We are a coeducational state secondary school in Auckland, New Zealand established in 1969. The school is located on the western edge of the city, giving it a blend of suburban and rural students.

We are seeking an experienced counsellor to work two days a week with our two full-time counsellors based in our Student Support Centre.

Commencing January 2021, you would be responsible for counselling students from Y9 through to Y13, including building relationships with the students to promote emotional and mental wellbeing, self-confidence and resilience. You will work closely with our school nurses, Senco and seans.

The expected hours will be from 8am until 4pm, term time only (40 weeks per year).

Experience needed:

Our ideal applicant will have a tertiary counselling degree, NZAC membership (or working towards membership) and experience working with young children and adolescents. A teaching qualification and experience working in a NZ school would be an advantage but is not essential.
