We are supporting Basingstoke Counselling Service, who were founded in 1985 by a small group of local therapists wanting to provide mental health support to the local community. Since then, the Service has flourished to become a busy, vibrant counselling and training centre dedicated to improving the emotional wellbeing of the community.

Identifying appropriate subject areas and recruiting speakers that will attract both internal and external delegates will be imperative to the success of the role and these decisions will be made in conjunction with other key team members.
Alongside this, the postholder will run events to promote counselling and training services, to coincide with local events, and key dates in the mental health calendar. Responsibility for marketing, brand and communications, developing a social media strategy and being the prime custodian of the BCS website is expected. The role will be supported by a committed administrative team, comprising one full-time and two part-time administrators and an Office Manager.
