An exciting opportunity is available within Student Welfare and Support Services for a full-time Deputy Head of Counselling. Your role will be to work together with the existing Deputy Head of Counselling to support the Head of Counselling in delivering a professional and appropriate service to students and the University. This will involve working closely with the Head of Counselling and taking responsibility for line management of some staff in the clinical team. You will take day-to-day responsibility for clinical decision making in relation to clients’ progression through the service, working closely with the administrative team. The Deputy Head of Counselling will need the experience and flexibility to be able to step in to direct delivery of any aspect of service.
You will be expected to develop and co-ordinate agreed projects in the service and across the University that would be likely to change over time, and will also hold a caseload of clinical work (including 1:1, group work, workshops and supervision). In addition, you will provide specialist information, advice and training across the collegiate University for those in welfare, pastoral and tutorial roles.
This is a multi-faceted role operating in a complex and demanding environment with an opportunity to be involved in developing a high quality clinical service, as well as overseeing day-to-day operations, with the overall goal of providing a positive experience for students at Oxford.
