Are you passionate about supporting young survivors of sexual violence? Are you an inspiring woman with experience of working with young people and a qualified counsellor? Join a brilliant team that supports young survivors of sexual violence and delivers prevention work in schools.
We are recruiting 1 full-time or 2 part-time trained counsellors to provide a therapeutic counselling service for young women and girls aged 14-18 in the SEE Project (Support, Empower, Educate). We are looking for someone who has a youth friendly and flexible approach and is interested in building on our knowledge of the experiences of young people and getting their voice heard. The SEE project is funded by the Big Lottery Women and Girls Initiative and provides holistic support to young women and girls who have experienced sexual violence. The project works collaboratively with local partner agencies including schools, expanding the local provision to young women and girls across Oxfordshire who have been affected by sexual violence at some point in their lives. All candidates must be willing to work face to face from the start.
The SEE Project is part of Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre. The work will be face to face at our base in East Oxford.
Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre (OSARCC) has been supporting and empowering survivors of sexual violence in Oxfordshire since 1979. We provide independent, free and confidential services in an environment where survivors can receive trauma-informed, specialist support from our experienced and friendly team of staff and volunteers.
