The Welsh Assembly Government has recently provided funding to set up the Integrated

Autism Service (IAS) across Wales. As part of this significant service development, the

BUCHB was commissioned to set up the North Wales IAS in partnership with our Local Authority partners. The BCUHB Clinical Psychology Department is seeking to employ a Clinical Psychologist (1 wte) who will play a key role within the IAS.

This is an exciting opportunity for those who have a special interest in working with people with Autism, particularly adults who do not have an associated Learning Disability. In addition to leading on the diagnostic assessment component of the IAS, the successful candidates will also provide input with regard to post diagnostic support and consultation to other services across the Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Division.

You will work within a Multi-Disciplinary Team including another Clinical Psychologist,

Specialist Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Social Work and

Support Workers. In addition to providing direct input to Service Users and their families/carers, the IAS will also have a remit to provide consultation to other Services to increase effectiveness and accessibility. Given this we are particularly interested in hearing form candidates who are interested in the provision of clinical leadership, innovative working, transforming care, and who are passionate about improving services for people with Autism Spectrum Conditions.

Candidates will be expected to have post qualification experience working with people with ASC and have direct experience in diagnostic assessment and providing post diagnostic support. Experience of working with families and carers and providing advice/support to other services/agencies regarding ASC would also be an advantage.

The IAS is a pan North Wales service and the successful applicant will be expected to deliver services from a range of community and service based environments across the region. The Clinical Base will be in Flintshire County Council offices in Ewloe.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
