Phoenix Psychology are looking for a Clinical Psychologist to join our Adult Service Team
This is a unique opportunity to work with an independent, forward thinking, organically expanding organisation supported by a small, friendly team of like-minded professionals. We are a value driven and a compassionately organised organisation, meaning we aim to support those in our community who may struggle elsewhere to access a timely service. We support each other and recognise the importance of a work life balance. We respect the need, particularly in the current climate, for flexible and balanced working practices. We want you to experience support and room to develop professionally and personally as well as having the opportunity to help to grow and expand our business and invest in its future. We are committed to promoting equality, valuing diversity, and practicing in ways that encourage reflection.
Our small and friendly team support each other, and like everyone at Phoenix, we bring passion, commitment, and integrity to our work. Within the service, we are influenced by Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and therefore experience in ACT or CFT is desirable, but not essential as we will support you to develop in these areas. We would welcome someone with experience of other relevant models, such as EMDR, and in completing cognitive assessments. As a team we will support you to develop your one to one and group therapy skills alongside developing your leadership, training, and service development skills. In return, we are looking for someone who will be invested in carrying out meaningful work to genuinely support our community. Someone driven to develop psychological mindedness in organisations.
Although we are a lifespan service, we do tend to work primarily in speciality areas and therefore are currently looking to recruit a Clinical Psychologist into our specialist services for adults. The post will be working across a range of contracts, which does mean willingness to travel across the region is essential.
Full or part time hours can be considered. The salary will be geared towards someone who might be looking for a Band 7 NHS role – but who may be considering an alternative way of doing things.
To apply please e-mail Ruth.Billingham@phoenixpsychology.com a CV and covering letter. To talk to Dr Clare Thompson, our Head of Adult Services, about the role call 01926 485760. The closing date is Monday 17 August 2020.
