We are committed to providing high quality care for the people of Bradford, Airedale and Craven. Are You?
As a provider of care for people of all ages who have mental and/or community health needs we are dedicated to providing a high quality service, close to where people live and as much as possible tailored to an individual's needs.
The Psychological Therapy service working alongside the Community Mental Health Services (CMHS) are keen to recruit an enthusiastic and reliable Senior Clinical Psychologist to work in the CMHTs covering the North Bradford locality (0.8wte) and Airewharfe locality (0.5wte), supporting its work with service users and families. In particular the successful candidates will have experience of working with people with complex mental health problems, of working with individuals and groups, and working alongside colleagues from other disciplines in a multidisciplinary team context. They will be a professionally accredited Clinical Psychologists, with competency in utilising evidence based psychological approaches for working with service users with an array of psychological needs.
The successful candidate will have considerable experience of providing consultation, training and supervision to MDT colleagues, supporting their psychological awareness & skills practice.
The post holder will work within CMHS that cover the Bradford, Airewharfe and Craven localities, which is a geographically, socioeconomically and culturally diverse area, though this post will mainly work out of Somerset House, working alongside the North Bradford CMHT (inc. Shipley, Baildon, Saltaire and surrounding areas) and Meridian House, working alongside the Airedale and Wharfedale CMHT (inc. Keighley, Ilkley and surrounding areas). We would be happy to receive applications from individuals who might prefer alternative wte to those specified, though are keen to fill all hours available.
We would welcome your application if you'd like to work reflectively and creatively as part of a small but robust psychological therapy service within a busy and industrious CMHT context.
