The Cambridge University Counselling Service is seeking to recruit multiple Counsellors, Psychotherapists or Cognitive Behavioural Therapists, on a full time or part time basis to undertake individual and group counselling with students for this large, busy and well-respected multi-disciplinary Counselling Service.

This is an opportunity to join our highly experienced multi-disciplinary team of counsellors, CBT therapists, mental health advisors and sexual assault and harassment advisor. The successful candidates will have a post-graduate level counselling qualification. Current accreditation as a counsellor/psychotherapist with BACP, UKCP, BABCP, BCP or as a clinical or counselling psychologist with BPS and HCPC registration is essential, as well as relevant experience of counselling and group-work in a similar organisational setting - please remember to upload your accreditation/registration certificate when applying.

If applying for a part-time position, please confirm your preference for the number of days (3 or 4, including Wednesdays).

We are unable to provide a date as to when we will return to the Student Service building so please apply on the basis that you will be working from your home until further notice.
