Plus, brilliant benefits and a great work/life balance

Brilliant outcomes through integrated health, housing and care. That’s when it hits home.

This is your chance to be part of something brilliant at Home Group, where clinical interventions work hand in hand with daily support. You’ll be joining us on our exciting journey to become market leaders in New Models of Care. This means we’re not providing your traditional supported housing services but rather trailblazing the way in delivering brilliant long term outcomes for vulnerable people through integrated health, housing and care.

We have a brilliant opportunity for you to join us and work across two of our amazing services in Kirklees, Batley Foyer supporting young people aged 16-24 and Clare House our homelessness service. Many of our customers have complex needs and our service enables people to move on from 24 hour supported living to living independently in the community– how great is that! 

You’ll lead on psychological assessments, formulation and therapy for our customers and provide clinical advice to your colleagues on the day to day support required including interventions, leading individual and group reflective practice sessions which will support the advancement of colleague practice, Psychologically Informed Practice and helping colleagues increase their understanding of mental health to enable brilliant outcomes. 

We want to give you the freedom to help us design this trailblazing service. We are passionate about revolutionising the wider health care agenda through working closely with our NHS and academic colleagues to provide a seamless service with the highest level of patient care and satisfaction. You’ll be able to really make your mark, shaping our services/policies, clinical design as well as delivering specialist training to colleagues across Home Group.

On a day to day basis, you will report to our Senior Client Services Manager and your clinical supervision will be provided by our Clinical Practice team.

You’ll be working alongside our Service Managers and team of Support Coordinators and Workers, ensuring that high quality individualised care is delivered which ensures safety, recovery, wellbeing and maximises independence for our customers.

What’s even more brilliant, we use a digital first approach so there’s no need to work your way through red tape or mounds of paperwork.  We’ll supply you with IT kit which includes a surface pro tablet and smart phone. 

About us

We’re Home Group one of the UK’s biggest providers of high quality housing and care and support services. We’re also one of the largest developers of new homes and providers of houses for affordable rent. It’s an exciting time to join Home Group. We are currently undergoing a significant period of growth and change that will enable us to build more homes, independence and aspirations – the vision that underpins our new five-year strategy. Our ambition to build 10,000 new homes, be market leaders in New Models of Care, and significantly increase our digital capability is in the hands of our brilliant people.

Working flexibly

It’s our unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!  And we really mean this!

About you

You’ll have experience of working with adolescent and adult mental health, offering psychological assessments, consultations and interventions. You’ll hold relevant professional qualifications including HCPC registered practitioner psychologist, BPS, Doctoral Degree or equivalent. You’ll have an eye for detail being able to analyse complex data and make expert judgements. You’ll really impress us with your ability to unleash the potential of others through offering clinical advice, support and training to upskill our support workers.

An Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for this role and will be paid for by us.
