Then we may have the job for you.
We have a full time, permanent role for a Clinical Psychologist in our CAFS Team.
We expect the best from people we employ and we try to give them the best! 
On this occasion we are looking for someone with experience within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, though more importantly someone who is passionate about young people and their whanau. You will have a range of assessment and therapy skills (such as CBT, DBT and ACT). We are also willing to provide training.
We require someone who can be creative, flexible and innovative. You must also possess a grand sense of humour and be compassionate and kind in your everyday interactions.
In return for these wonderful skills we will provide a warm and supportive team environment, opportunities to stretch yourself clinically and involvement in a fantastic community of people who want the best for their Rangitahi.
It’s a not a huge city but packs a powerful social experience if that’s what you are looking for. Its not next to the sea but is pretty close and they are wild and wonderful. It has awesome walks and bike tracks but more importantly the people are what makes it a fabulous place to be – both in the community and especially within our service.
Ring me, come for a visit (ZOOM or physically) allow us to share our awesomeness with you.
If you think this is you then call me now, Bev Huttley, Clinical Manager CAFS on 0275468828,  email: or Nathan Stevenson on 027 267 6094.
