Job Description We're a large NHS Mental Health Trust in South East England. We're looking for people to help us provide high quality services for the patients, carers and local communities we serve. We want patients and staff to recommend our organisation as a place where they would be happy for their friends and family to be treated. You can help us do this by bringing your skills, experience and commitment to Sussex Partnership. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a permanent, 0.6WTE part time post within the East Sussex Community Learning Disability Service.

The successful applicant will join a team which includes an 8b clinical psychologist, a specialist counsellor and a behavioural practitioner. We are actively working with commissioners to ensure delivery of the Transforming Care agenda and we have secured funding for a number of workforce development projects to better meet the needs of our local population and work closely with commissioners to bring people back into the local area. We are also part of a number of local initiatives to build service competency and quality in conjunction with partner organisations and the post holder will take an active role in this work. We will also expect the post holder to take a key role in the delivery of local clinical pathways for people accessing our services and to work proactively with other care groups to ensure people with a learning disability get access to the services they need. We are keen to support and develop people's clinical skills in a number of therapeutic modalities including behavioral support, systemic approaches and trauma informed interventions.
