    Default Alcohol & Drug Counsellor Jobs

    This is my current employment, I've been doing it for a number of years and have training/qualifications (though not a degree).

    I cannot find what kind of salaries these jobs get in NZ.
    There are plenty of vacancies listed on the employment sites, but nothing about the payscales.

    Can anyone shed any light on this? The pay in the UK is about the same as a teacher or social worker...

    I don't know if you can pick up some information from any of these sites. Unfortunately your particular job isn't what you would call 'run of the mill' so it may be difficult to find.

    Default Alcohol & Drug Counsellor pay

    Hi Melvind


    Alcohol & Drug Counsellor pay, depends if your working for an NGO or the District Health Board.

    Salary range from $35000 - around $50000 is the normal unless your in private practice. You will also need to be a member of NZAC which can be a complicated procedure for overseas applications and is costly $ wise. Before you can become a professional member you will have to complete an additional 400hrs with a NZ supervisor. I suggest you Look on the NZAC website on membership for further guidance.

    Good Luck
