Student Placements, Volunteers and Job Opportunities

Student placements


New Dawn takes on new counselling placement students from time to time. The centre keeps a list of students who enquired about placement opportunities at the centre. When the time comes, we invite them to make the application. If you are interested in going on the waiting list for a student placement, please email us your training course, which year you are in and your contact details.


New Dawn could not function without the commitment of our volunteers. We are always looking for people with a gentle manner who are comfortable speaking on the phone; sometimes with people in distress. Other roles include completing forms or paperwork, taking messages or getting things ready for meetings. All our volunteers are given training and support. If you have some time to spare and feel you could make a contribution to our team we would love to hear from you, please contact us . 

Job Opportunities

Occasionally opportunities arise for qualified counsellors to join the team at New Dawn. As a CIC, we are a group of self employed counsellors working in a non-profit organisation. This means we do not directly employ team members. When these opportunities arise to join the team, as a self-employed counsellor, we contact all who have expressed an interest and invite them to attend an open day at the centre, to get to know us a little and see the facilities. If you would like to be invited to the next open day, please download an application form, complete the form and return it to us via email.
