An opportunity has arisen to appoint an accredited psychological therapist or clinical/counselling psychologist to a substantive Psychological Therapist post within the adult service line in West Norfolk. You will join a supportive and enthusiastic team of psychological practitioners, with a range of specialist skills and interests, including personality disorder, psychosis, CBT, mentalisation based therapy, CAT and psychodynamic psychotherapy. The psychology team is embedded within the community mental health team, offering assessment, intervention, supervision, consultation and training across a diverse range of mental health presentations
We are looking for someone who is passionate about mental health, someone whose clinical skills and interests may complement or enhance those already provided, someone who can work well within a team setting, and someone who can embrace and support the Recovery philosophy promoted by the Trust.
The development of specialist interests and skills will be actively encouraged and supported, in line with service needs, as will links with networks of colleagues across the Trust area of Norfolk and Suffolk, and the University of East Anglia.
Psychology is a well-established and valued resource in the West Locality, and the work environment is pleasant and supportive. The post is based in King’s Lynn. It can be considered on a full-time or part-time job-share arrangement.
West Norfolk is a mixed rural and urban area and offers a high quality of life in terms of housing, culture and leisure pursuits. The beautiful Norfolk coast is on the doorstep, whilst there are good road and rail links with London, Cambridge, Norwich and the midlands. Car ownership would be an advantage given the wide geographical area.
Interviews will be held early March 2018
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.
