A career in the Psychological Assessment & Therapy Service on Jersey makes for a very refreshing change. With an exceptional work/life balance and stunning surroundings at every turn, our people enjoy a level of career satisfaction that’s hard to imagine elsewhere. The States of Jersey Health & Social Services Department is independent – we’re not part of the NHS, so we’re free to do things differently. We strive to offer a seamless integrated service, putting the patient at the heart of everything we do. And in the process, we encourage our staff to spend more time doing the job they love.

Joining Jersey Talking Therapies, you’ll be part of a team of psychological wellbeing practitioners, psychological therapists, counsellors and psychologists. They all share your passion for helping people with anxiety and depression to achieve a level of recovery which improves their overall wellbeing and daily life. 

As a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, you will provide high volume, low intensity psychological therapy. Clients with mild to moderate anxiety, depression and issues with alcohol use will rely on your expertise in delivering cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) based self management interventions. This will include psycho-educational courses and CCBT (computerised CBT). Exploring areas where each person wants to see change, you will support them to manage their own recovery.

A skilled and professionally qualified practitioner, you’ll bring to the role relevant experience of working in an IAPT service and/or delivering high volume, low intensity evidence based CBT interventions. You have a track record of using a range of approaches such as face to face, telephone and group work. Your enthusiasm, knowledge, skills and work ethic equip you to meet targets and facilitate real change.

Our people mean so much to us. With support from day one, you’ll have everything you need to make a successful move. We’ll provide you with a generous relocation package (£8,000), support with a deposit and first month’s rent through our Deposit Advance Scheme. That’s just the start of your journey. You’ll benefit from continual training and development opportunities and the freedom to really rediscover why you love what you do, and who you are. On Jersey, you can change many lives - including your own.
