We have an exciting opportunity for an Clinical Psychologist(s) to play a lead role within the Central Norfolk Adult Community City and South Teams. The post is a six month fixed term/secondment opportunity from 2nd July 2018 to 31st December 2018 and a job share will also be considered. 22.5 hours of the post will be in the City Teams and 7.5 hours will be in the South Teams.
We are particularly looking for someone to develop our Clinical Pathway in Psychosis and to provide line management, clinical and professional supervision to 8a psychologists and band 7 psychological therapists. Other key roles for this post include the management of referrals; conducting assessments; carrying a clinical caseload of service users with severe and complex presentations (individual and group work); providing consultation and training to team members and consolidating the establishment of a psychological formulation based approach within the teams. Experience of working with service users presenting with psychosis would be essential. The post holder will be working alongside other 8b clinical psychologists and will need to be able to share responsibilities and decision making regarding the overall provision of Psychological Services within the City and South Teams.
The City Psychological Therapists are partly based at the Julian Hospital, Bowthorpe Road, Norwich and partly at the Peddars Centre, Hellesdon Hospital. South locality Psychology Services are based in Gateway House, Wymondham. In both locations psychological therapists are based within friendly and supportive multidisciplinary teams, and offer specialist interventions including CBT, CAT, ACT, Compassion- and Schema-Focused Therapy, as well as EMDR. Options for group work include the Emotional Wellbeing group, MBT group, and the Veterans' Stabilization Programme for ex-Forces personnel. Psychology Services across the South and City Teams have strong links with partners including UEA, and NSFT's Recovery College, in which they play an active role.
**Interviews are due to be held on 20th March 2018 (subject to change)**
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.
