A placement is a vital part of counselling training, allowing trainee counsellors to apply their knowledge and develop their skills safely under supervision. Advertising on our jobs board offers a unique opportunity to promote your vacancy to our student members.

Terms and conditions

Advertisements are accepted at our discretion. They must comply with BACP policies and practice and the British Code of Advertising Practice.

Please ensure you meet all of the advertising requirements for placement opportunities before you make a booking because:

  • due to our commitment to support our qualified members in finding paid work, we can only advertise voluntary or placement roles to trainee practitioners
  • we cannot promote placements that have any associated fees or cost for students (for example supervision, training and CPD costs should be provided as part of the placement)

Please see BACP advertising terms and conditions (pdf) for full details.
