We need to replace a Psychologist that has been promoted in our Youth Autism Diagnostic Service in Suffolk. We are a multidisciplinary team who work closely together to cover the Suffolk Commissioning group, assessing young people aged 11 -18 years.

You will be a team player, supportive, flexible and able to work efficiently with workload systems that are established and undertake assessments in accordance with NICE guidelines. Post diagnostic support services are still being developed but are short term compared to the whole diagnostic process. Ideally you will be able to undertake ADOS assessments and have experience of working with young people who have autism. There are assistant Psychologists that will need your clinical supervision and you will be supported and supervised by a Senior Psychologist in the same team.

We are a friendly professional team and we have an adult autism diagnostic team in the same office. Our office environment is positive and centrally located in Suffolk in Stowmarket.

We place a strong emphasis on home work life balance and professional development for all our staff. We would welcome applications from job share partners and can offer some flexibility in terms of hours worked.

Interviews will be held week commencing 5th March 2018
