We are excited to be offering a permanent, 0.6wte 8a Senior Clinical Psychology post, for suitably qualified, skilled and experienced applicants, in the CAMHS team covering Gwynedd and Anglesey.

We would also welcome applications from suitably qualified Clinical Psychologists looking to progress to a Senior Clinical Psychologist role.

This is likely to be a period of between 6 months and 2 years for completion depending on current skills and experience. Promotion to 8a post would happen on successful completion of the plan.

The successful candidate will provide a service to children and young people (0-18 years old), and their families, where the young person has severe mental health difficulties. The post holder will conduct assessments, develop working formulations, and will offer appropriate interventions to the young person and their family. They will work closely with members of the multi-disciplinary team, and will offer consultation and supervision to their colleagues as appropriate. They would be expected to take opportunities to display leadership in relation to service improvement initiatives, and would also be supported in conducting appropriate audits and research. There will also be an expectation to be involved in the teaching and supervision of trainees on the North Wales Clinical Psychology programme.

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