Brilliant outcomes through integrated health, housing and care. That’s when it hits home.

Be part of something brilliant at Home Group, where clinical interventions work hand in hand with daily care and support.  We’re delivering brilliant long-term outcomes for people who have complex support needs through integrating health, housing and care.  

As Regional Clinician in our Transforming Care team, you’ll provide a specialist psychology service to our customers across the North region equipping our frontline operational teams to deliver support that enables our customers to live a fulfilling life in their own home within the local community.  You’ll be supporting our customers who have complex support needs, including learning disabilities, autism, a diagnosis of mental health conditions, personality disorders, communication differences, alongside ongoing physical health conditions. They may also have a forensic background and support needs related to their behaviour.   

This is an exciting, brand new role which you’ll really get to shape and make your own!  As our Psychology specialist you’ll be leading on psychological assessments, formulations and interventions, working collaboratively with our customers, their families, clinical and operational colleagues across the region.  You’ll use your experience and brilliant skills to ensure all practice is psychologically informed and person led, providing clinical advice to your colleagues on the day to day support required and maintaining a healthy psychological environment.  You’ll advance colleagues’ knowledge and practice on psychological care and wellbeing, enabling support to be delivered which ensures safety, promotes recovery, and maximises independence.  You’ll also contribute to the development and embedding of new interventions and practices aligned to our LIFE support practice model (Living Independently and Feeling Enabled).

Where you’ll work

You’ll be supporting our customers from their own homes, currently within our Leeds Women’s Trauma Informed service, with future plans to work with more customers across the North region.  You can be based from home, but there is the requirement for frequent travel to support our customers and colleagues and to work in more locations as we grow. 

You’ll be required to participate in our on call rota for clinical escalations only over the phone.

A bit about you

It goes without saying that you’ll be an experienced Psychologist, holding relevant professional qualifications; HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist, BPS, Doctoral Degree or equivalent.  You’ll have experience of working with a wide variety of customers across the full range of clinical severity, including some experience of working with customers who have complex support needs.  You’ll have a brilliant background in providing clinical supervision and unleashing the potential of colleagues through your clinical advice, support and training.  You’ll have a current driving licence and access to a vehicle for work.  We’ll pay for your mileage.

An Enhanced Disclosure Check will be required for this role and the costs of this will be met by us.
