Working for Solentra
Mental well-being is a basic right for everyone, also for those who had to flee their country. We advocate and mobilise, often against the grain, to make high-quality psychological care more accessible to them. Do you want to help us? We would love to hear from you!
Why work for Solentra?
We have adopted a transcultural approach to diagnosing and treating war trauma. As this discipline is not yet taught in Belgium, we developed an internal training programme that turns you into an expert in our unique approach to transcultural trauma therapy.
Research and innovation
Clinical expertise must find its way to professionals supporting refugees. That is why we design practical training courses and innovative tools for them. Together we strive for high-quality and efficient counselling and assistance.
Initiative? Yes please! Do you enjoy looking for creative solutions and ways to make our offer more accessible to a larger group? Do you have an original idea for fundraising? Did you read about a new tool we can incorporate into our trainings? Make sure to mention it!
A diverse team
You will join a multidisciplinary team of psychologists, psychiatrists, project leaders, fundraisers, administrative collaborators and staff members. We do not think in boxes, but look at each other as human beings: committed, open and positive.

Angie Nicolas: “A school of life”
Working with people from different countries and cultures challenges me to put my thinking aside for a moment and show genuine interest in the other person’s world. It is like a school of life, which teaches me to look beyond my own values and standards.Read testimonial
Benji Jame: “You learn that your point of view is only one of thousands”
A big part of the job is empathising with someone. You have to be able to see the world through the eyes of the person sitting in front of you.Read testimonial
Moayad Abu Siyam: “It takes time to win the clients’ trust as an interpreter”
As an interpreter, you need to win the clients’ trust and make them feel safe during sessions. This takes time. This is why I find it important to work with a fixed interpreter per client as much as possible.Read testimonial
