An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a dedicated and compassionate multi-disciplinary team at The University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service (USAIS). USAIS is renowned for providing a regional service for severely and profoundly deaf children, young people and adults across the south of England and the Channel Islands. The service is within the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton. We are looking for a highly motivated Senior Clinical Psychologist to join our wonderful team.

Consultation and advice on patient’s psychological care to the wider multi-disciplinary team, as well as liaison with external agencies is also an important aspect of the work. Although you will predominantly be focused on the child and young people branch of the service, there are opportunities to work across the lifespan. 

You will be a valued and key member of the multi-disciplinary team and have opportunities to shape the Clinical Psychology Service at USAIS. There are also opportunities to teach on courses run at the University and with partner charities and organisations, as well as to utilise your research skills and be involved in audit and service development within USAIS.  You will also have a key role in the USAIS safeguarding team which provides consultation and support to the wider team.  Attendances at conferences and training courses is encouraged and supported for continuing professional development.

You should be an experienced clinical psychologist with experience of working in the field of disability/health issues.  Experience with D/deaf individuals is beneficial but your induction will help you gain experience in this field.
