The North Wales Integrated Autism Service (IAS) is a new Service set up in partnership between BCUHB and our Local Authority partners. The initiative which is hosted by Flintshire Local Authority was set up with funding from Welsh Government with one key aim being the provision of diagnostic assessments and other services to adults with an Autism Spectrum Condition but no associated Learning Disability. We are hoping to recruit a full time Band 8a Clinical Psychologist (12-months fixed-term contract).

The successful candidate will work within a Multi-Disciplinary Team including Clinical Psychology, Specialist Nursing, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Social Work and Support Workers. A major focus of the work will be undertaking diagnostic assessments with adults. The service is comprised of highly motivated, skilled, friendly and supportive practitioners and we aim to provide services in community (non-medical) settings. The Service ethos is one where the Autism Spectrum is conceptualised as a condition as opposed to a Disorder and we try to focus as much as possible on the strengths associated with Autism.

The post offers a great opportunity to someone who wishes to develop their knowledge and skill base in this area. Previous experience of diagnostic work within the field of ASC would be desirable, but it is not essential. Ideally we would like to recruit one practitioner to the post on a full time basis, however, we will consider requests from individuals currently working part time who are interested in increasing their working hours for a time limited period.

The IAS is a pan North Wales Service and the successful candidate will be expected to deliver services from a range of community and service based environments across the region. However, we will also endeavour, where possible, to take into account applicant’s personal circumstances when allocating individual clinical bases. We would be particularly interested to hear from applicants who can deliver services through the medium of Welsh.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
