St Edmund’s College offers modern facilities in a magnificent country setting in rural Hertfordshire, providing a safe and stimulating environment for young minds. St Edmund’s is England’s oldest Catholic school offering an all-round co-education for students from 3 to 18 and for families from all faiths.

We require a School Counsellor to contribute to the work of the College’s pastoral team by providing expert therapeutic intervention and support to individual students. You will manage a caseload of students who require one to one professional therapy. You will also provide targeted intervention to support students with behavioural, social, emotional, health or familial challenges to overcome them and thrive.

You will be working on a regular basis in a school in a role which gives opportunity for contact with children. As such, you will be in regulated activity and an enhanced DBS check (which includes children’s barred list information) will be required in advance of appointment.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. As with all College staff members, you will therefore be responsible for providing a safe environment in which children can learn.
