A Job Description and Person Specification applicable to the posts is attached. If you submit an application please state whether you have a preference for any of the posts. Your preferences will be discussed at interview if you are shortlisted.
The successful candidates will be expected to apply assessment, formulation, therapeutic and consultation skills with individuals, families and carers across a wide range of referrals. They will also be involved in joint working and consultation with multi-disciplinary team members, supervision of relevant staff, staff training, and service audit and development projects. Previous experience of working with people with psychosis is essential. The clients we see come from many different cultures and backgrounds and the work is always varied and interesting.
The post holders will be members of a lively, well-established and valued team of more than 20 psychological therapists in the Recovery and Rehabilitation Division. These professionals are enthusiastic, flexible and creative, and are committed to regular peer-support. They sometimes work together across teams within the R&R Division, for example in delivery of innovative psychology groups or audit projects. The R&R psychology service has an excellent reputation for provision of regular, high-quality supervision to its staff. In addition, there is very good scope for continued professional development within the Trust. For example, all newly- or recently-qualified psychologists are eligible to attend the four modules of our psychology CPD programme, covering CBT, systemic approaches, psychodynamic theories and group work.
The post requires Health and Care Professions Council registration as a Clinical or Counselling Psychologist. If the person has just received their Clinical or Counselling psychology qualification but still awaits HCPC registration, or if there is significant delay in obtaining qualification as a result of requirements to make major thesis corrections, then initial appointment at Band 6 as a trainee psychologist, with progression to Band 7 when both qualification and HCPC registration are in place, will be considered.
In line with NHS protocols, only those applicants who demonstrate clearly how they meet our person specification will be shortlisted for interview. We regret that it is not possible to contact all applicants for every vacancy. If you have not been contacted within 4-6 weeks of the closing date please assume you have not been shortlisted for the next stage
We reserve the right to close any vacancies from further submissions, when we have received sufficient applications from which to make a shortlist. Please ensure you apply without delay if you wish to be considered for this role. We are an employer committed to Equal Opportunities and Diversity, with a range of family friendly policies.
