OVERVIEW OF THE ROLE
As a Clinical Psychologist within the Helen Bamber Foundation, you will be responsible for supporting the Director of Therapy and Clinical Lead in providing a comprehensive range of therapeutic interventions to clients of the Helen Bamber Foundation.
This role will include delivery of highly specialised psychological assessments for both medico-legal and clinical purposes, provision of appropriate evidence-based therapies, delivery of clinical supervision to staff from non-clinical backgrounds who nonetheless have significant client contact, and supervision of assistant and trainee clinical psychologists on final year specialist placements. The role will include input into policy, research and fundraising and delivery of consultancy and training.
We are looking for someone who is committed to working therapeutically with individuals who have experienced human rights abuses and who have developed trauma spectrum disorders as a result. In addition to proven experience in working therapeutically with this client group, the candidate will have a passion for human rights work beyond the individual client work, and a desire to contribute to effecting change at a policy level. This role requires the ability to react and respond creatively and appropriately to the needs of the charity.
We particularly encourage applications from underrepresented groups in Clinical Psychology (such as people with disabilities, those from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds or those who have lived experience similar to that of the clients we support).
Please note that the successful candidates will be offered the role subject to suitable references and a DBS check. This role will require disclosure of both the adult and child barring lists. If appointed, you will be required to give your consent to HBF to receive regular updates on your criminal records status and to disclose any relevant convictions incurred during your time with us.
For any queries, please call 0203 058 2020 and ask to speak to Dr Christina Curry or Dr Kemi Komolafe via (email@example.com).
