The Dove Service provides counselling and support to all those struggling to cope with the impact of bereavement, life-changing illness or significant loss.

Reporting to the CEO, the Project Manager will be responsible for leading a team of employed staff and volunteers in the delivery of a professional counselling, support and training service within our specialist field of bereavement and loss, to the highest standards of clinical excellence, and in accordance with BACP guidelines.

This will include the day to day clinical and risk management of counselling and training teams and services, (both at the the Dove Service head office and in community locations), the operational management of specified projects and contracts with a focus on volunteer engagement, participation in organisational strategy and development and performance management of all aspects of the service, including staff.

This role requires great flexibility, time management and communication skills.  The successful applicant also requires self-motivation and the ability to manage their own workload.  They must be a strong team player, with the passion to work within the third sector, and an understanding of the clinical and ethical demands of a counselling organisation.

If you are an experienced project manager and would relish the opportunity to work in a fast paced, challenging, but ultimately values based, person-centred organisation, please request an application pack.
