Are you looking to join a creative, friendly and supportive multi-disciplinary team? Do you want to deliver a high quality service to children and young people in Wandsworth? Are you interested in supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing?

We are seeking to expand the Schools and Community Psychology Service given opportunities that have arisen with Wandsworth’s new ASD Service and Mental Health Trailblazer Teams. We are looking to recruit 4 Educational Psychologists, 3 on 2 year fixed term contracts and one on a permanent basis.

As a member of the service you will have a varied professional workload, including opportunities for collaborative working, training and project work. We offer good induction, regular supervision in multiple forms (individual, peer and Reflecting Team) and ongoing professional development. We have close relationships with EP training institutions through our tutor links and value the contribution of trainees to our service.

We are seeking applicants who value a team approach, are committed to consultation as a model of service delivery and who can work sensitively and pro-actively with clients, applying psychology at all levels to promote social and educational inclusion. Creative thinking, excellent communication and interpersonal skills are essential.

We are interested in hearing from qualified educational psychologists and educational psychologists in their final year of training who may be interested in taking up post in September 2020.

In return, we can offer you working arrangements that will enhance your work-life balance. These include home working (dependent on service need) and a generous holiday allowance of 31 days plus bank holidays.

In addition, we offer a range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government contributory pension scheme, childcare vouchers, new technology scheme, interest-free loans on annual travel cards, discounts at many leisure activities, restaurants, shops, and other establishments. A wide range of developmental opportunities are also offered.

Richmond and Wandsworth are currently reviewing our pay, reward and benefits framework, in partnership with Trade Union colleagues. We are developing different options that make sure we have a fair and transparent system in place.
