We have an exciting opportunity for a Band 8a Clinical Psychologist to work in the community Older Persons service line across the Great Yarmouth and Waveney locality. The post is hosted at Carlton Court Hospital near Lowestoft.
This diverse role will enable you to undertake assessment, formulation and intervention work with older people with a range of functional and organic conditions. The work will be multi-disciplinary and will involve you working closely with nursing, medical and therapy colleagues in the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT), Memory Treatment Service (MTS) and the Dementia and Intensive Support Team (DIST).
The role will be fully supervised and supported by the 8b Clinical Psychologist also working in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney locality and you will work closely together to develop and enhance psychological services and approaches across the locality. This will involve consultation, training and service development roles. A significant proportion of the role will involve neuropsychological assessment of complex cases for suspected neurodegenerative impairment. There will be opportunities to be involved in service evaluation, audit and/or research. There will also be opportunities to access relevant continuing professional development.
We are looking for a HCPC accredited Clinical Psychologist; applications from people about to complete their training in Clinical Psychology will also be considered. We are seeking a candidate who can demonstrate the ability to apply psychological understanding to their clinical work with compassion and care whilst promoting the values of trust.
The service has very well established links with the Doctorate in Clinical psychology based at University of East Anglia, and the post holder will be expected to supervise trainee Clinical Psychologists on placement.
Interviews will be held on Monday 5th March and this will be confirmed nearer the time.
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.
