Teesside University is an ambitious and enterprising university for a focused and pragmatic global new generation. Focused on making a real difference to the lives of people and the success of businesses and the economy.

Our corporate strategy sets out our intentions to drive academic ambition and deliver excellence for our students, partners and the communities we serve. It positions Teesside as a high-performing global university anchored in the Tees Valley providing aspiration to our community and learning opportunities for all

We have taken a leading role over a prolonged period in employer engagement, the enhancement of learning and the student experience, impactful research, staff and leadership development, employer workforce development, as well as social, cultural and community enrichment. Through these significant strengths and a commitment to achieving excellence in all areas, Teesside University transforms lives and economies.

The Department of Psychology at Teesside University has two vacancies for HCPC registered Counselling Psychologists, with experience of teaching at HE level, to lead our team and contribute to the design, delivery, assessment and quality assurance of the programmes and modules in the Department of Psychology.

We are looking for applicants who are HCPC Counselling Psychologists with doctoral level qualifications, who can coach and support students and who have the ability to contribute to curriculum design and development. 

The Department of Psychology at Teesside is a growing department with teaching from undergraduate to doctorate level across a range of psychology domains including, health psychology, forensic psychology, counselling psychology and clinical psychology. The Department has submitted to REF UoA4 and we have an ambitious research strategy focused in the Centre for Applied Psychological Science, which has research themes for Cognition and Decision Making, Vulnerable Victims and Offenders in the Criminal Justice System, Health and Well-being and Pain and Long-Term Conditions. Aligning research interest and expertise with these themes is therefore essential and the University and Department have support in place to help develop your research career (e.g. staff development and mentoring schemes).

We are a friendly and collegiate department that values our cohesion as a team and ability to work together to use psychology to have a positive influence on society. We understand that many practitioners wish to remain in practice and therefore we welcome enquiries about flexible working or job share for these two posts. Many of our team work on part-time contracts and we include a mix of practitioners from different psychology professions in the team.  If you wish to apply on a job share basis please state this on your application.

The Tees Valley is an enjoyable place to live – in the heart of the North of England’s coastline and countryside, with easy access to Durham, Newcastle and York. The North Yorkshire Moors and stunning coastline are very close to campus and the local area boasts picturesque villages with nice places to eat and living in the area is some of the least expensive in the country.
