This well supported post is ideal for someone seeking a career as a psychological professional and who wants to grow diverse skills that contribute to trauma-informed working. We offer:

We nurture new ideas, put co-production at the heart of what we do, and provide practitioners with the support to explore and grow. Within this role, you will work directly with individuals and groups, flexibly delivering psychological support that responds to the context of people’s lives and works with the social determinants of health.
