Clinical Psychologist – Adults & Older Children with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (part-time, 18.75 hours)
Salary: £45,000 to £55,000 pro rata (dependent upon experience)
Contract: 2 years fixed term
A new and unique job opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Psychologist to deliver a specialist psychological service for adults and older children (age 16 years upwards) with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) and the professionals, employers and carers who support them.
Including assessment and post-diagnostic interventions, a key focus of the role will be on delivering and evaluating a modular psychological treatment plan with adults with autistic spectrum conditions. The post-holder will work across locations in the Hampshire area so a car driver is essential.
Psychology Chartered, an established and reputable independent provider based in Havant, Hampshire, will offer professional supervision and support whilst clinical supervision will be delivered by a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience of ASC who has designed this innovative, modular treatment approach.
Experience and a demonstrable clinical interest in clients with autistic spectrum conditions is necessary although equally important, the post-holder will be dynamic, passionate and fit in to our small team. Funding will be provided for training in formal diagnostic assessment (e.g. DISCO, ADI) as necessary and opportunities for including work with younger children may also be possible as the role develops. Opportunities for the further development and research of formal assessment instruments will also form part of the role.
It is anticipated that this post will be extended beyond the 2-year period. Opportunities may also be available to create a full-time/more substantive post working within our established adult neurorehabilitation service.
For further information and informal discussion please contact Dr Richard Maddicks, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist on 02392 377399.
