Permanent, Full Time (37.5 hpw) plus On Call
Salary £50,000 - £60,000 per annum (depending on skills and experience) plus mileage for travel
Home based but covering the South region (currently including Kent, Birmingham, Swindon and Hertfordshire).
Brilliant outcomes through integrated health, housing and care. That’s when it hits home.
Be part of something brilliant at Home Group, where clinical interventions work hand in hand with daily care and support. We’re delivering brilliant long-term outcomes for people who have complex support needs through integrating health, housing and care.
As Regional Clinician in our Transforming Care team, you’ll provide a specialist Psychology service to our customers across the region as well as equipping our operational teams to deliver support that enables our customers to live a fulfilling life in their own home within the local community. Together, you’ll be supporting our customers who have complex support needs, including learning disabilities, autism, a diagnosis of mental health conditions, personality disorders, communication differences, alongside ongoing physical health conditions. They may also have a forensic background and support needs related to their behaviour.
This is an exciting, brand new role which you’ll really get to shape and make your own! As our Psychology specialist you’ll be leading on psychological assessments, formulations and interventions, working collaboratively with our customers, their families, clinical and operational colleagues across the region. You’ll use your experience and brilliant skills to ensure all practice is psychologically informed and person led, providing clinical advice to your colleagues on the day to day support required and maintaining a healthy psychological environment. You’ll advance colleagues’ knowledge and practice on psychological care and wellbeing, enabling support to be delivered which ensures safety, promotes recovery, and maximises independence. You’ll also contribute to the development and embedding of new interventions and practices aligned to our LIFE support practice model (Living Independently and Feeling Enabled).
You’ll report to Karen, our Head of Transforming Care who has a wealth of experience from her clinical and operational roles working across the NHS, Social Care and private sector. She’s also a dual registered nurse and qualified in Applied Behavioural Analysis. Outside of work you’ll find her keeping fit in dance aerobics classes, singing in a choir (which she’s just recently joined) and discussing the latest book as a member of a book club (we wonder what they’re reading at the moment?). Your clinical supervision will be provided by Kathryn, our Psychology lead, who is a registered Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist. Kathryn is passionate about the development of our psychologically and trauma informed approach as well as ensuring that well-being is at the heart of what we do so our customers are enabled to have the best quality of life possible. Outside of work, you’ll most likely find her cheering her son on from the side-lines on the local football field, walking her boxer dog Jasper in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside or catching up with friends and family over a delicious meal.
