Lead School Counsellor

(24 hours per week, term time)


Roedean is an extraordinary school, sitting within the South Downs National Park and overlooking the English Channel.  It is not just the location, but our reputation for excellence in pastoral care, our strong academic focus, and our genuine belief in the importance of creativity and an all-round education, that makes Roedean unique.


We are seeking a remarkable and visionary person to lead our counselling team. You will be experienced and well qualified (BACP accredited or equivalent), but most importantly, you will have the girls’ aspirations and welfare at the heart of your vision. We are seeking someone  who values kindness and generosity, who can build transformational relationships and who wants to make a difference to every individual, as an individual.


The successful candidate will have the enthusiasm, energy and experience to lead a high-quality counselling service to pupils experiencing a wide range of emotional problems.  We are looking for someone who enjoys working with young people, and has an interest in them as individuals, ensuring that every pupil succeeds and gets the support and encouragement they need, as well as having the insight and communication skills to build strong relationships across the school.  A clinical supervisor qualification would be desirable.



We welcome your interest in being part of our journey at a time of continued development.


Roedean is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
