We have an exciting opportunity for one full time Assistant Psychologist to support the work of the team Clinical Psychologists within our Community Mental Health Team for Older Adults in Mid-Bedfordshire (split between Biggleswade and Houghton Regis). The post is on a 1 year fixed term contract. A significant proportion of the post-holders role will be undertaking neuropsychological assessments under supervision as part of the Memory Assessment Services. Additionally, the successful applicants will support the team Clinical Psychologist in a range of activities such as quality improvement, group work and training as well as completing individual interventions such as the START programme for carers of people with dementia. The role is predominately working within the community but there may be some inpatient working if required.
These posts have a strong clinical component to it. The successful applicants must have excellent communication skills, a strong academic record with excellent IT literacy skills and skills in data collection and evaluation. We are also looking for people who are able to engage positively and sensitively with people with mental health difficulties and dementia as well as family members and carers.
