Help create a psychological service that will set the standard in policing

The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) is an armed police service that’s dedicated to the nuclear industry. Our vision is to be recognised as a provider of a world-class service for the protection of nuclear material and facilities. Given the critical nature of our work, it’s vital that we recruit skilled and committed professionals to our high-performing team. As a Specialist Clinical Psychologist, you’ll help us create a first-class psychological service for our unique organisation.

You’ll be part of our multi-disciplinary in-house Occupational Health and Wellbeing team. Here, you’ll develop mental health support for our people and identify anyone who is unsuitable to be employed in a safety-critical role. That means creating psychological assessments for employees at every stage of their careers. You’ll also manage Specific Learning Difficulty policy, support dyslexia workplace assessors, develop mental health awareness campaigns and evaluate the fitness of applicants for roles. Join us and your work could make all the difference. With your help, we can look after our workforce better and provide assurance to stakeholders.  

This is a chance to work with a forward-looking force that’s keen to set the standard for the sector. Ideally, you’ve worked in a similar area and know how to lead psychological services. A qualified Clinical Psychologist (D.Clin Psychol. Or equivalent), you’ll be eligible for Chartered Clinical Psychologist Status in the British Psychological Society. You have experience in training or supervision, plus advanced skills in assessment – especially evaluations to determine specific learning difficulties. Organised, articulate and trained in at least one psychological therapy, you’ll thrive on the challenge of supporting a crucial police service.
