We welcome applications from psychologists who have a strong track record of supporting others and working at a strategic level.

Maingrade role

You will have experience in delivering consultation, assessment and interventions to meet the needs of vulnerable children and young people. You will have an excellent understanding of SEND and Equalities legislation and a sound knowledge of children's psychological development, together with skills and experience in delivery of psychological interventions.
