YMCA DownsLink Group Dialogue is a well-established BACP accredited counselling and wellbeing service for children, young people & families operating across Sussex and into Surrey. Dialogue have been offering counselling in the APC colleges across West Sussex from some years now.

This is an exciting opportunity to continue the delivery of the Dialogue counselling service to students in this alternative provision college. The college provides education for pupils who are at risk of being or have been permanently excluded from both primary and secondary mainstream schools, those who are out of school for medical reasons and those too sick to attend school.

The position comes with excellent benefits, including 27 days annual leave per annum (plus bank holidays), a company sick pay scheme, a life assurance policy of 2x your annual salary, a health and wellbeing cash plan, and a cycle to work scheme. Please download a job pack for more information about other benefits offered.

Applicants should be at least 2 years post-qualified counsellors/therapists and BACP Registered or Accredited, or registered with another recognised professional body (e.g. HPC, UKCP).

We are looking for counsellors/therapists with experience of working therapeutically with children and young people, ideally in a school setting with experience of working with challenging behaviours.

We are seeking candidates who value team working, believe in making a difference to lives of the children and young people they work with, and who can bring passion and professionalism to this post.

Please feel free to apply for one or both of these posts and indicate on your application the location(s) you are interested in. These posts can be filled by one or more counsellors/therapists.

If you are an applicant interested in this post and would like an informal discussion having read the job pack, please contact Caroline Mendis caroline.mendis@ymcadlg.org. We will not respond to agencies.
