The post holder will work with the lead outreach worker to deliver the Alternatives ‘gentle counselling’ model to service users who are accessing the BIRCH project.

The post holder will work as part of a small supportive team, delivering 1:1 counselling to birth parents in Dundee. The post holder will be expected to assess and triage clients, carry their own case load of clients, and keep client records.

The successful candidate will be part of the Alternatives Counselling Outreach team.
