This position offers a unique and exciting opportunity to work with a leading autism charity based in central Cornwall.

During this phase of development for the organisation, we are looking for a qualified Clinical Psychologist with appropriate experience of providing psychological support, assessment and interventions for autistic people and children. This will be a challenging opportunity for an individual with a clinical psychology background and the ability to develop their corporate and strategic skills base with a highly specialised provider in autism services.

The successful candidate will provide psychological consultation, lead reflective practice sessions and collaborative care planning, and deliver formal and informal specialist training to staff teams and individuals. The applicant will be part of a well-established in-house Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) team consisting of behaviour specialists who are already delivering these approaches across the organisation.

You must have a proven track record in working with autistic people and children, learning disabilities and neurodiversity. A working knowledge of positive behaviour support approaches including active support is essential. The successful candidate will join the senior management team as well as working with our external partners and our children’s and educational services.

This would be a great opportunity for an experienced Band 7 to progress into a role with more responsibility, or for an experienced Band 8a to extend their experience in this field.

We require the individual to work closely with the homes’ Registered Managers, the Head of Operations, and each autistic person’s keyworker to provide positive outcomes for the people we support.

Essential Criteria:

In addition to a rewarding career, Spectrum offers a range of staff benefits, including competitive holiday entitlement, workplace pension, enrolment on to a private healthcare scheme.
