Wellbeing Hub
£54,764 - £63,862

Can you demonstrate our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion? Do you share in our ambition to create high quality, compassionate care and wellbeing for all?

Then take a step towards LPT...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages. Delivered through over 100 settings from inpatient wards to out in the community, our 6,500 staff serves over 1 million people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

This is an exciting new role created to offer support to the newly established Leicestershire and Rutland Staff Wellbeing Hub. The hub is one of the first to be set up in response to the funding allocated for staff support in the light of the pandemic and offers the chance to ensure staff are offered helpful and meaningful support in all areas of their lives.

The successful psychologist would be involved in setting up a small team to support the Hub’s development of a service to a wide range of services throughout the area. This would include working closely with a well-established employee assistance programme to offer a range of psychological support to staff, to develop resources to support staff welfare, to input wellbeing content onto the website for staff support and offer support/supervision to staff in peer support roles. The role would also include working to develop a process to support staff who are involved in adverse experiences and to monitor other areas where psychological support is needed, with a view to expanding the role.

Two assistant psychologists will be recruited to support the band 8b in their role and the successful candidate will report into the clinical hub, although they will be employed by Leicestershire Partnership Trust

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated clinical psychologist to join the hub, with an interest in creating a flexible, creative and innovative service to support local staff.

Leicester is a thriving multi-cultural city with good arts and sporting facilities that enjoys excellent motorway links to other major cities and easy access to the surrounding countryside.
