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.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and well-motivated Clinical Psychologist. We are interested in receiving applications from either newly qualified therapists or therapists with post qualification experience.

 The post can be full or part time and will be based with our Community Assessment and Treatment Service. The post holder will provide a psychological service to people living in the community with a learning disability, as well as a range of presenting problems, such as challenging behaviour and autism spectrum conditions.

** The post holder will be able to progress from Band 7 to band 8a once they demonstrate that they meet the competencies specified for Band 8a. **

The post holder will be professionally supervised by an appropriately experienced senior clinical psychologist and will have the opportunity to be part of an innovative and active group of Psychological professionals. The service has strong links with the psychology department at the University of Hertfordshire in relation to both clinical training and research.  HPFT has a strong commitment to supporting on-going continuing professional development.

Applicants will need to be registered as a practitioner psychologist with Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
