Well Being Senior Counselling Practitioner

Are you a counsellor seeking a new challenge? Are you looking to develop your leadership skills or take the next step in your career? 

Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice is looking for a talented counsellor to develop bereavement hubs across Birmingham, to support individuals through grief. This exciting new role will give you the opportunity to shape and develop this community-based service, which is open to anybody regardless of any connection to the Hospice.

You’ll be establishing meeting places in four local constituencies; Selly Oak, Edgbaston, Hall Green and Northfield.  You’ll also be responsible for recruiting, educating and managing volunteers to facilitate the hubs, with an aim for facilitators to eventually set up and run their own groups.

As well as developing bereavement hubs in Birmingham, the role will also entail running a telephone bereavement support line in partnership with the current bereavement counsellor.

As the successful candidate, you will be: an excellent communicator; able to prioritise tasks; have exemplary attention to detail; well organised; and self-motivating. Experience of working collaboratively with GP surgeries, community groups and other charities is desirable.

This is an exciting time to join the Birmingham St Mary’s team, as we share our expertise with local communities to support people not known to the Hospice.

If this sounds like the role for you, then please apply today.
