We are looking for an experienced Clinical Psychologist to work within the older person’s acute services based at the Julian Hospital in Norwich.
The Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is a Trust in need of change and getting the right culture to improve the quality and safety of services to support service users is top of our agenda. We are particularly looking for someone whose values are consistent with the Trust values of working together Positively, Respectfully and Together.
This post provides a real opportunity to be involved in service transformation that puts service users at the very heart of them.
The post would predominantly be an inpatient role providing psychology services to four wards. The wards are modern and are considered to be one of the better performing areas within the Trust. There will be the opportunity for some limited community work to support the continuing professional development of the post holder should they wish. The acute services cater for both people with dementia and also people with mental health difficulties. Work will involve a mixture of individual work, group work, consultation, training, supervision, service development and evaluation. The post is full time but we also welcome applications from people who may wish to work part- time or job share.
You will be working in a friendly and supportive service which values supervision and the importance of professional and personal development. There are good formal and informal support networks with other Clinical Psychologists working within this specialism both within the Trust and across the region.
The Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is a large organisation serving the population of Norfolk and Suffolk. The Trust provides plenty of opportunities to become involved in teaching, training and research. The Trust has a close relationship with the University of East Anglia and offers placements for trainee Clinical Psychologists on the Doctoral Training Programme and opportunities to become involved with the Programme. There is also a thriving research network with a focus on dementia with both a dedicated Trust post and shared appointments between the UEA and the Trust. This provides an excellent network to tap into for anyone interested in research.
Norfolk is a great place to live. Norwich is a vibrant city, the first UNESCO City of Literature and with an excellent range of shopping, cultural activities and entertainment. Norfolk has easy access to beautiful coastline and the Broads National Park.

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.
