Following the appointment of a Principal Educational Psychologist, and the recruitment of a team of strong main grade and specialist senior psychologists, Middlesbrough Psychology Service continues its adventure of re-development. We are seeking to recruit as we develop a traded element to our newly forming service and support the local authority at strategic level.

We endeavour to build a vibrant service of enthusiastic psychologists who are committed and passionate about the application of psychology in the service of children, young people and their families. As we shape our service, we work to harness a strong team spirit of togetherness. We value supervision, opportunities for professional and career development, critical thinking and ethicality of service delivery. Main grade and senior post holders will be actively involved in and contribute to the redefining and re-development of the service.

The Psychology Service is part of the SEND and Vulnerable Learners Service. Following a strategic SEND-VL Service review and a local area inspection of SEND, Middlesbrough are implementing some key changes in the support and range of provision available for children, young people and families in our area. Main grade activities will relate to both the statutory functions of the local authority and the development of our traded service. Senior responsibilities would include deputising for the PEP in town wide strategic initiatives and providing leadership and management support within the service.

We welcome applications from senior colleagues looking to build upon an established career, from experienced main grade colleagues who are looking for a new challenge and from individuals qualifying in summer 2018.

We offer unique opportunities to both develop and be part of a strong, supportive team of Psychologists, which is embracing the challenge of navigating a new course with a new consultative framework of service delivery. This really is an exciting time to come and join us.

For informal discussion about our Service delivery and direction, please contact Dr Fiona Alexander, Fiona_alexander@middlesbrough.gov.uk or telephone 01642 201861 / 728365

The above post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. All applicants must be professionally qualified and HCPC registered or be in on a recognised training programme leading to professional registration.

Closing date: Monday 30th April 2018 by 12 midnight
