Are you an organised, creative and compassionate person? Can you support our Centre Manager by ensuring that the office along with its finances run smoothly allowing the counselling team to focus on the needs of our clients?

This is an initial 3-month contract which may lead to a permanent role. The hours are 10:30am until 14:30pm on Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri.
