Network Counselling and Training provides over 3,000 session of affordable counselling a year, to clients of all backgrounds, regardless of ability to pay. We offer Advanced Certificate and Diploma qualifications in listening and counselling, enabling students to become qualified counsellors. We also offer several shorter courses in listening, counselling and personal development skills.
Network is currently operating remotely as a result of social distancing restrictions, and is planning to return to our purpose built counselling and training rooms at Elm Park Filton as soon as we are able to do so safely.
Network’s ethos is Christian and person-centred, and its services are inclusive and open to all. The small team has seen Network through nearly 35 years of providing affordable counselling in Bristol, and continues to respond to the needs of the community and the day to day challenges of running a small charity during the current crisis. We rely on volunteers to provide our service, from our 40 volunteer qualified counsellors, to you!
About the role
Network’s 2019-23 Strategy recognises the need for us to improve our internal systems and processes so that we can be more effective in what we do and make better use of our time.

The role is an excellent way of bringing your technical skills to an organisation that supports mental health and wellbeing. You’ll own the role, take a lead in streamlining what we do and gaining an insight into the workings of a small charity. Each member of our small team, all of whom are part time, is vital in running Network, and you’ll be joining us in seeing the impact of your contribution up close.
We anticipate this role lasting for approximately six months.
As a volunteer with Network we can offer you discounted fees for joining our popular short courses in listening skills, counselling skills and personal development.
