Finding a job through Take a Seat People has a lot of advantages. Firstly, we have excellent relationships with many of the largest clinics in the UK, giving you exclusive access to their jobs. You’ll also get put forward for positions that you wouldn’t otherwise have heard about. The trust we have built means you will stand out more than submitting a CV on your own. We have a range of candidate services that help you to find the role that fits your values.

Knowledge & advice

We can provide you with realistic salary levels for your chosen role and advice as to which roles are suited to your skillset. We’ll also help with your CV and modify terminology to ensure your language is consistent with your chosen market.

Exclusive jobs

We spend a lot of time networking with our clients to find out about upcoming jobs that do not make it to the mainstream job boards. Therefore, registering with us means that you gain access to exclusive jobs.

Know your worth

We can manage the salary negotiation process on your behalf and potentially get you the salary you want, without damaging the relationship you have with your future employer.

What our therapists say

We can tell you about the amazing things we can do for your business, but we think our therapists can tell you better. After all, what they think is what really matters.

Friendly, professional, empowering support.

Thank you so much for your friendly, professional, and empowering support. This is the first time I have had recruitment support, (in a very long career), the experience was really nice. This process can be daunting and can lead to self-doubts and to me underselling myself. Having someone to say, "I've got your back- you are doing well", felt very grounding and helped me to see my skills more objectively. Thank you so much!

Esther Slattery CBT & EMDR Psychotherapist

Super supportive!

I felt supported throughout - clear communication discussing roles, putting me forward for roles that aligned with what I was looking for and interview preparation! Great interpersonal style which made me feel at ease. Thank you very much, I really appreciate it and can’t wait to start in my new role.

Eve McIntyre CBT Psychotherapist

Helpful and thorough.

Take a Seat has been really helpful and thorough in helping me to secure a new post with a Psychological Therapy organisation. They helped me prepare for the interview and have maintained consistent contact with the employer and myself to ensure a smooth transition takes place. I would recommend Josh and Take a Seat.

Miranda Currie BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist

Exemplary. Efficient.

Take a Seat were exemplary in their conduct and efficiency in securing opportunities to interview. They provided extensive information on prospective employers and oversaw the interview process with supportive guidance. It has been a pleasure working with them, my experience was seamless and without any hiccup or delay. They have been very patient and accommodating our liaison around my schedule. I thank you Take a Seat for the hard work you have provided on my behalf in helping me to secure a position within a week of initial contact. I look forward to commencing the role and also to working with you again in the future. I would of course encourage and recommend job seekers to utilise this service.

Alexa Lewis Cognitive Behavioural High Intensity Therapist

Met my needs

After a lot of uncertainty within my previous role, I was able to have an interview that met my needs and will allow me to continue in my practice- I can’t thank Take a Seat enough for their support with the transition.

Holly Porter CBT Therapist

Continued support.

I highly recommend working with Take a Seat. They have offered endless support and made my job search seamless. They have also continued this support in my first weeks in my new role.

Yvonne Phelan Paediatric Occupational Therapist

Definitely recommend

If you are looking for a new role or wanting to explore career options I would most definitely recommend Take a Seat - I hadn't thought about using a recruiter before but I'm glad I gave it a try, they knew of roles with companies I had not heard of before and were very prompt in their response each time I emailed them. They were very thorough in finding out about what I wanted from an employer and were able to send me over a number of potential options - and I very happily secured a role with the one that most suited my needs. Thanks for your help Take a Seat.
