Here at LPFT, our people lie at the heart of everything we do.

We provide mental health, learning disability and autism services to a local population of over 755,000 across 45 sites, as well as specialist services for children and young people.

The personality and complex trauma team are expanding countywide and are seeking enthusiastic qualified practitioners to support their mission to enhance service and improve experience for people with personality difficulties.
You will be a part of transforming the delivery of mental health services and making a real difference to people’s lives. The team are inclusive, caring and highly supportive of one another and are keen to grow and make a broader difference to the lives of the people who need our service.
This is a unique role where you will be given time, training and high levels of clinical supervision and reflective practice in order to deliver psychologically informed models of care to a small caseload of people with personality difficulties.
80% of people with personality difficulties would no longer meet the diagnostic criteria following evidence based interventions- this is a real opportunity to have a highly rewarding role where you can professionally develop and use your passion for working with this client group to support the development of staff across all LPFT services and others Lincolnshire services.
You will empower others to challenge the stigma around personality difficulties and ensure equal access to services that focus on empowering the individual to feel in control of their treatment and inspired to live a meaningful life.

We are leading the way with mental health transformation projects. Multi-million-pound schemes to transform patient environments and radically redesign community services are currently underway, as part of our commitment to reshaping the future of mental healthcare.

We believe the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce. This is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall, and 75% of our staff recommending us as a place to work.

We offer options for flexible working and provide development pathways and opportunities. We have a proud partnership with the University of Lincoln and the Lincoln Medical School, which has expanded our academic offerings to nurture talent across the Trust.

We are committed to ensuring our workforce is diverse at all levels. We are currently under-represented particularly at senior leadership level, so we welcome applications from women, people with disabilities, people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and those from the LGBT communities.
