Sheffield Futures is an independent charity, supporting communities and helping young people to achieve their full potential in learning, employment and life.
Sheffield Futures have an exciting opportunity for a qualified, passionate and experienced part time Mental Health Counselling Coordinator to join the leadership team of our specialist young people’s Door 43 service. This service aims to improve access to emotional, psychological, physical, and wider wellbeing interventions for all young people, particularly those from vulnerable groups that may experience barriers to accessing support, or who require support through periods of transition. We work closely with a range of partner organisations, both voluntary and statutory (including CAMHS and AMHS) to ensure that young people receive the right support at the right time, as part of this early help and prevention model.
In this position you will work alongside the Social Prescribing and Health and Wellbeing Coordinators to deliver the Youth Information and Counselling Service (YIACS) model, supporting the development pathways and processes which enable young people to access a variety of support with specific focus on emotional health and wellbeing. The Mental Health Counselling Coordinator will be responsible for the line management of our team of Mental Health Counsellors, who provide counselling support to young people aged 13-25 providing day to day support for the Counselling Team along with case supervision and the facilitation of their peer supervision. You will utilise your therapeutic knowledge to oversee the referral and allocation process, support the online platform delivery arm of YIACs in partnership with key stakeholders, and use robust evaluation systems to demonstrate impact for different funders. Other responsibilities also include planning, communication, performance management, risk analysis, monitoring and evaluation.
The ideal candidate will be qualified to degree level and hold a diploma or advanced diploma in counselling or other therapeutic training along with accreditation in BACP or other professional body. Experience of line management and a related qualification is desirable. It is essential that you have a good understanding of the support required by vulnerable young people and the issues that face young people and their families. Experience of having worked in a performance managed environment is also essential, along with an understanding of young people’s health and social care systems and pathways both locally and nationally, and knowledge of transition pathways for young people up to 25. Candidates will also be able to demonstrate their understanding of safeguarding frameworks, protocol, legal responsibilities procedures and referral processes, along with Health & Safety procedures and requirements including robust Risk Assessments.
