An exciting opportunity has arisen for a clinical psychologist to work within a multidisciplinary recovery-focussed adult community mental health team.

The role will involve working closely with the multidisciplinary team, offering the opportunity to focus on the role of the clinical psychologist. The service involves working with adults from the age of 26 across the lifespan with complex mental health difficulties.

The team covers West Norfolk, with easy access to the beautiful coast, cheap house prices and an emphasis on staff wellbeing and work-life balance. We have close links with the local doctoral training course, and regularly supervise trainee clinical psychologists for their adult mental health placements.

We would hope the successful candidate would be enthusiastic to supervise trainees and continue to build links locally. The role will include delivering evidence-based psychological interventions, specialist/complex assessment and formulation, clinical supervision, teaching and training. The successful candidate will help the team continue to develop their psychological understanding and contribute to the development of psychologically informed services.

Currently acute services are based in another locality and we are please to share that they will be joining the Chatterton House site in the near future , one the new build has been completed. This will mean that the Acute Ward and Crisis/ Home treatment team will then be co located.
