careers and volunteering

Working for MAP means living MAP’s values every day. It’s important to us that we demonstrate these same values to each other as well as to young people.

The young people we work with are at the centre of every decision we make. We recruit staff and volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds with different experiences to make sure we offer the best service possible.

Always improving and preparing for the future

Our staff and volunteers are given support, freedom and flexibility so they can work in a way that’s best for young people. Regular feedback and our training and development processes help us continually improve in the work we do now, prepare for work we’ll do in the future, adapt to the changing needs of young people and maintain our high level of professionalism and expertise.
It’s these things that make MAP a unique place to work.

Volunteering Opportunity

We are currently looking for counsellors who are able to volunteer their services to work within a new team offering counselling to 18 to 25 year olds from our base in Norwich. We would love to hear from those who feel passionately about working with young people.

Successful applicants will be able to use their skills and expertise to help a range of young people, and will gain experience of working in a lively, experienced and committed team of counsellors and therapists. In return, we provide monthly Professional Supervision, undertake regular Peer Supervision and offer CPD training throughout the year.

To be considered, candidates will be working towards, or will have successfully completed, a counselling qualification to a minimum of diploma level and be registered with a professional organisation that works to a professional code of ethics and standards (e.g. BACP or UKCP).

This is a rare opportunity for counsellors who share our values to contribute their ideas, skills and enthusiasm to enhance the lives of young people in Norwich and Norfolk, while continuing to develop, learn and grow.

The closing date for completed applications is 31st August 2017.
