Ipswich Integrated Delivery Team
Clinical/Counselling Psychologist in Adult Services – Enhanced Community Pathway – Band 7-8a.
If appointed at a band 7, there is the possibility of increased hours.
An exciting opportunity exists within our Community Services. You will join our Integrated Delivery Team (IDT), based in Ipswich, providing secondary mental health services to people across the age ranges. Whilst working within a specific pathway you will have opportunities for close collaboration with colleagues from other pathways, disciplines and clinical backgrounds within the Integrated Delivery Team.
This post is part of a highly innovative and continuing developing part of the IDT. We provide services to those clients over the age of 18 who have not always benefited from previous service approaches and there will be a focus on group interventions, assisting integration and linking to existing community resources and developing therapeutic relationships based on resilience and wellness.
Clients who are currently being seen in this pathway tend to fall within three groups: those with depression and anxiety, those with attachment difficulties/emotional regulation problems and those with stable psychotic experiences. For all of these groups access to community resources is often compromised and limited. The client group often present with co-morbid difficulties alongside complex risk issues.
Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, you will work alongside another psychologist within the team to support multidisciplinary team meetings, reflective practice and learning.
In addition to group work and direct work, you will offer supervision and consultancy to team colleagues.
We would consider newly qualified Clinical Psychologists under a preceptorship arrangement, who have relevant experience and are committed to further developing their skills.
The post will be supported by a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with established arrangements for supervision. In addition to this there are regular psychology meetings and internal CPD events. We have strong links with the University of East Anglia. Research interests are encouraged and supported, as is CPD.
Benefits included with this role are:-
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIESApart from its legal duties in relation to equality and diversity, the Trust recognises and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Additionally, people with disabilities that fall under the Two Ticks - Guaranteed Interview Scheme will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post (outlined in the Person Specification). DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
