Reports to  Head of Clinical Services

We have a new and exciting opportunity for a Clinical Psychologist.

We are in a significant period of growth for the Trust’s clinical services. We work across the whole spectrum of education settings across the north west, alongside providing specialist input to Trust services more broadly, i.e. residential and community.

The new role of Clinical Psychologist is key to the development our services offer, with real opportunity to creatively develop new service models, raise the profile of psychologist expertise and provide expert input via a Trust wide multi-disciplinary approach.

The purpose of the role is to ensure clinical practice, quality and consistency of service is maintained and improved across all areas of delivery. The Clinical Psychologist is a key role within the Clinical Services Management Team providing support and clinical leadership to multi-disciplinary staff working within and across Trust services, and externally within Schools and wider social care services.

The post holder will balance their time between clinical leadership, encompassing quality and compliance auditing and analysis of practice to drive improvement, alongside providing direct psychology support- working alongside our Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), Speech and Language, Occupational Therapists, Sleep Service Practitioners, Counsellors and Education Psychologists. The Clinical Psychologist will be expected to assess needs, abilities and behaviours using a variety of methods including psychometric assessments, interviews and direct observation.

Work collaboratively with teams across school and social care settings to support the mental health and psychological needs of CYP.

We would like the Lead to build relationships with Universities and further education to facilitate and support placement opportunities for Psychologists in training. The Clinical Lead will act as onsite supervisor and lead contact for Universities. The aim is to drive this work forward and benefit the Trust, with an influx of skills and expertise, alongside developing a pipeline of new skills and opportunities available- feeding potential for future recruitment.
