Bromley & Croydon Women’s Aid is seeking to recruit a Counselling Services Manager for our counselling service; a person who will help to lead, shape and oversee all aspects of our new in-house counselling service for survivors of domestic abuse. BCWA are looking for someone who is passionate about working to improve women and children’s lives through therapeutic services.

The Clinical lead will have experience in providing Clinical Supervision to qualified and/or Trainee Counsellors/Therapists.  You will have an acute awareness of trauma-informed practice and the delivery of trauma informed therapeutic interventions. 

As well as leading the counselling service, you will carry a clinical caseload when required and ensure that regular supervision (clinical and managerial) is undertaken within required guidelines.

You will oversee the management of all operational elements of the service and work to expand and develop this service to ensure that the pilot project is embedded as part of BCWA’s core services. 

This is an incredibly varied opportunity where no two days are alike. We’re looking for someone with experience and/or knowledge of domestic abuse, and experience of working in the charity sector would be an advantage.

BCWA is a well-established, innovative and forward-thinking local domestic abuse service, and are seeking a self-motivated, flexible and experienced individual to join our dynamic team to help us deliver excellent services to vulnerable women who have experienced domestic abuse and be committed to working in a non-discriminatory manner.

The post will require home working initially, with access to hot-desking at our offices as needed. Flexible working is encouraged at BCWA, with a mix of home and location-based working across our friendly and supportive team. We are all women with families and lives and we understand that flexibility can be crucial in supporting women in the workplace.

Employee benefits we offer:

– A friendly, flexible and values-led organisation

– Competitive salary

– 25 days of annual holiday, plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time)

– Contributory pension scheme (5%)

– Training to help you perform your role and support your professional development

– Comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme and wellbeing support

As a trauma-informed charity we take mental health and wellbeing seriously, and offer clinical supervision to our frontline team, monthly staff wellbeing sessions led by a range of health experts, and access to our comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme. This includes a personalised fitness portal, life coaching, career guidance, counselling, financial advice, nutrition advice and recipes, sessions around healthy sleep, mindfulness & much more.
