Locum Counsellors or CBT Therapists  

We are seeking to appoint additional locum counsellors or CBT Therapists to join our busy, multi-disciplinary University Counselling Service. 

If you would like to apply to work with us, you must have completed a post-graduate level counselling qualification. We also require applicants to have some experience of working with young people, ideally in Higher Education.

Accreditation as a counsellor/psychotherapist with the following professional bodies: BACP, UKCP, BABCP, BCP or as a clinical or counselling psychologist with BPS is essential.  

Applicants should be available to work a minimum of 2 days per week. 

We are working remotely, so you will need to be able to work in a secure environment keeping all communications private and confidential.

The UCS values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. However, as men and ethnic minorities are currently under-represented in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from male and ethnic minority applicants.  All appointments will be made on merit.

We pay a fixed daily rate and provide fortnightly supervision. As a locum counsellor or CBT therapist, you are also welcome to join any in-house CPD events that may be taking place when you are working with us.

Please make sure that your CV includes all previous employment and outlines clearly whether your role was part-time or full-time and the proportion of clinical hours when appropriate. 

Can you also please include a certificate or letter from your professional body, or a link directly to your page on their website, demonstrating your accreditation.
