Rossie is a registered charity, a multidisciplinary organisation with a high local, regional and national profile located close to Montrose. We are actively involved in the Scottish Government and Promise Scotland in delivering the change programme for young people. We are enthusiastically engaged with national and international research. We provide education, care, health and specialist psychological services to the most vulnerable young people across Scotland and the UK. All of our young people are assessed as having additional support needs (ASN) as a result of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in their lives and many have comorbid neurodevelopmental disorders and mental health difficulties. Our young people have been placed in our care via the Children Hearing Panels or Courts.

Our vision is to be a ‘Centre of Excellence that Changes Lives’ and we have received very good and excellent grades in both our Education and Care Inspections. We have won, and continue to win, multiple awards for staff, our young people and the organisation, which provides independent validation of our relentless commitment to continuous improvement. We are determined to retain and build on our sector leading status.

The Specialist Intervention, Health & Wellbeing (SIHW) Team is a specialist psychological and trauma informed service that works directly with our young people who present with a range of complex social, emotional and behavioural challenges and who can pose a risk to themselves and to others. The SIHW Team ensures a therapeutic environment for our young people and the team works directly offering highly specialist psychological services, assessment, consultation, and risk formulations. We also provide staff training, service evaluation, teaching and training to ensure evidence-based practice is embedded in the wider system.

The provision of a specialist, therapeutic and comprehensive psychological service ensures our young people and others involved in their care and support have access to high quality assessments and interventions which address a range of needs and take account of relevant risk factors and formulations. We promote a multi-theoretical approach to ensure that the broad range of needs are understood and accounted for when care plans are being designed and delivered.

As a Clinical Psychologist, you will utilise a broad range of psychological theories and a treatment modalities to oversee, enhance and deliver interventions using specialist psychological assessments and formulations. You will provide specialist clinical knowledge, support, and guidance to the relevant members of SIHW Team ensuring all psychological interventions are delivered in accordance with best practice standards.

You will provide supervision to the trainee/assistant psychologists and other multi-disciplinary practitioners in the team. You will provide advice and guidance on psychological care to other professionals, carers and families. As part of a multi-disciplinary organisation, you will actively contribute towards the training and support of staff involved in the delivery of specialist interventions to young people.
