Key aspects of the role:

Recruitment & Onboarding There are new therapists signing their interest in becoming a Support Room therapist every day.


Currently, we only capture their contact details and their specialism at a very high level.

You will need to keep these therapists engaged ensuring we convert more then 80% of those who sign up with interest.


In addition to onboarding, your role will also involve assisting us in signing up as many new therapists as possible over the next 6-month period.


We hope to have 2000 therapists formally onboarded by the end of the year. Our recruitment strategy will be to hire from all English-speaking countries; therefore, you will need to educate yourself on the legal requirements as per the location where the therapist is based.


You will have access to multiple digital channels to ensure this number is achieved, to job portals and other online channels as per your research.
