Solace is an innovative, exciting, grassroots charity working across London. Our purpose is to bring to an end the harm done through domestic and sexual violence to all survivors, particularly women and children. Our work is holistic and empowering, working alongside survivors to achieve independent lives free from abuse.
About the Service
Solace’s North London Rape Crisis offers a range of services to women and girls aged 13 + who are experiencing or have experienced any form of sexual violence in their lives. We offer a safe and non-judgmental space to women who are living, working, or studying across London boroughs of Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Camden, Islington, Haringey, Barnet, and Enfield.
Our expert team provides helpline support, advocacy (ISVA) support including specialised ISVA for women with complex needs. We also provide one-to-one and group counselling to survivors as well as short-term one-to-one counselling support to survivors’ family and friends. It is an inclusive service which takes a holistic approach to supporting recovery and independence; and supports all ages, disabilities, sexualities, gender identities including non-binary, ethnicities, and religions.
The core service is open 9.00am to 5.00pm. However, appointments can be arranged outside of these hours if required and may offer flexibility around working hours.
About the Role
This is a great opportunity for career progression if you are either already a qualified counsellor wishing to develop leadership skills while maintaining your registration and CPD requirements; or if you have insight into the counselling role and are interested in developing in this area.
This is a perfect time to join Solace while we are refreshing our focus on workforce development. As well as experiencing what it is like to be part of a supportive, highly effective team, you will also acquire valuable development to add to your portfolio of skills and career progression.
The Counselling Services Manager will work in partnership with the other NLRC services to provide effective leadership and management of specialist sexual violence counselling services. This role will also manage the Safeguarding Hub and provide line management to the Counselling Services Co-ordinator.
We understand that you may not meet all the knowledge, experience and skills mentioned but your interpersonal skills, passion to make a difference and ability to learn quickly and work collaboratively, will be equally important.

It is important that those who work for Solace are warm, empathetic, and diligent individuals with a strong work ethic who are happy to join our services and help us to make a difference to the lives of those that we support.
The ideal candidate will have experience or exposure with supporting women affected by sexual violence who have multiple disadvantages and complex needs. Whether you are applying for the qualified or unqualified role, successful applicants will have a clinical background and some experience of supporting in a trauma informed way. You may already have management experience and understand the complexity of trauma on women that have experienced sexual violence.
Solace Women’s Aid values diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applicants from black minority and ethnic communities.
Solace is a Disability Confident employer. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any additional support to apply for this role.
