Job Description

Everyone’s Turning Point is unique. It’s the moment when they realise they’ve made a small, but important, step forward. Very often, that small step is the start of something bigger. But only when the right support, advice and services are in place. As a Clinical Psychologist, you'll make a real difference to people's lives. Passionate about supporting people, you'll enjoy the opportunity and support to enhance your own life and career too, as you make this role your own as part of our friendly, multidisciplinary team.

What will I be doing?

This role is unique in its offering so while you will carry an active caseload using Turning Point's remote working technology (face-to-face via video/screen) supporting gaps in psychology provision as required, you will be working within our digital development team. As the clinical lead you will play a key role in the design, implementation and quality audit of Turning Point's new digitally delivered  psycho-social interventions supporting people with a range of needs, including; substance misuse, health and wellbeing, sexual health and mental health. The role will provide clinical guidance and training across the organisation to ensure high quality digital interventions are delivered, supporting local clinical/operational leads and ensuring best practice is shared and implemented. Overseeing and conducting qualitative and quantitative research will support the on-going assessment and improvement of Turning Point's digital solution – “My Turning Point” – to maximise the effectiveness for the people we support.

Why Turning Point?

We take pride in the services that we provide. There is one vision that everyone at Turning Point shares, which is held together by our values. These include believing in potential, communicating in a confident way, embracing change and treating each other as individuals. Delivering health and social care services as a social enterprise, we invest every penny back into our care - and our people. So, if you're ambitious and focused on helping people with substance misuse issues, join us as a Clinical/Counselling Psychologist and help us make a real difference to our communities.

What benefits will I receive?

Of course, we know it's not about the money. But that doesn't mean we don't reward our people for their invaluable work with a benefits package that includes:

  • Excellent training and development
  • A pension plan & annual leave with an option to buy and sell
  • Family/flexible leave, childcare vouchers, season ticket loan, & Bike 2 Work scheme
  • Free financial, legal and practical life advice, online health assessment tools, counselling services, and support from an occupational health and well-being provider

Application end date: 27th August, 2017

We reserve the right to close this advert early if we are able to appoint to the vacancy before the advertised closed date.
