Tempest Resourcing is looking to recruit a highly motivated clinical/ counselling psychologist or psychological therapist to an innovative role in the UK.

This position is suitable for someone with enthusiasm and experience in working with people with complex trauma and multiple needs in a compassionate, trauma-informed, and collaborative way. It is a new role that requires a good grounding in psychological theory and formulation, but also a flexible and creative approach to psychological interventions in community settings. This is an excellent opportunity to engage with the development of new pathways of care for people with complex needs and the successful candidate will benefit from trauma-informed supervision and skills development in complex trauma interventions.

The postholder will provide psychological interventions and will also be responsible for the development of partnerships working with local community groups to promote social connections, community engagement and participation. The successful candidate will contribute to staff training and provide psychological advice (informal, ad hoc, and formal consultation) to other staff, GPs, community workers, carers and people with lived experience of mental distress.

The candidate must be keen to embrace the privileges of working in a diverse borough, have experience of working with people with complex mental health difficulties and from a range of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds as well as working in partnership with staff teams and community organisations to deliver psychologically informed care.

We aim to develop and deliver our services through co-production with people with lived experience. The successful candidate will be closely involved with both the Department of Adult Mental Health Psychology and local Primary Care Networks under whose governance they will experience continuing professional development.
