Job Description

Parents And Children Together - PACT - has been building and strengthening families since 1911.

PACT helps hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption and award-winning therapeutic support and inspirational community projects across London and the south of England.

PACT is one of the UK’s leading independent adoption agencies, placing children with secure and loving families and supporting them with specialist therapeutic support. Our award-winning FACTS service includes Theraplay, creative art therapy and life story work which help children to overcome difficulties in childhood, adolescence and early adulthood which have resulted from early trauma and neglect.

We are seeking qualified and experienced self-employed Clinical Psychologists based in London, Berkshire and Sussex (or surrounding Counties) to join our therapeutic support services for children and their carers/parents.  It is important that you have previous experience in working with adoptive children and families.

This is a great opportunity to work with a service rated as outstanding with Ofsted to undertake assessments of therapeutic need for applications to the Adoption Support Fund, and direct therapeutic support with our adoptive families.

Pay is on an hourly rate depending on experience and competitive travel expenses are also paid.
