An exciting opportunity has arisen for an applied psychologist to take up the role of Clinical Lead for our Psychologically Informed Planned Environment (PIPE) at HMP Wayland. The post has arisen due to the impending retirement of the current incumbent.
The position is part of NSFT's Secure Services and located within our national Offender Personality Disorder Pathway portfolio delivered in partnership with HMPPS. NSFT Secure Services are consistently rated "Good" by the CQC and we aim to achieve "outstanding".
The current team at Wayland consists of forensic, clinical and counselling psychologists as well as assistants and trainees.
The clinical lead will be professionally accountable to a consultant grade psychologist and service lead. Regular external clinical supervision is provided as part of the national programme, as well as Pathway-specific training and local line management support. Some travel will be required, primarily to London and the Midlands. HMP Wayland is based in a rural location and therefore the ability to drive and access to a vehicle is essential. All candidates will be required to complete extensive security vetting by both HMPPS and NSFT prior to taking up the post.
Applications from suitably qualified and experienced Clinical, Forensic and Counselling psychologists will be considered. Our priority is to find a psychologist who is very committed to multidisciplinary partnership working and who will support NSFT and HMPPS colleagues in developing their psychological knowledge and skills in formulation and reflective practice, while providing an ongoing programme of support and progression activities to service users. Working with forensic personality disorder in a prison environment is particularly demanding and therefore the ability to utilize supervision to regulate personal emotional responses and promote wellbeing is essential.
Benefits included with this role are:-
Here at NSFT we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, talented, friendly and supportive team who like nothing better than sharing their experiences and learning from each other.
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.
