An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, appropriately qualified and experienced counsellor to work within Student Support Services at Nottingham Trent University (NTU).
Our counsellors work alongside other specialist practitioners to deliver a high quality and responsive student–focused brief counselling service.
We require you to be a BACP accredited Counsellor, UKCP or BABCP registered Psychotherapist, or HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist and have substantial post qualification experience in providing brief counselling in an institutional setting.
You will be a team player who can work at pace, is adaptable to change, and who has a pragmatic and flexible approach to counselling. You will have excellent interpersonal, administrative and organisational skills and an ability to prioritise your own workload to meet the needs of the service. You will also contribute to the development and provision of a range of services offered by the Wellbeing team.
You will have a clear understanding of the application of counselling to the student population and, in addition to providing brief counselling, you will also provide initial assessments for the Wellbeing Team, and other duties as appropriate.

We welcome applications from counsellors from any modality who have demonstrated their ability to work in a brief framework.
