Through NHS England National funding we are establishing a new regional gambling treatment service.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Therapist to join the newly formed Gambling Harms Treatment Service based within Southampton Division at Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust.

This role will support the development of a brand-new treatment service, using a digital psychotherapeutic informed approach to treat people who experience problem gambling.

The service will open to referrals later in 2022, initially covering the geographical area of Southampton, and then further expanding to provide cover across the South East footprint.

Previous experience in treating addiction is desirable (alcohol or substance use disorder, and/or problem gambling). However, we also welcome enthusiastic applicants from other disciplines. The service will support staff to receive training in the very latest evidence-based approaches for problem gambling.

The Clinical Therapist will report directly into the Lead Psychologist for the Service. Suitable applicants will need to demonstrate experience of both highly specialised clinical skills and the ability to supervise and clinically support colleagues within the team.

We are working to a flexible workforce model and will consider part time applicants if they meet the necessary skills required. There will be opportunity to work closely with other gambling teams across the country (as well as international experts) and to evaluate current evidence base in relation to gambling and apply this in the proposed treatment model.

We encourage and invest in an individual’s personal and professional development and help them to achieve their goals by ensuring they have access to regular supervision, in-house and external training opportunities.

If this role sounds of interest to you and you think this could be the right step into a leadership role for you, then please get in touch!

We look forward to hearing from you.

Happy to talk flexible working- all requests for flexible and part time working will be considered.

Any attachments will be accessible after you click to apply.
