 Child Clinical / Practitioner Psychologist (Band 8a)

Fixed Term to 31st March 2022

An exciting opportunity has arisen for Band 8a Clinical / Practitioner Psychologists (up to 1.0  wte) to become part of the expanding Gwent Attachment Service. The service goal is to provide support for highly vulnerable children who have experienced complex developmental trauma and disrupted attachment histories. We believe in focusing on early intervention and prevention. Our focus is on creating the environments in which secure attachments can develop and in which young people have the best chance of building resilience and recovering from trauma. A key part of the role will therefore be working with those in the systems around these young people to create a knowledge and understanding of the impact of trauma and attachment difficulties. The service also works to support individuals and agencies to consider how to embed attachment principles into their service planning and delivery, provide timely interventions and contribute to the evidence base for this population. There will be opportunities for the successful candidates to develop skills in each of these service strands.

The successful candidates will join a lively and proactive team of Child Psychologists and Therapists. We meet weekly for professional support and peer supervision, and value a culture of reflective practice and rich continuing professional development. Our team base is both welcoming and supportive, enabling clinicians to hold a strong psychological perspective in the wide range of settings we deliver services across.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing Date: 22nd April 2021
