Current vacancies for working at Kinergy.

Placement Counsellors

We are very pleased to announce that applications are now open for placement counsellors at Kinergy. 

We offer the following benefits to encourage every student counsellor to have a supported, well-rounded and enriched practice:

  • 4 clients per week
  • Paid supervision for 1.5 or 2 hours per month, depending on regulatory body of your course, with an external supervisor of your choice (approved by line manager)
  • Monthly line management
  • Individual training budget on top of mandatory CPD and in-house trainings

You will need to commit to one year’s full placement, seeing two sets of 4 clients. This typically means Aug - Aug. 

The placement is on a Tuesday, either from 9.30-2.30 or 3.00-8.15 weekly.

Monthly line management meetings will take place outside these time slots. We will try to accommodate your preference of time slot but this cannot be guaranteed. 

During the month of August, successful candidates will need to complete a number of online training courses which can be done flexibly and from home.

In-person inductions will be every Tuesday in Sept for 3-4 hours between the hours of 10.00-5.00, with a view to start seeing clients at the start of Oct. If you are unable to make these due to annual leave, unfortunately we won’t be able to accommodate your application.

Deadline 9am Tuesday 11th June 2024
