Job Opportunities




Groupwork Manager (Talking Therapies)

Wimbledon Guild is a dynamic, local charity for people throughout Merton. We are dedicated to ‘supporting people from the heart of the community’. We are near the end of our first year in our three year Talking Therapies strategy and have now secured further funding to develop new emotional support groups in 2019-22. This is a great opportunity to join the Talking Therapies team as our new Groupwork Manager, which is a key role in the development and ongoing delivery of our high quality professional services.


As our new Groupwork Manager, you will have responsibility for the day to day operational running of the groups, recruiting new group workers and trainees to facilitate groups, as well as holding a caseload of groups yourself. We are open to receiving applications from group therapists with a variety of backgrounds and experience. As a department we work predominantly psychodynamically and would seek a Groupwork Manager who works within this model, ideally someone with experience and training as a clinical supervisor too.


We are looking for someone who is highly professional and conscientious in their work and will bring a high level of experience both as a therapist and as a manager. You will be setting up a new team, who will be recruited early on in role and will be working alongside a well-established team of colleagues who manage other aspects of the dept (Individual counselling, Family therapy, Counselling Training and Group Psychotherapy).
