About The Role

Have you thought about working within prison healthcare?
Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, then this is it!

The role of the Clinical Psychologist will be to support the IMHT with assessment and interventions for complex patients, offer consultation/reflective practice to the team, and clinical supervision to the assistant psychologists. The direct clinical work includes undertaking psychological assessments, supporting complex multi-disciplinary formulations, and delivering psychological interventions for cases of great complexity. You will also be required to utilise research skills for audit, policy and service development, and research within the area served by the team/service.

About You

The successful candidate must be registered with the HCPC and hold a DPsych in Clinical Psychology or equivalent in Forensic Psychology. As the successful candidate you'll have post-qualification experience of working with a wide variety of client groups, across the life span and presenting with the full range of clinical severity in a variety of care settings such as outpatient, criminal justice, in-patient forensic mental health and residential care settings. You'll also be able to evidence an active interest in prison/forensic mental health.

You’ll receive an annual salary up to £58,000 per annum - depending on experience. We offer a whole host of additional benefits such as: cycle to work scheme, free DBS check, free uniform, an extensive training and development structure for all employees along with an employee recognition scheme.
