You couldn’t think of a more fascinating future

Here at GCHQ, we have a clear purpose – we want to help protect the UK. We work against cyber-attacks, terrorism and espionage. So everyone who works here, works towards that goal. But we always do it together, supporting each other every step of the way. We’re proud to collaborate, and even prouder to work with purpose.

Being a GCHQ Clinical Psychologist means taking on a role like no other. It’s about applying your incredible expertise within a national security context, and that makes for fascinating work. What’s more, now is a really exciting time to join us. As our workforce grows, so does the demand to use resources efficiently and effectively. But thanks to your keen focus on how we’re assessing things like vulnerability, resilience and risk, we’ll always rise to the challenge. As you’ll discover, we actively encourage fresh ideas, as well as ingenuity and teamwork. So you can expect to be immersed in an inspiring learning culture that values developing you.

Ideally, you’re an experienced Clinical Psychologist who has already worked as a consultant or equivalent in the NHS. Regardless, you’ll bring substantial mental health know-how, across a variety of scenarios. Strong assessment and report writing skills are essential, as is forensic experience. It’s also important that you have a breadth of experience with adult populations, as well as training or consulting to non-psychologists. The really great thing about this role is that you can do what you’re great at on a part-time basis and to flexible hours. It’s all about finding the right balance that works for you.
