Telephone Counsellor Required (AXA): Home -Based


Closing date: 05/03/2021

Salary: Up to £28,000 per annum (pro rata), dependent on experience

We are excited to announce a further expansion of our Telephone Counsellor team to meet the growing demand for mental health support through our Employee Assistance Programmes and Private Medical Healthcare. This role presents a unique opportunity to apply your therapy knowledge and skills in a commercial setting. Successful candidates will benefit from our in-house Continued Professional Development programme, led by our own team of psychologists.

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling (any theoretical orientation) or equivalent, as well as being a member of an accredited body, such as BACP or BABCP and working towards your accreditation. In addition, you will have experience of working with adults from age 16+ within a professional context. Ideally, this will have been gained within a corporate environment, allowing you to gain skills and knowledge around commerciality, conducting therapy assessments and making clinical recommendations for onward treatment.

As this is a home based role, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be able to work in either the Glasgow or Eastbourne office, whichever is closer to you in location, as government restrictions ease for initial induction and any subsequent training/CPD/meetings in the office.


As well as being part of a friendly team culture, you’ll also enjoy the following as part of an extensive benefits package:

  • Discretionary bonus scheme
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Option to purchase additional holdiays on top of your basic allowance
  • Private medical insurance (after 6 months)
  • Access to a variety of local and national discounts, including AXA Insurance products
