Job Opportunity in London for Open Dialogue UK

From the Open Dialogue UK website:

We are now looking for more administrative support, primarily to help us meet our objective of opening a centre in London for training and practice in 2016. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the development of a centre which will in time offer training and therapeutic work in a variety of approaches, including Open Dialogue, Hearing Voices, psychotherapeutic work for people experiencing psychosis, and Intentional Peer Support. As well as this we will be running events in the evenings at the centre including debates/dialogues, film screenings, performance arts, and other creative/social gatherings, related to therapeutic practice, but also wider social/political issues. Our hope is that the centre will also provide vocational opportunities on a voluntary and paid basis for people with lived experience of mental distress/extreme states who are interested in contributing to the development of the centre and learning new skills, and we welcome interest from people with such experience for this administrative role.

Initially we are looking to involve someone with administrative skills on a temporary basis, with a view to this becoming a permanent position once the centre opens. There is flexibility in terms of the basis on which the work would initially be undertaken (employed, self-employed) as well as the hours involved (full-time/part-time). Amongst the administrative skills required are the ability to use Microsoft Office, edit content on our (WordPress website), monitor email accounts, research issues related to the development of the centre, etc. Training will be given where necessary.

If you are interested in this administrative role, please complete the form on this page on our website by 14th February 2016, or contact us if you have any questions.”
