About Us

Free Hearts Free Minds is a registered not-for-profit organization providing free psychosocial support to former Muslims (ie. ex-Muslims) who currently reside in Muslim-Majority countries. Our current team is made up of ex-Muslims with lived experience of leaving Islam, who are located all over the world. Many of our clients live in countries where they can face execution for their apostasy and/or sexuality. We are one of very few services in the world who currently provide this type of support.

 

We have recently restructured our organizational framework from a 1:1 therapy service to a group support service, allowing us to reach more clients than we ever have before. We provide our clients with 8 free group psychosocial support sessions in which they have the opportunity to build a community of like-minded individuals, while developing crucial psychosocial support skills such as stress management, safety planning and building resilience.

About the Role

We have an exciting opportunity for multiple Psychosocial Support Facilitators to join our team. In this role, you will facilitate our support sessions on Zoom with a group of 4-5 clients, using the pre-developed programme guidelines and resources. The position will require you to work collaboratively with other facilitators as we pilot our new programme structure.

 

Responsibilities will include:

  • Independently leading group psychosocial support sessions via Zoom with a group of 4-5 ex-Muslims currently residing in Muslim-majority countries

  • Managing the group dynamics and ensuring that clients abide by the boundaries, etiquette and expectations of the group

  • Utilizing the Free Hearts Free Minds session guidelines and resources to deliver the sessions

  • Following up with the Clinical Director regarding any issues pertaining to individual clients or the group as a whole

 

About You

We are looking for someone who possess a relevant education and/or social services qualification (eg. teaching/education, social work, psychology, counselling or related fields) with experience in facilitating group-based support. While it is not a requirement for Facilitators to have lived-experience in leaving a fundamentalist religion, this will be highly regarded.

Selection Criteria

  • At least 1 year of experience delivering/facilitating group-based support and/or education sessions. Graduates may be considered, depending on relevant experience

  • Access to strong internet connection

  • Ability to work both independently and within a team
