Assistant Psychologist - Children's Complex Care
Full time, permanent, to start as soon as possible
Salary £18,000-£20,000
Interviews will be held on 30th April near Exeter.

Cambian Group, the UK’s largest provider of specialist services in children’s residential care, education, mental health rehabilitation and learning disabilities, is looking for a dedicated, caring individual to join the company as an Assistant Psychologist. The post will require someone with previous experience of working in CAMHS settings preferably with experience of working with children who are Looked After.

We offer excellent training and career progression opportunities as well as a variety of staff benefits.

Cambian Children's Complex Care Service

Cambian Complex Care Services provide a range of services for children and young people who have experienced significant trauma and/or adverse life events. Our residential homes are supported by a multi-disciplinary team and the young people we care for present with a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties as a result of their experiences. Our service draws on a range of therapeutic models when conceptualising the presenting difficulties of young people in order to offer the best individual intervention.

Job Role

We are seeking academically strong candidates to support and enhance the psychological care of children and young people within Cambian Healthcare by assisting qualified psychologists in the delivery and evaluation of evidence based interventions that meet Cambian Healthcare objectives, national strategic and policy guidelines, commissioner requirements and user and carer needs and expectations. The role involves the administration, scoring and report writing of psychometric assessments, standardised risk assessments, clinical formulation, support / consultation to staff and individual and group interventions. The role will require extensive travel across the region.

Full induction training is given. You will also learn from some of the most dedicated and inspirational people in our profession and just like our young people and Service Users, you will be learning all the time through our on-going mentoring and support. Clinical supervision is an important part of development and additional training will be supported.

We've had surprisingly little interest in this post. Although we would prefer candidates with previous experience of working in CAMHS/with young people, we are willing to consider candidates with other transferrable skills, so if that stipulation was putting you off, please do still consider applying. I would like to remind people that this is closing tomorrow at 5pm, we will be letting shortlisted candidates know on Monday, and we are interviewing on Thursday.
