive up to 12 counselling sessions to support the mental health issues they are experiencing.

Would you like to come and work for an organisation which, in the words of one service user, “saves lives”?

We are currently looking for a part-time manager (c. 25 hours/ week) to co-ordinate the entire end-to-end service proposition of NEECS from managing people to securing funding.

Someone with a passion for improving mental health in the local community

A track record of securing external funding

An inclusive leadership approach

Communication skills which will enable NEECS to take advantage of modern social media

What you will get in return

An entirely flexible approach to the role - want to work from home, a coffee shop, do some hours in the evening? Fine with us.

A salary of £ 31542- £ 36129 per annum (pro-rata)

27 holidays a year (pro rata)
