Job Introduction

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Turning Point’s Substance Use and Mental Health Team which delivers treatment across the whole of Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland. We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Senior Assistant Psychologist interested in working with young people and young adults with co-existing substance use and mental health difficulties.


Role Responsibility

The role of the YP/YA Senior Assistant Psychologist is to support the assessment and delivery of interventions to young people and young adults with co-existing substance use and mental health needs under supervision of a Registered Psychologist. The post holder will assist in clinically related administration, deliver psychological interventions, administer questionnaires or standardised psychometric tests, conduct audits, collect data and statistics, and contribute to research projects and training.

The Ideal Candidate
