We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Clinical or Counselling Psychologist interested in working in our multidisciplinary community service for adults with complex mental health needs based at Northcroft Community Mental Health Team. Applications are encouraged from trainees in their final year or with experience for a full-time Band 7 position.

The post holder will have the opportunity to work with people who present with psychosis, personality disorder and treatment resistant problems such as depression, OCD, PTSD and complex trauma. The individual will have excellent opportunities to gain experience of multilevel and integrated service provision and to further develop skills of complex case assessment, formulation and the application of evidence based psychological interventions, both individual and in groups. Other exciting opportunities include facilitating reflective practice groups, leading team workshops, supervising others with research and clinical work and service development projects.

You would be joining a service with over 40 psychologists where you would be managed and supervised by experienced psychologists able to support your learning and professional development needs offering a range of clinical models and accreditation opportunities.

We have an active and stimulating CPD programme and you would have protected CPD time. We have long and well established links with local Doctoral training courses alongside hosting regular placements for MRES, MSCi and undergraduate programmes.

Experience of working in multidisciplinary teams and of working therapeutically with a range of client groups is essential, as is the motivation to work with people with complex needs.
