We’re recruiting

We are recruiting! We have two part-time positions available at Crew as part of our counselling services team. We are looking for a part-time accupunturist and part-time mindfulness practitioner.

Crew offers ear acupuncture which can help people relax and find relief from stress and anxiety as part of recovery. Ear acupuncture sessions take place in a group environment and include a guided meditation. Acupuncture at Crew follows the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol.

Currently, every two weeks, we offer a guided meditation session with an introduction to mindfulness meditation techniques, which can be helpful for supporting recovery and for people affected by another person’s drug use.

The acupuncture/guided meditation group takes place on a Tuesday, 5.30 – 6.30pm and we are looking for people who can commit to leading the sessions for at least a year.

See below for more information about the current vacancies.
