Applications are invited from a qualified UK HCPC registered clinical psychologist with a desire to develop expertise in the context of the Adult Mental Health Service Community Mental Health Teams to join the locality team serving North West Leicestershire for a full-time, permanent post at Agenda for Change Band 8A.

Following recognition of the increased demand for clinical psychology services, we are looking for a qualified clinical psychologist to join the multi-disciplinary team working in this community setting. This post will provide clinical psychology services to a locality team and will benefit from presence of working alongside an existing senior 8B clinical psychologist. This post will require excellent resource management, flexibility and imagination on the part of the post-holder and, while it will retain a significant direct service delivery aspect, it will equally emphasise delivering clinical psychology services via a consultative and supervisory role.

The Adult Mental Health clinical psychology service encompass locality teams, forensic, assertive outreach, homeless mental health and rehabilitation services under the line management of a Consultant Clinical Psychologist. This is a diverse and non-doctrinaire group of applied psychologists who continue to welcome new colleagues with fresh approaches to the delivery of services to adults with mental health problems.

Informal discussions regarding this post are welcome with Denis Salter (Head of Adult Mental Health Clinical Psychology) on (0778) 670 4545 or Sarah Simmonds (Locality Clinical Psychologist) on (0153) 045 3800 or
