Join our team as a Clinical Psychologist within our Mental Health Service on the Isle of Man!
Are you looking for an opportunity for career progression and a variety of clinical work with diverse client groups? We currently have exciting opportunities for psychologists to join our friendly community mental health team here on the Isle of Man.

Your responsibilities will include the provision of psychological assessment and therapy to adults with serious mental health problems in a community setting.

You will be someone who thrives in roles that include variety, complexity and challenges alongside opportunities for growth. You will have a passion for working with individuals with serious mental health problems in the community, and all of your interventions and contacts will be underpinned by a focus on personal recovery.
What can this role offer me?
By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.

As of April 1st 2021 smoking will no longer be permitted on our Manx Care sites. For support and advice on abstinence from smoking, please contact Quit4You on 01624 642404 or Quit4You@gov.im
This role gives you the opportunity to develop your skills across a broad range of mental health difficulties.

We actively welcome and support innovation, and will support you to develop initiatives or ideas to further develop our services.
