GOVERNANCE
 
Treasurer
 
We are looking to recruit someone with excellent knowledge of financial management and procedures to take on the role of Treasurer.

In addition to the statutory requirements of Trustee, the Treasurer will be required to oversee the work of the Finance Sub Committee, ensuring that regular meetings are held, that appropriate records are kept and that findings and recommendations are fed back to the Board.

The Treasurer will liaise periodically with the Finance Manager to ensure the charity is meeting its obligations in relation to financial matters and contribute to system and policy review as appropriate.

Trustee  - IT

We are looking to recruit a Trustee with good practical knowledge of IT. This area of operations has frequently been identified as one in which we are lacking expertise and are looking to recruit an experienced professional who can advise on network development and how best to use new software/applications to enhance and optimise the way we deliver services.

As a trustee your responsibilities would be to attend regular meetings of the Board and to participate in periodic strategic development and planning sessions to review and improve performance or address particular areas of concern.

We are always looking for ways  to improve the way in which we work and to make the most of the resources available to us.

If you are interested in finding out more about this role please call the office on 0114 258 4489 ext 107 or email Lindsay.doyle-price@sheffieldmind.co.ukfor further details and an application form.

COUNSELLING AND THERAPY SERVICE 
 
Counsellors and Psychotherapists

No opportunities currently - please check back for updates.

When we do have opportunities for trainee counsellors/psychotherapists, we only accept people who are on at least their second placement. This is because the clients we work with tend to have complex issues.
