GOVERNANCE
 
 
Trustees 

We are looking to recruit a Trustee with good practical knowledge of IT. This area of operations has frequently been identified as one in which we are lacking expertise and are looking to recruit an experienced professional who can advise on network development and how best to use new software/applications to enhance and optimise the way we deliver services.

As a trustee your responsibilities would be to attend regular meetings of the Board and to participate in periodic strategic development and planning sessions to review and improve performance or address particular areas of concern.

We are always looking for ways  to improve the way in which we work and to make the most of the resources available to us.

COUNSELLING AND THERAPY SERVICE 
 
Counsellors and Psychotherapists

No opportunities currently - please check back for updates.

When we do have opportunities for trainee counsellors/psychotherapists, we only accept people who are on at least their second placement. This is because the clients we work with tend to have complex issues.
