We are delighted to be able to offer an opportunity for a clinical psychologist with a passion for working with families whose children have additional needs to join our small team of clinical psychologists employed by the Leeds Community Healthcare. The post is full time and permanent.
The team consists of 5 clinical psychologists, led by a Principal Clinical Psychologist and supported by a Senior Clinical Psychologist. We work into Integrated services for Children with Additional Needs (ICAN) across Leeds, based in 3 Hubs alongside community Pediatricians, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Specialist Health Visitors. The successful candidate will work in a multi-disciplinary team (MDT), providing assessment and intervention for pre-school children referred for Autism Assessments, including the delivery of group-based parent intervention. There are also opportunities to work with families whose children have significant developmental delay but are not on the autistic spectrum. The successful candidate will be encouraged to gain experience working in areas of service development and supervise other members of the MDT or take Psychologists in clinical training, if suitably experienced.
We encourage attendance at the bi-monthly clinical psychology meetings to liaise with clinical psychologists working in other services, particularly Community CAMHS, Infant Mental Health, Intensive Positive Behaviour Support and LAC. We work most closely with CAMHS staff who specialise in Learning Disability, including offering joint training.
Please note that due to the nature of this role, the successful candidate will need to be able to travel independently across the area and have access to a suitable vehicle for business purposes. If necessary, adjustments can be considered in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
Candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Helen Edmunds, Principal Clinical Psychologist (07930287077) or Danielle Ambler, Senior Clinical Psychologist (07960 727163) for further discussion as part of their application.
The successful candidate will ideally have experience of working with children and young people with learning disabilities, neurodevelopmental conditions, specifically Autism, and complex needs, or if newly qualified demonstrate a clear interest in this area of work from placements and pre-training clinical posts. They will be passionate about meeting the needs of vulnerable children with complex presentations and will have experience in use of outcome measures and service evaluation.
We are delighted to announce that we have been rated as a “Good” organisation by CQC and our Adults Services were rated ‘Outstanding’ for caring.
