We are committed to supporting the development of the profession

Every year we welcome a number of trainees to join our counselling team.  Contact us to see if we are recruiting placements at this stage.  Qualified counsellors looking for opportunities should see our volunteering opportunities(click here) page.

If we are accepting applications for trainee placements, we usually run selection panels in February, May and October. For more information, please consult with the Volunteer Counsellor Recruitment Process, Clinical Procedures and Trainee Counsellor Agreement. If we are able to be specific about when slots are available, this will be provided here. If you wish to proceed, consult the documents listed above and complete our Counsellor/Coach application form which should be emailed to projects@singpostcounselling.co.uk.

Please note that we follow the Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Board’s recommendations on safe recruitment, which can make the process between application and start protracted. The process will include:

⦁ Competency Interview
⦁ Personal Interview to assess suitability for working with vulnerable young people
⦁ Satisfactory DBS check
⦁ Completion of two Clinical Supervision sessions
⦁ Two written references with follow-up phone calls
⦁ Work history continuity check
