- Reports to: Chief Practice Officer/Sanctus Head Supervisor
- Contract: Contractor, part-time
- Location: Remote (home-based, virtual only)
- Salary: £720 per day
- Time commitment: Up to 4 days per month (1.5 days minimum starting commitment)
Sanctus was founded in 2016 and over the last 5 years we have focused entirely on improving mental health in the workplace working with the fastest growing startups in the UK like Onfido and Carwow, big brands like Red Bull and Just Eat and huge enterprise partners like Boston Consulting Group and Ashfield Healthcare.
In that time, we have developed our own model of mental health coaching which combines a relational approach with a structure which makes mental health support accessible in the workplace. Our ambition is to build a business which can work with 1000s of people whilst still supporting the special connection between person and person.
One of our earliest ambitions was to lead the way in recognising supervision as best practice in coaching work. We believe that by supporting our coaches, we support our clients and we hold Reflective Practice as one of our three pillars of ethical practice. Our Sanctus supervision is fundamental to modelling a relational, holistic, contextual and process-based approach which helps our clients to live more fulfilling lives.
Our business is currently growing, we are bringing in new coaches, and we are now looking for another supervisor to provide supervision to our experienced and growing cohort.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for a supervisor who will join our current Supervisor, Kate Glenholmes, in providing excellent supervision to Sanctus coaches meeting with individuals across a wide spectrum of mental health presentations.
We are looking for someone who connects personally and professionally with our mission to make mental health support more accessible. We also feel it’s as important that you resonate with our beliefs and approach about mental health and work in a way that reflects and supports our kind of humanistic approach.
We are looking for someone who is excited by the possibility of being creative with supervision. We hope to work with you into the future to find ways of ensuring that the quality of supervision and our coaching remains unwavering as Sanctus grows.
