An Equal Opportunity Employer
The Hounslow Youth Counselling Service is committed to equality of opportunity in the service it provides to the community and its workforce. We are looking for applicants who are committed to our Equal Opportunities Policy.
Safeguarding Young People
The service is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We require two references and we will carry out an enhanced DBS check on all successful applicants.
Our recruitment and selection process is designed to enable both the Service and the applicants to make realistic decisions about whether to work together or not. The process involves an interview, a residential weekend as well as an induction period and core training. For us to be thorough in our selection this will take some time.
