We have an exciting new opportunity to join our team at Senior Clinical Psychologist level working into our Occupational Health and Wellbeing Service. We are looking for a person who has already established themselves and gained relevant experience, particularly in adult mental health settings,  following an entry grade role in the profession.

This is a permanent Band 8A post working in a staff support role within Occupational Health and Wellbeing with support from colleagues in the Psychological Wellbeing Team. 

We are looking for a Clinical Psychologist who has previous experience of, and a strong interest in,  assessing and providing therapy to adults suffering from  common mental health presentations that may vary considerably in terms of their severity and complexity. We would like to interview people who will be comfortable working independently delivering interventions both to individual clients and also to  groups including delivering group therapy, teaching, training and workshops to staff in the organisation.  We value recruiting Clinical Psychologists who have additional training in cognitive behavioural therapy and at least one other therapeutic modality.     You will be able to provide both direct  input to increase individual staff member's  well-being, and also to contribute to wider organisational strategies and agendas to improve the overall health and wellbeing of staff at all levels of the organisation. 

We also value your ability to communicate psychological thinking effectively to other colleagues associated with the occupational Health MDT and the wider organisation. 

The successful candidates will be joining a supportive Occupational Health and Wellbeing Service serving   York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Can you bring your enthusiasm and skills to improve the psychological wellbeing of the hardworking staff in our Trust?

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
