Board of Trustee’s Vacancies
GCS is a Gloucestershire-based charity that provides professional counselling and training in counselling skills to the communities of Gloucestershire. Founded in 1980, we have built a strong reputation for delivering high quality clinical work that provides vital support to people through counselling, be they individual adults, couples, children and young people or in the work place, school or GP environment. We are also a training organisation and each year train over 200 candidates from introductory through to post graduate level counselling and listening skills qualifications. In addition to this, we also offer a varied programme of continuous professional development opportunities and workshops in counselling and mental health related issues.
You will be joining us at a hugely exciting time as our new strategy is underway. Your guidance and insight will help us lead and influence the future direction of the mental health and counselling service provision across Gloucestershire.
We are looking for two Trustees who are as committed as we are about the provision of professional counselling services and the development of the mental health workforce to support such services in Gloucestershire. To enhance our Board and continue to develop our governance these individuals will have a breadth of key skills/experience including; a senior background in the health service (especially public health); child and/or adult safeguarding; communications and marketing or fundraising oversight and expertise.
We welcome all candidates with these skills and with some experience of working on mental health related issues or a genuine interest in this area. Joining a high functioning and effective board, you will bring a vital perspective and provide insights to the Chief Executive, also ensuring that the Senior Leadership Team is held to account for delivering the strategy. This is an excellent opportunity to shape the long term vision of Gloucestershire Counselling Service, at the start of the new three-year vision.
