We are actively looking for new Counsellors all around the world to join us as independent professionals. You must have a minimum of 5 years work experience in education counselling either through an established education consultancy, working directly for a University or for an organisation such as the British Council, IDP etc.
You must be able to guide students accurately from initial enquiry through to course application and preparing documents to support an application for a student visa. It is desirable but not essential that you have visited the UK.
As an independent counsellor you are not an employee. You will need to be comfortable to work from home counselling students online or in covid-19 safer zones outside such as in cafes, coffee shops, terraces of hotels etc. You will have full flexibility over your time and how you schedule your counselling sessions whilst at the same time taking into account the most likely convenient times for students and parents.
Counsellors handle all their own marketing and promotion of their counselling services. A successful counsellor is likely to have already built a solid reputation amongst the local student community as a knowledgeable and experienced Counsellor with a proven track record counselling students on studying in the UK.
Connect2Counsellors handles all the contractual relations with universities and colleges including the receipt of appropriate payments which are subsequently majority shared with Counsellors according to the number of students successfully placed at a client institution. A Counsellor who assists 20 students with applying to study and for a student visa is likely to receive an income of approximately £35,000/Rs 36 lakhs/AED 176,000/USD 48,000. Further payment details will be provided to Counsellors at the time of application.
If you think you meet the minimum requirements and are interested in becoming an independent Counsellor with flexible working hours and potential high remuneration then please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
Universities and Colleges
Connect2Counsellors welcomes enquiries from any University or College that is interested in recruiting overseas students to their courses.
We operate a different model to the standard education consultancy. We have no overseas offices as our independent counsellors work from home. Counsellors receive a majority share of any remuneration the company receives through contractual agreements with Universities and Colleges. We will be happy to explain this further to you so you can understand our business model.
Although we are a young company and organisation we collectively have a wealth of experience and knowledge of counselling students, promoting British education and successfully placing overseas students in UK universities and colleges.
If your institution is not based in the UK we would be pleased to hear from you if you wish to recruit more overseas students. Many of our Counsellors have backgrounds not only in counselling students for courses in the UK but for courses in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the USA.
