Job description


An exciting opportunity has arisen to develop a new clinical psychology post dedicated to supporting people experiencing street homelessness and substance misuse problems.

The Rough Sleeper Drug and Alcohol Treatment Team (RSDATT) is a new service based within the Nottingham Recovery Network. RSDATT is working with people who need drug and alcohol treatment who are either rough sleeping or at risk of none engagement or dropping out of treatment due to insecure accommodation.

We have a multi-disciplinary team consisting of clinical specialist substance misuse workers and peer mentors, with specialist provision to target excluded groups including women and people from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. This is a new post recruited as part of on-going expansion that will also include the recruitment of a qualified social worker to take on Care Act assessment work.

Based on learning generated from successful local and national programmes working with people facing severe multiple disadvantages, RSDATT is implementing flexible, person centred approaches in order to engage and support people who have previously found themselves excluded from, or unable to engage with traditional methods of service delivery. There is therefore a need for the post holder to be able to adapt to different and flexible working methods in order to successfully engage people in treatment.

The post will include direct work to build relationships with service users and support them towards their goals, as well as indirect work to promote psychologically informed provision across the service and other relevant agencies.

You will have autonomy to develop the post in collaboration with other stakeholders, to best meet the needs of service users. It is expected that you will use flexible approaches to build trust with individuals who have often been let down by services.

You will liaise with a wide range of agencies (housing, health, criminal justice, social care etc.) to develop coordinated responses to the needs of individuals. You will be encouraged to innovate and supported to undertake and disseminate research to develop practice-based evidence.

You will join established clinical psychologists working across other areas of Framework to develop psychologically informed environments and trauma informed care. You will be well supported through regular supervision and opportunities for continuing professional development.

We welcome applications for part-time / job-share and from any newly qualified applicants.

Interviews will be held on Monday 27th June 2022
