Clinical Psychologist - Band 7 (0.8 wte) Permanent

Islington Community Neuro- Rehabilitation Team (ICNRT) and REACH are community-based teams providing multi-disciplinary rehabilitation to people with neurological and complex physical disabilities in Islington. Both are dynamic teams that enjoy working together to establish highly responsive and effective services.

This is an ideal role for a newly qualified psychologist as it is varied with opportunities for direct clinical work, consultation and teaching. It is perfect for gaining the range of experience necessary for developing an interest in working with older adults or studying for the QiCN. We are very supportive of anyone wishing to pursue this qualification and we have a proven track record of people successfully achieving it.

You will be part of a larger network of psychologists working in neuropsychology and community work with people with physical and neurological disabilities. We are very committed to making our services accessible to all.

Main duties of the job

Central to your role will be the provision of psychological input and staff consultation to the REACH team; a community rehabilitation and intermediate care team for adults and older people. Working closely with your supervisor, you will also deliver specialist psychological assessment (including neuropsychological assessment), advice and a range of therapeutic interventions to people referred to the ICNRT team. You will supervise an assistant psychologist.
