Job Description

Location: Stockton Hall, The Village, Stockton-on-the-Forest, York, YO32 9UN

Salary: From £32,000 depending on experience

Please note all roles are open to Full and/or Part Time hours.

Priory Healthcare and Partnerships in Care is one of the UK’s leading providers of independent specialist secure and step-down care across the UK.

At Stockton Hall, we are well-known for producing positive clinical outcomes for highly complex patients. We provide a medium secure care setting in which patients access a broad range of therapeutic interventions including one-to-one and group-based psychological treatment.

Our service has produced excellent recovery results for patients, maximising their opportunity to progress to conditions of lower security as safely and efficiently as possible.

If you are looking to join a dynamic, well-established Psychology Department within a successful and respected hospital, and wish to take your next meaningful steps within your psychology career, then we have an opportunity for you.

We are currently looking to add to our team of Forensic and Clinical Psychologists and would like to hear from enthusiastic and innovative individuals who have something to offer.

All roles within the Psychology Department involve working with complex patients who present with a range of mental disorders.

You will be involved in both assessment and treatment, including the use of structured risk assessment measures and one-to-one and group-based interventions relating to needs such as sexual and violent offending, fire-setting, problem solving, substance misuse and anger management.

Current approaches used within individual therapy include CBT, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Cognitive Analytical Therapy.

As part of a multi-disciplinary team, Qualified Psychologists will take a lead role in the development, delivery and evaluation of evidence-based interventions, in order to comply with best-practice principles.

Your role will also incorporate staff training, staff support, management of programmes, and supervision of members of staff including colleagues from within the Psychology Department.

Successful applicants for a Qualified Psychologist position will have full registration as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Whilst post-qualification experience is advantageous, applications are also invited from newly qualified Psychologists.

In either case, you will have the ability to apply psychological knowledge to a secure psychiatric setting, will be able to adopt a systematic approach and to respond flexibly to both the treatment requirements of mentally disordered individuals and the complexities associated with organisational settings.

For further information please contact Ian Wootton, Head of Psychology, or Katy Baigrie, Consultant Forensic and Clinical Psychologist, on 01904 400500.
