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.

Psychologists are valued members of the service and offer specialist assessment; evidence based interventions; psychological formulation and team consultation. The successful candidates will have skills and interests in supporting professional colleagues to develop and use psychological thinking in their work and in contributing psychological perspectives to service users’ care plans.
