Do you enjoy building relationships with schools, families and young people?
Do you value autonomy within a strongly supportive team?
Are you passionate about psychology?
If so, working with Applied Psychologies could be for you!
We're looking for an Educational Psychologist to join our team starting September 2020 in Hull.
We are looking for a full time EP to work with us in Hull and surrounding areas. We are also willing to consider part or term time working for the right candidate.
You will play a key role in our Hull team, delivering EP services to a number of schools in the area. Those schools will be yours and you will have the opportunity to build strong relationships and get to understand their needs. You will decide how best to use your time and skills to give your schools the best service, with the support of our experienced team as and when needed. The work you do is limited only by your imagination!
With no statutory work, you can be more creative, for example, offering systemic work (e.g. Appreciative Inquiry) across schools and trusts, whole class interventions, staff supervision and training. Our assess-plan-do-review model for individual casework also offers the opportunity to design and implement collaborative interventions with schools and families and evaluate impact in the longer-term.
The successful candidate can expect:
highly competitive rates of pay and mileage allowance
generous annual leave entitlement
generous yearly CPD budget
flexible working across seven days
a highly supportive team with daily contact via our WhatsApp peer Supervision Group
a strong emphasis on individual and group supervision
a consistent patch of designated schools
access to our wide range of shared resources which includes assessment, training, intervention and research materials
Most of all, we encourage creativity and opportunities to develop your areas of psychological interest. We want you to love being an EP and love working for us!
The Hull Team:
Having worked in Hull for over seven years we now work with over 50 schools across the city and have built good relationships with schools, trusts and local services. We are also very proud to have built a multi-disciplinary team of our own. The Hull team now includes:
ASC Specialist Teacher
Advisory Teacher for Interaction and Communication
Specialist Paediatric Occupational Therapist
Speech and Language Therapist
You will be able to draw upon the skills of these professionals for work within your schools and also for guidance and support.
We are looking for passionate, proactive people who really care about delivering positive outcomes for young people, their families and the schools and settings in which they work. We want you to be excited about the opportunities working for Applied Psychologies can bring and the chance to make real change in your schools.
The role requires HCPC registration, reliability, consistency and a proactive approach to communication and organisation.
Our purpose is simple; to deliver positive outcomes for young people, their families and the schools and settings in which they work.
Our team is now 30 members strong! We’re looking for passionate and dedicated professionals to join us. Here’s some of the reasons why our team love working with Applied Psychologies:
“Great team support and supervision - the WhatsApp group is really helpful! Also, you can focus on being an EP and not bureaucracy - the emphasis is on psychology!” Fiona, educational psychologist
“Being a tiny part of a fantastic organisation that puts people and communication at the heart of what it does; whether that be the young people, the school staff or AP colleagues” Kathy, specialist teacher - ASC
“Feeling like you have the flexibility and freedom to actually develop strategies and then review said strategies.” Jenny, educational psychologist
