We have an excellent opportunity for a BACP and/or COSCA accredited Counsellor to join a successful, thriving independent girls’ school in Edinburgh and play a key role in the school’s pastoral team. We encourage a solutions-focused approach from our School Counsellor for girls aged 10-18. While we would welcome someone with previous experience of working in a school setting, along with a background in CBT, this is preferable but not essential.


Further details, including an Application Form, Job Description and Job Particulars (containing a Person Specification) are available on our website at or from the school’s HR Manager, Olivia Lovely on or by phoning 0131 311 8126.


To apply: Please submit a completed application form with a covering letter, no longer than 200 words, demonstrating prior experience of working with young people, and outlining your philosophy to counselling including how you would adapt this to both a school environment and working as part of a pastoral team.


Applications should be sent for the attention of Mrs Alex Hems, Head, to either or by post to St George’s School for Girls, Garscube Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 6BG.


St George’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, service providers and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo PVG Disclosure Scotland screening.
