Why choose to work in psychology and psychological therapies at Sussex Partnership
Our psychology and psychological therapies teams are vital to the Trust and are core to our working model. We value them and are committed to supporting them to give people and their families or carers the best possible care.
We know that lifelong learning and development is an important part of working in this area, so we offer continuing professional development that all staff are encouraged and supported to take part in. We also know that this can be extremely important for those at the beginning of their careers, so we make sure that early career professionals are particularly supported.
Our culture ensures that all staff benefit from good professional leadership support, supervision, and advice. Our large team includes people with highly specialist expertise and/or research responsibilities in a wide variety of specialisms, so there are excellent people to learn from as you work.
Ensuring all of our work comes from a strong evidence base is crucial, and you will have the opportunity to integrate research directly into your work and see how it is applied in practice. This means that we know what we do really works! There are also opportunities to get directly involved in research and take on your own projects.
At Sussex Partnership you would be working with some of the most experienced and renowned people in psychology and psychological therapies – giving you the opportunity to work with and learn from the best.
Given the variety and diversity of roles within our psychology service, we welcome candidates from all different backgrounds. We are committed to improving the diversity of the people we employ to ensure our Trust best meets the needs of the population we serve. Lived experience of mental health challenges is also highly valued.
