Opening Date:

Salary Range:

This is a rolling advert so applications will be reviewed and processed at regular intervals

This is a great opportunity for practitioners from a variety of professional backgrounds (counselling/ psychotherapy and Mental Health specialists) who are confident in providing ethical, high quality, accessible and appropriate short-term face to face and online therapeutic support to students. You will work within the multi-disciplinary Student Wellbeing team made up of highly qualified and experienced Counsellors and Psychological Practitioners.

We are looking for a suitably qualified practitioner who is either accredited or working towards accreditation with a recognised professional membership body/ organisation e.g. BACP, NCS, BPS, BABCP, HCPC, SWE, NMC.

You will work as part of a group of sessional Practitioners on an as-needs basis for set periods of time throughout the year (usually, but not exclusively term-time). The Student Wellbeing Service is keen to support flexible working where possible, with a range of working days, times, and patterns available. Our standard term time work usually averages at one day a week and may require some evening and weekend working. There may be more hours available depending on service demand and availability of Practitioners.

We offer competitive rates of pay, paid clinical supervision contributions, access to CPD opportunities, and you will have the opportunity to work with students and staff in a supportive team and institution.

We would like to encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to allow our staff group to reflect the community we serve and would particularly welcome applications from candidates from ethnically minoritised communities who are currently underrepresented for this role.

Please contact the recruiting manager Jozef Sen on to find out more about the role, working hours and to discuss options for working on a more flexible basis.

If you are offered this post, you will be subject to an enhanced with barred lists check by the Disclosure and Barring Service. A criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working at Sheffield Hallam University but its relevance to the duties of the post will need to be assessed before the appointment is confirmed.
