VirtualPsychologist is a young entrepreneurial psychology-based company in Australia.
We are looking to provide alternative forms of engagement of mental health services in the Philippines to those people who would not normally engage via traditional means.
If you have counselling experience and want to make a difference in the lives of people around you and have the luxury of working from home, then please get in touch!
Job tasks and responsibilities
You will be required to deliver online customised mental health support via Text to employees and family members of the local community within the Philippines. Services are specifically delivered to vulnerable youths who prefer to engage via text.
Skills and experience
You must be a trained counsellor, youth worker, mental health nurse or psychologist.
You will require a laptop with stable internet access, effective written communication skills, good clinical skills, fast typing speed, good familiarisation with technology and a passion for changing lives, with a desire to contribute to a young organisational culture.
You will have the opportunity to work from home, or any location of your choice, and will be required to work 8-10 hour shifts. The service is a 24-hour service.
Paid training and support will be provided from a central location in Manilla for 2 days and will be scheduled for late August 2019.
The service is run from a cloud-based website so applicants will need to use their own computer and internet and must have a mobile phone for escalation reasons.
Applicants must be able to carry out 4 x 8-hour shifts as a minimum from 6am-2pm, 2pm-10pm, 10pm-6am – this could be on any day of the week.
If you are able to work as part of a 24/7 roster, then email your resume with a cover letter explaining your skills and interest in the role to Jo@vircruit.com
