Permanent – Part Time (30 hours)
£39,784 per annum
Here at Serco we’re looking for a Senior Forensic Psychologist to join us working part time over 4 or 5 days at HMP Doncaster, a category B local resettlement prison situated in South Yorkshire, housing a male population of up to 1145 individuals, approximately 290 of whom are young adults aged 18-25.
This post will suit someone who has a strong interest in supporting trainees in working alongside prisoners who present with a range of complex needs, including mental illness, personality disorders, cognitive deficits, self-harming behaviours and significant offending histories.
The individual will be a positive culture carrier, working effectively and supportively within teams, inspiring and promoting effective change to successfully deliver on the following accountabilities:
What you’ll need to do the role
First and foremost, you will have Chartered status with the British Psychological Society and Registered as a Forensic Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council and be on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAAPS) with the BPS.
You will possess good awareness and knowledge of the Offender Personality Disorder pathway and the experience and ability to make good clinical formulations of offenders with complex needs. You will have experience in the completion of parole reports and carrying out assessments such as WAIS-IV, HCR-20, PCL-R, IPDE and SARA, to support Trainees in their practice. You’ll also be able to work in a multi-disciplinary way and bring a collaborative approach to your work with your team and with the prisoners.
For further information or for an informal discussion, please contact Vikki Bleanch – Head of Psychological Services at HMP Doncaster at email@example.com or alternatively call 01302 760870 ext 130
Meaningful and vital work – Using specialist behavioural analysis you’ll contribute to the reintegration of ex-offenders back into society, helping them to address the factors that influence offending behaviour.
A world of opportunity – With six prisons across the UK and a breadth of roles, you’ll be wholeheartedly supported with development and career progression. We actively fund psychologists towards chartered and/or registered status and with ongoing CPD activities and look to promote from within.
Great people – You’ll become an integral member of a well-defined and supportive team, who believe passionately in the value of our work. We promote an empathic and therapeutic approach, respecting individual differences and promoting self-efficacy.
