Job Description

As a consequence of these developments, a unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Clinical/Counselling Psychologist. The successful candidate will work with NHFT’s Consultant Clinical Psychologist in a small but friendly team of Clinical Psychologists, Nurses and other AHP’s, to transform the way in which the Secure Training Centre at Rainsbrook is run. The funding for these post are from a national programme (SECURE STAIRS) which has been specially developed to re-establish this custodial setting into one that is based on psychological principles. The role will largely involve providing consultation, supervision, training, and support for centre staff but will also include some clinical work and research.

Whilst the ideal candidate will have experience in working in forensic settings, with children and young people and in implementing organisational change, we will consider those who do not have all these components but who can demonstrate the required leadership qualities and the transferable skills to enable them to adapt to this unique role.

We welcome informal discussions and visits:

Dr Sarah Major, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, 01788 528 802.

Marco Moretto, Counselling Psychologist 01788 528 800 ext 248.

Dr Clare Holt, Clinical Psychologist 01788 528 800 ext 248
