Band 8a Specialist Child Clinical Psychologist – Psychology Team – Social Communication

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated and organised Specialist Child Clinical Psychologist (Band 8a OR Band 7 preceptorship) to join our Psychology Team – Social Communication pathway.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Psychologist who has an interest in working with children and young people who have experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and who present with social communication concerns. The successful applicant will join an experienced Clinical Psychology team to work alongside Community Paediatricians and Speech and Language Therapists who form a Multidisciplinary Team approach. The Specialist Clinical Psychologist will contribute to the ongoing strategic development of the Psychology Team, provide child psychology assessments as appropriate and offer consultation and psychology opinion to all members of the MDT.

The Psychology Team – Social Communication sits within the LPFT Child Psychological Therapies Service. The post holder will have access to clinical and professional supervision from an experienced clinical psychologist. The post holder will be managed within the LPFT Child Psychological Therapies Service and will have close links within this and with other health services.

The Psychology Team provide a countywide service to children and young people across sites in Lincoln, Boston, Spalding, Grantham and Louth. The post holder will be expected to travel to other sites in the county as required. It is planned that the post holder will be based in Lincoln, although applicants are welcome to discuss arrangements for location of base as this may be negotiated. In addition, the service makes use of digital technology that supports home working which is appropriate for many aspects of this post.

We are looking to recruit to a full time 8a post. We would also welcome applications from recently qualified psychologists or those completing training who wish to apply for a full-time band 7 preceptorship post. With a preceptorship position the band 7 post will progress to band 8a subject to the post holder successfully completing identified targets, based upon acquired skills and agenda for change job matching to an 8a job description.

This post is currently funded until 31/3/2023 although it is expected that further investment will be agreed for this highly valued psychology resource. This post is being advertised as permanent because there will be opportunities for the recruited applicant to move into an alternative psychology role within our Health Trust from 1/4/23 if the funding for this post is not extended.

For enquiries regarding the post or to arrange an informal discussion please contact Dr Chloe Isbister (Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist) on 07583060053 or chloeisbister@nhs.net.
