Before your application can be considered please take part on our online values questionnaire, which you can find below. When you have finished you will be sent a 'completion code' by email, which will be valid for 6 months and required to submit your application form.

Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust is looking for enthusiastic and motivated QUALIFIED Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) to join our Health in Mind IAPT Service covering the Colchester and Tendring areas.

You will be invited to work with a dynamic and innovative Team, comprising Assistant Psychologists, Trainee Therapists, Qualified Therapists and Mental Health support workers.  We are also supported by our efficient Administrative Team and work in collaboration with Mind, who provide STaR workers and counsellors to support our service.

As a PWP, you will be offered the opportunity to work within areas that enthuse you; whether these include providing individualised guided self-help, a variety of group interventions, working closely with High Intensity Therapists and online provision. As well as traditional treatments for anxiety disorders and depression, the Service also provides  long term condition pathways, involving co-location opportunities with colleagues from a variety of physical health settings, and strong, sustained links with Carer and Older Adult populations.

PWPs have the opportunity to undertake projects to support flexible patient care, such as delivering step 2 courses and are encouraged to champion their own specific areas of interest

The Service uses telephone, face-to-face and also WebEx methods of communication to support patients to access and engage with treatment.  Clinics can be held at local bases or within GP surgeries/community venues, affording flexibility for both clinician and patient.

In addition to line management, you will be supported in your role through clinical supervision - weekly individual case management supervision, and a fortnightly clinical skills supervision group.

You will join an enthusiastic and hardworking team to meet specified targets to deliver a high quality Primary Care Mental Health Service to the local population. The role will involve delivering high volume, low intensity interventions within a stepped care model. We are an innovative team, who encourage people to develop new skills, expand their existing skill sets, and learn from experts.

A full internal CPD programme is on offer to all our staff, which runs throughout the year. See job description and person specification for details.
