Are you an experienced Educational Psychologist, recently qualified or soon to complete your training? Are you looking for a change, your first post as an educational psychologist, or new challenges?

Having built a strong reputation for a high quality, responsive service, we are developing new ways of applying psychology in a changing educational context. We are looking for Educational Psychologists who bring energy and enthusiasm to their work, and who are looking for opportunities to develop their practice in innovative and creative ways. If you join us, you will take an active part in the development of our psychology-led service. You will have opportunities to initiate and participate in a broad range of work including action research, alongside providing a core service to a family of schools within Manchester.

We value and invest in our staff through continual professional development and regular supervision. As part of our commitment to growing our expertise we are offering up to £1,000 (FTE) of personal CPD to successful applicants. In the past year, this allowance has enabled members of our team to undertake training in Video Interaction Guidance and Narrative Therapy, and to attend conferences around the UK and abroad.

Recognising the need to maintain balance in our working lives, we actively encourage part- time and flexible working.

Catalyst Psychology is a Social Enterprise established in 2011 and delivering the full range of Child and Educational Psychology Services to more than 50 schools across the City of Manchester. Ethnically and socially diverse, and with a growing population, Manchester is a vibrant and exciting city to work in. Our office base is in Didsbury, set in a beautiful small park with mature gardens maintained by volunteers.

Applicants must be professionally qualified educational psychologists registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, or trainee educational psychologists in their 3rd year of training. Successful candidates will be employed under Catalyst terms and conditions.
