The Children and Young People’s Directorate in Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is offering an exciting opportunity for two Band 7 Clinical/Counselling Psychologists to join the newly developed Community Based Intensive Intervention Team (East). The South East (Redhill) and North East (Epsom) Intensive Intervention Teams are friendly and passionate Multi-Disciplinary Teams working with children and families who would benefit from intensive or extensive treatment for their mental health needs.
We are looking to recruit to two permanent positions at Band 7 level either full or part time for a minimum of 22.5 hours per week (0.6 WTE). One position will be based at Gatton Place in Redhill, and the other will be based at St Ebba's in Epsom. You will be joining at a very exciting time, as our services transform to adopt the Thrive Framework in close collaboration with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust and the Surrey Wellbeing Partnership.
These posts will suit committed and passionate Psychologists looking for opportunities for career development. These are ideal posts for a newly qualified Psychologist, or an experienced Band 7 Psychologist looking to move into CAMHS work to expand their knowledge and experience.
You will help the service provide support for children, young people and families within a socially, economically and culturally diverse county. As a Psychologist in the team, you would contribute to core CAMHS work, including offering Initial Assessments, Reviews and Interventions with children, young people and their families to actively formulate and manage clinical need and risk. The role will provide the opportunity to become involved in delivering evidence-based individual and group interventions. You will be given the opportunity to consider supervisory roles appropriate to your stage of development, as the team includes Assistant Psychologists, CBT Therapists and Trainee Clinical Psychologists on placement from doctoral training at the University of Surrey.
The CYPS directorate and Psychology discipline is supported by an active Learning and Development department, with additional training encouraged. The service has excellent links with the Clinical Psychology Doctorate at the University of Surrey. The post provides an excellent opportunity for you to develop your skills and knowledge via regular clinical supervision by experienced Clinical Psychologists and offers the opportunity for you to be part of Quality Improvement (QI) projects. There are also active specialist interest groups (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; Foetal Alcohol Syndrome; and Systemic Psychotherapy) forming reflective practice and supervision groups.
We would encourage any interested potential applicants with different levels of experience to make contact to discuss the options for recruitment within the service. We are open to discussing options regarding work base/ working hours if applicants are looking for flexibility with their working pattern. There can be a mix of face-to-face work from CYPS Community Team bases and remote working from home.
