Family Futures CIC, Islington, North London, are looking for a Senior Clinical Psychologist and Specialist Clinical Psychologist.

Both posts include the offer of funding and support for DDP Level One and Two training, and the DDP Practitioner Practicum.

Family Futures is a therapeutic assessment and intervention service for families who have been impacted by developmental trauma, a registered adoption agency and a registered fostering agency (rated Outstanding by Ofsted). We work using a neurosequential, holistic and inter-disciplinary approach. Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy is a key element of our approach and practice and both positions will entail opportunities for developing DDP practice, including Level One and Two training courses and practicum completion, as appropriate. Some experience of DDP is desirable but not essential.

We are recruiting for one Senior Clinical Psychologist and one Specialist Clinical Psychologist. Both positions will entail being a key member of the assessment and therapy team, working alongside colleagues of various disciplines including Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Creative Arts therapists, Psychotherapy, Family Therapy and Psychiatry.

The Specialist post will entail a greater emphasis on supervision, management and service development. Both positions entail ample opportunity for training, consultation, research, audit and direct work.

We offer a flexible working environment and promote diversity and inclusivity. Hybrid working approaches are also available.”
