This is an exciting opportunity to use your skills, energy and experience to make a real difference to the lives of women in Sheffield who have experienced abuse and trauma.

Saffron Sheffield is a specialist service providing free psychotherapy and group activities for women in Sheffield who have experienced abuse or trauma. Our services are for women and girls aged 16 and over, who can self-refer, although the majority of our clients are referred by NHS professionals.

We are a long-established Sheffield charity with a dynamic, forward-looking approach to the development of our service. We have been providing specialist psychotherapy in Sheffield for over 29 years. We are a member of the Psychologies Board, alongside the Directors of Psychological Services in Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.  We are also an organisational member of the Survivors Trust, BACP and attendees of Sheffield Mental Health Partnership Network and our local End Violence Against Women and Girls Network. We are funded by the Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group alongside a range of charitable grant funders, and we also generate our own income via trading activity.

As Head of Clinical Service, you’ll be leading Saffron’s psychotherapy work, to ensure our practice is effective, safe and responsive to the needs of women in Sheffield. You’ll be resourcing and facilitating all those who provide counselling and therapy at Saffron, to deliver a professional service and to work to organisational policy and goals. 

You’ll be innovative and self-reliant with a resourceful attitude, but equally able to work collaboratively and consultatively.  You’ll be a clear communicator, have great organisational skills and be confident using ICT to make administrative and communications tasks easier.  

Crucially, you’ll care passionately about supporting women who have experienced abuse and trauma, and supporting Saffron to deliver the best service it can.  If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you!
