Job Description

CTC is an Independent psychology practice and an Ofsted Registered Adoption Support Agency.  We have been established since 1988, and provide specialist assessment (including Forensic work), therapeutic intervention, training, consultancy and Adoption Support services.  We are looking for an enthusiastic Assistant Psychologist to join our Multi-disciplinary Team.  The team approach is eclectic, with a strong focus on psychodynamic, developmental and Attachment/Trauma, including Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and EMDR.

The post requires a minimum 2.1 degree, a capacity for fast learning and independent thinking, and an ability to work flexibly across the age range.  The work is exciting and challenging, and requires good organisational and time-management skills.  Our practice is based in Chester but serves a wide area, including the North West, Cumbria, the Midlands, Derbyshire and Wales, and some travel is therefore required.  The post offers a wide range of relevant experience for those looking to undertake Clinical Psychology training in the future.

Our service is committed to the protection and safeguarding of children, young people and adults in need.  The successful applicant will therefore be required to provide an Enhanced DBS, the cost of which will be met by CTC.

The Job Description, Person Specification and Application Form (in both Word and pdf format, for your preference) are provided below.  You may also provide your CV with your application if you wish, but we can only consider applications that include our completed Application Form, in order to comply with our policy on Safer Recruitment, which is also part of our Ofsted compliance.  Your completed and signed Application Form must be emailed to or posted to:
