  • Ensuring an assessment determines the most appropriate pathway of care and support for the eligible employee
  • Working at an individual level with differing models of service delivery including face-to-face, telephone or video consultation depending on employee preference and need

Who we’re looking for?

  • Professional doctorate qualification in Clinical Psychology as accredited by the British Psychological Society
  • Health and Care Professions Council registration as a qualified Chartered Clinical Psychologist
  • General adult mental health experience
  • CBT qualification and/or relevant experience or training and accreditation in one or more additional specialised areas of psychological relevance

  • Experience of clinical management
  • Ability to present to groups and deliver training workshops
