About us

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

About the role

We are a dynamic, innovative and values-led organisation, with the ability to develop our services to meet the needs of the people we work with. As part of our commitment to end the homelessness of more people using our direct services, including people with complex needs, we are seeking a Clinical Psychologist to work across our Housing First service in London (0.6) and our London Skylight service (0.4).

About you
We are looking for someone who is community focused and driven by shared values. You will look forward to engaging with individuals who have very difficult lives and have struggled to access traditional forms of support. You will have the skills to offer creative and flexible individual work, alongside consultation to core groups, multi-agency networks and the wider system. You will be excited about joining a local team of people who share a commitment to end homelessness and a national team of 11 clinical psychologists led by a lead psychologist. 

Benefits
As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:

  • Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
  • Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
  • 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
