We are recruiting for our telephone counselling service in London.

We are looking for qualified counsellors (minimum diploma level) who have some experience in working with vulnerable adults, have a good understanding of the Jewish community, and are aware of the issues faced by Jewish women experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
