Saffron Sheffield is committed to equal opportunities policies and practices and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. We particularly encourage applications from black, Asian and ethnic minority candidates. Due to being a single sex-service provision, a female for this role is a determining and genuine occupational requirement in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, Part 1, Schedule 9.


A vacancy has arisen within our therapy team for an experienced female trauma psychotherapist/counsellor. 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 therapy and well-being 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 signposted 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 therapy services in Sheffield for over 30 years.  


You will be joining our small, friendly and supportive team of staff, volunteers and an active board.  Our therapy service is led by our experienced Head of Clinical Service, Ingrid Harris, with support from our clinical trustee Ahmina Akhtar.  Ahmina is a registered social worker and has extensive experience working with trauma. She is currently Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Social Work England.


We are a reflective, learning organisation and offer opportunities for continuing professional development to all team members.  Our caseloads are often demanding but present an opportunity to consolidate and build upon a strong basis of expertise in psychological trauma work.


Alongside your clinical skills, you’ll be a clear communicator, have great organisational skills and be confident in using ICT to make administrative and communications tasks easier.  You’ll care passionately about supporting women who have experienced abuse and trauma.

Please submit your application and equality and diversity monitoring forms to no later than 5pm on Friday 15 July.
