An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated (0.8 wte) Assistant Psychologist, higher level, to work in the Enhanced Pathway for Personality Disorders.
The Enhanced Pathway for Personality Disorders, provided by BSMHFT, operatesfrom Solihull but the post holder would be expected to travel across the trust to deliver services when required. We work directly with clients who may have received a diagnosis of personality and related difficulties, and work alongside and support professionals and teams across the trust.
The applicant would be supervised by an experienced clinical psychologist, and be a member of a team comprising various psychological professionals. However, we pride ourselves on our multidisciplinary working and much of the assistant psychologist's work will involve engaging other professionals.
It is our hope that the successful candidate for the assistant psychologist post will have a future in clinical psychology.
Main duties of the job
The role will suit an experienced assistant psychologist who has already worked as a paid assistant in the NHS and who is eager to develop the broad range of skills clinical psychologists hold, beyond individual or group therapeutic work. The post holder would support the delivery of training across the trust and supervision groups and consultation and experience in one of these areas is essential for this role.
