We have a part-time (0.6 EFT) school guidance counsellor position available for an experienced counsellor with a passion for working with young men.  St John's College in Hamilton is an all boys Catholic secondary school with a roll of 850 students, and a staff dedicated to high quality education and pastoral care. Family spirit is a core value in our College and you will be working under the guidance of an experienced Head Counsellor within a supportive pastoral team.

At St John’s College, we ‘Prepare Young Men for Life’.  Your work will involve helping our teens to make positive choices for change in their lives. You’ll bring energy to the role, and you’ll appreciate the challenge and the reward of supporting their journey through adolescence. We have a diverse student body and your ability to connect with cultural sensitivity is an important feature of the role. You will also be communicating with parents, staff and outside agencies as required.

Our ideal candidate will have a tertiary counselling degree and have experience working with adolescents. NZAC provisional or full membership is a must. A teaching qualification and experience in an NZ school would be an advantage but is not essential.

Hours are flexible and will be negotiated with the successful candidate.
