Consultant Psychologist – Part Time 22.5 hours per week

Are you interested in overseeing and developing primary and secondary care psychology services for mental health? We are keen to recruit a compassionate and experienced psychologist to join and lead our expanding primary and secondary care psychology and mental health services within the adult prison estate.

CNWL’s Offender Care is led by a highly motivated team with vast experience in healthcare within secure environments. We employ a range of psychologists and psychological therapists with clinical, counselling and forensic trainings. Psychologists work within the mental health services in eleven sites, across prisons, IRCs and secure hospitals, with children and adults, men and women and across the range of security categories. Our psychologists also lead four specialist Offender Personality Disorder (OPD) services and the Sexual Behaviour Service in the youth estate.

This post will assist with the strategic development of our mental health pathways and will lead on our high quality stepped care provision across the prison estate. We want to see someone who will work well with a range of professions, both within the established MDT and also with the wider prison staff, respecting and integrating a range of opinions and approaches to provide the best outcome for our service users. We have a significant team of psychology and therapy staff providing a wide range of therapies (CBT, MBT, EMDR, Schema & Psychodynamic therapy). We are seeking a professional lead that will offer expert clinical supervision and leadership to our team.

Joining a large, forward-thinking Trust will bring successful candidates excellent development opportunities, an exciting career structure, and job satisfaction. Psychologists from across Offender Care come together for professional and clinical development and supervision and continuing professional development is integral to our trauma informed and stepped care model.

This post will be based in Surrey and will attract HCAS.

It is anticipated that interviews will be via video conferencing on 5th or 6th November.
