Are you our next Career Counsellor?
Using your strong counselling skills, you will support clients considering career transition, impacting both their personal and professional wellbeing. Our clients are typically already working (from entry level roles to professionals, executives, and entrepreneurs), but are often feeling stuck, unfulfilled, or uncertain about their careers. Most have have extended health care benefits that cover some, or all, of their sessions. This is a counselling role – not a role designed to help clients find/gain employment. You will support clients as they develop their career identity and create a job search focus.
Previous career counselling/life transition counselling experience is an asset, but not required. Working collaboratively with our team, you will be trained on our proprietary career counselling process.

There is great diversity in our client group as they each individual comes with a unique background. Your counselling will address both their personal and career related concerns.
