Working with us
Welcome to the only psychological personal injury service in the UK, offering both psychology and case management. We ensure that our Psychologists are trained and supported within the case management/litigation context, and our Case Managers are psychologically informed.
Now that we have combined our skills, the opportunities are vast, and we're honoured that you are considering working with us. Many thanks for giving us that time.
We sincerely hope you like what you read about us enough to want to join our specialist family.
We are always looking for new Associates to join our growing network of clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists, neuropsychologists and educational psychologists to undertake new cases referred to us.
Our Associates are qualified, experienced and highly specialised psychologists who share our commitment to provide an expert yet personable service to our catastrophically injured clients, and the professionals around the clients.
Does this type of work interest you?
Our clients and their families can have a range of needs:
trauma, loss and grief support
adjustment to injury
... and so much more.
The therapeutic approaches vary widely, therefore: from one-to-one or family trauma-informed approaches, to Third Wave modalities and behavioural interventions, to consultancy support for the professional network.
We also have potential opportunities to develop training programmes together, offer webinars to inform referrers of a particular applicable psychological strategy for this client group, as well as guest on our podcast, and join our social media groups.
If you’re still interested in working with PsychWorks Associates, here’s what you need...
If you are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or reasonable equivalent, and if you have experience of working with adults, children and/or families, we would like to hear from you.
We are currently seeking Associates across the UK as we are happy to expand in areas where there are keen, motivated and passionate clinicians who work in the field of catastrophic personal injury.
Home visits are usually indicated due to the injuries sustained, but also because of the systemic needs which will naturally inform the psychological treatment plan. This latter point can sometimes be a 'make or break' factor in working with us.
The core of our ethos at PsychWorks Associates is that we develop strong relationships with our clients, their families, and the professionals around them. We believe that good results are most likely when the system around the client is working well: therapeutic alliance is key.
We also require Associates to be responsive, proactive, professional, flexible and personable, with the professional team as well as the client and family. Our reputation has been built over 10 years, and Associates who work with us understand how much their professionalism matters.
Due to the complex needs of many of our clients, working systematically and fostering positive relationships through effective, regular communication with solicitors, therapy teams and/or care teams is essential.
There is therefore an expectation that input for each client is likely to be more than 1 hour a week, on average, to accommodate communication and commuting. All your time is remunerated at the same rate.
Why join PsychWorks Associates?
We believe we are a nurturing and supportive group for psychologists who want to offer their skills in the field of catastrophic injury, but who want the support and security of being part of a litigation-informed organisation.
Specifically, we offer:
Competitive rates of remuneration
Regular supervision, guidance and advice
Clear guidance and protocols to support our working practices
The opportunity to participate in training and consultancy, and to explore research ideas.
If you are interested in working with PsychWorks Associates, please send your CV and a covering letter to: email@example.com
Or let us know you would like to chat about working with us, and we can arrange to speak.
All personnel are expected to have valid DBS clearance checks.
We also welcome interest from psychology graduates looking for experience.
Are you looking to gain experience in the clinical psychology field?
We are interested in applications from psychology graduates who are looking for honorary and occasionally paid sessional assistant work.
Please note that we only take applications from candidates who already hold a first degree in Psychology or are in the process of completing their degree.
We do not offer work placements to secondary school students.
If you meet the above requirements please send expression of interest and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
