We are looking to recruit an Assistant Psychologist to our Youth Mental Health Team based at Newmarket Hospital in Suffolk. The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, motivated, committed to personal and professional development and able to engage with young people with complex mental health difficulties and their families. They will be working as part of a friendly and dynamic multi-disciplinary team under direct supervision from an experienced Clinical Psychologist.
The remit of the team is to work with young people presenting with complex mental health difficulties and associated levels of risk. We take a systemic and recovery oriented approach to understanding and working with youth mental health, incorporating therapeutic approaches such as CBT, ACT and DBT.
The post holder will work with children and young people (aged 14 - 25 years), and their families. Their core role will involve providing low intensity, structured interventions; developing and coordinating therapeutic resources within the team; supporting care coordinator’s in their therapeutic work with clients; co-facilitating workshops and groups; carrying out clinical evaluation and audit; and supporting with clinical research. Experience working with young people or families would be beneficial.
The post is community based and will involve independent travel to often rural locations. The post holder will therefore need a driving license and access to a reliable vehicle.
Interviews will be on the 13th of 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.
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.
