We are a large NHS Mental Health Trust in South East England and are looking for people to help us provide high quality services for the patients, carers and local communities that we serve.
We want patients and staff to recommend our organisation as a place where they would be happy for their friends and family to be treated. You can help us to do this by bringing your skills, experience and commitment to Sussex Partnership.
Sussex Partnership is an equal opportunities employer, with a sincere commitment to our people’s health and emotional wellbeing and as such, we have signed the Time to Change pledge and provide a comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme.
In addition, our workforce is currently under-represented by people from Black and Minority Ethnic and Disabled communities. We welcome applications from people of these communities as we want our workforce to reflect the communities we serve.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has rated our services good, following their most recent inspection, and outstanding in the caring domain.
East Sussex CAMHS have an exciting opportunity for a permanent, part time (0.6wte) Band 7 Clinical Psychology post, based in our Hastings CAMHS Team. You will work clinically in community clinics providing assessment, formulation, intervention and consultation.
You will be part of a strong and friendly multidisciplinary team, receiving high standards of clinical and professional supervision. Depending on areas of expertise and training, a secondary supervision package can be part of your job plan (CBT, IPT, EMDR, DDP, ASD and group work). You will be supported and expected to attend regular local and county wide Psychology meetings and undertake relevant CPD.
CAMHS teams use our CYP-IAPT learning and work collaboratively to 'deliver with and deliver well' supported by our excellent Psychology assistant and intern infrastructure.
Psychologists work across all our ChYPS Care Delivery Service (CDS) which includes adolescent Tier 4, Early Intervention in Psychosis and Perinatal. We value the Psychology and Psychological Therapies workforce and staff wellbeing and resilience is a key priority.
Our clinicians are supported in working with local universities to deliver teaching, supporting research and providing high quality learning contexts for Clinical Psychology Trainees. Our work is supported by our Clinical Academic Group and related communities of interest where we work across disciplines and collaboratively with our service users in supporting innovation, evidenced based practice and practice based evidence. Participation and partnership working with children, young people and families is extremely important in our CAMH Services - our participation work has won awards and national recognition.
Our offer is for a career not just a job, in a team and a Trust committed to delivering the best care possible to those in need. We are a trust with a 2020 vision of achieving outstanding care and treatment you can be confident in. We have a vision that includes becoming the employer of choice and our values and behaviours guide how we do this.
Interviews are scheduled for: 26 September 2019
