We have an exciting opportunity for a clinical psychologist who is keen to work in community mental healthcare. The vacancy is available as a fixed-term post or secondment for one year in the first instance. A substantive post may be negotiable.
You will help us develop and deliver psychology services to the community mental health teams in Southampton.
