Job Description

Your role is key in the development and articulation of best practice in psychology, and more specifically The RESET model, across various services and organisations.

We are looking for a candidate that is registered as a Practitioner Psychologist by the HCPC and has post qualification training in supervision of other psychologists. You will wish to develop and maintain your reflexive and reflective skills, taking part in regular professional supervision and maintaining an active engagement with current developments in the field of clinical psychology and related disciplines.

We don’t expect you to be the finished article, you will make mistakes like everyone does. All we ask is that you learn and develop from discovering what works and what doesn’t, and you are always open and honest with us. Full training will be given to guide your development, and we are here to hold your hand as you progress your career.

Undertake the role of Practitioner’s Psychologist for designated NHS service(s) and/or private organisations as agreed with the Senior Management Team.

To formulate, implement and deliver psychological interventions using the RESET approach, an integrative model to care, and other psychological models, when necessary, based upon an appropriate conceptual framework of the individual’s problems.

This includes assessment, formulation, intervention (group and/or one to one) and evaluation in line with the RESET approach, the patient’s presentation and needs.

This role is primarily based in Birmingham and the local area, although occasional travel may be required further afield. We will give you plenty of prior notice of any travel requirements and full expenses will be paid.

Communicate effectively with patients/ service users, liaise with partners, and supervise other colleagues.

You will be at the heart of the communication and act as liaison between team members, partners, and service users. A key part of your role is in communicating and receiving complex, sensitive, or contentious information in a skilled and sensitive manner.

You will provide specialist psychological advice, guidance and consultation to other professionals contributing directly to individuals’ formulation, and intervention plans. This includes delivering reflective practice and clinical supervision to other practitioners after receiving adequate training.

Contribute to the development, evaluation, and monitoring of the company’s operational policies and services through the deployment of professional skills in research, service evaluation, and audit.

At RESET Health, we aim to provide expert and innovative services, based on the latest research in mental health and physical wellbeing. Therefore, it is crucial that we stay up to date with our knowledge and provide an evidence-based approach.

To support this, you will manage research and audit projects, including literature reviews and service evaluations with colleagues to support evidence-based practice and develop the RESET approach.

Take responsibility for developing and managing a dynamic and energetic team, to maintain good working practice and improve service quality.

You will relate effectively to professional colleagues and build and maintain effective working relationships within all levels of the organisation, and quickly be seen as a leader and expert in your field. You will provide management/ clinical supervision, as appropriate, to assistant and graduate psychologists, within the framework of the team/service’s policies and procedures.

For the less experienced in management, this is your opportunity to grow! We understand how difficult it is to step out of our comfort zone. So, our structured induction, regular reflective practice, clinical supervision, and training approach will ensure you have the support you need, when you need it.

Provide advice, supervision, and training to colleagues and partners.

You will prepare and deliver training using a variety of multimedia materials suitable for presentations within public, professional, and academic settings.

You will soon become one of the leaders and experts in Holistic and Integrative Psychology, and therefore you will be in high demand to teach, train, and shape future generations of psychologists and clinical employees.

Any hints of imposter syndrome?

Not to worry, we have the knowledge and structure to teach and guide you. All our practitioners are encouraged to progress and master skills, particularly in areas where they are keen to develop. Whether you have recently graduated or have experience, you will be supported to continuously learn and develop.

It’s not all about work though, we value the importance of rest and financial security. That is why you will be entitled to 22 days holiday per year of annual leave (pro-rata), plus 8 statutory public/bank holidays (pro-rata). Stick with us and after each year of continuous service, your annual leave entitlement increases to 1 extra day per year, up to 25 days annual leave in total.

You may not be in it for the money, but future financial peace of mind is important. To support this, you will be entitled to enrol in a pension scheme where we contribute 3% of your salary per month. Your contribution is a minimum of 5%, which can be increased at your discretion.
