By coming to work at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust you will be joining a Trust with a national reputation for research, where services recognise that research underpins its commitment to providing high quality and innovative clinical care.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I values are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.

We are looking to employ an enthusiastic and motivated Clinical/ Counselling Psychologist to work within the Personality Disorder Service provided by Camden & Islington Foundation Trust (CIFT) - 0.6WTE for 12 months.

The Personality Disorder Service is made up of a Community Team (providing Structured Case Management) and a Therapies Team.

This will involve working as a therapist and case manager within a multidisciplinary team delivering individual and group based interventions, and engaging in group and individual supervision aimed at promoting adherence and improving the service we offer. The role will also involve screening referrals, liaising with referrers and communicating referral decisions to service-users.

This is a dynamic service that is continuously improving and evolving within a changing NHS climate. This post provides an opportunity to work as part of a supportive and motivated team, committed to working compassionately with people with personality disorders.
