NEW BUSINESS – NEW SERVICES – NEW JOBS IN LINCOLNSHIRE!!

Lincolnshire is leading the way with mental health transformation projects

Do you want to be part of changing mental health for the future? Improving things for the next generation and influencing the future. We have a number of exciting new opportunities for clinical and non-clinical staff.

Excellent, well trained and motivated staff are what make the Trust as successful as we are.

We employ over 2200 staff in a variety of roles and are proud that in the past two years we have been rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England; achieving the second best mental health trust nationally in 2018 staff survey. We firmly believe that the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce and this is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall.

As a Trust we believe that having a diverse workforce and allowing people to be themselves is essential to good employment, we are openly supportive and encourage difference. We have three active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+) and staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE). This has resulted in annual staff conferences and some great national accolades, such as, the Trust being included in the Top 100 organisations in the country within the Stonewall Index.

We are looking for a committed and dynamic Clinical Psychologist to provide psychological provision within the EIP Team. If you work well within a team and are highly motivated to provide excellent care then we would encourage you to apply. This is an opportunity for you to join an enthusiastic and motivated team, working to improve the lives of people who access secondary mental health care.

The EIP team is located within the Adult Community Mental Health Division and our mission is to provide high quality psychological services to adults who live in Lincolnshire. The successful applicant will be providing services for individuals of working age, implementing evidence-based psychological interventions for clients with a range of difficulties. This will include psychological assessment and individual and systemic interventions. This includes work with individuals, families, significant others, and consultation work advising staff of other disciplines on the psychological aspects of casework and interventions. There will be a strong emphasis on providing CBTp formulations and interventions in accordance with the Royal College of Psychiatrists EIP Standards and NICE Guidelines. The post will involve liaison with other professions within EIP, including Mental Health Nurses, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists and Trainee Clinical Psychologists, Support Workers and Peer Support Workers, therefore communication and team-working skills are essential.
