Are you an experienced, trusted and compassionate Practitioner Psychologist, recently qualified or about to complete your accredited professional training?
We’re looking to appoint an Educational Psychologist to join our team in the Department of Education, Sport and Culture on the beautiful Isle of Man.
If you are interested in making a positive difference in the lives of children, families, schools and the wider community, enjoy building relationships in multi-professional teams and applying psychology in all areas, then we are interested in meeting you.
What could this role offer you?
This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a dynamic and varied role.

We provide our team with the time for creative and reflective practice and support, and provide excellent IT support including provision of laptops, smartphones and iPads.
This opportunity offers the chance to enjoy applying and using evidence based psychology to provide a range of interventions and improve outcomes for children and young people and their families. In addition, we can provide great opportunities to develop professional practice and to contribute to strategic developments and pathways. We have a strong commitment to supporting CPD within our team, including therapeutic approaches such as Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) and family therapy.
Here, you would be joining our friendly, highly-committed team, where we have a real focus on promoting staff wellbeing. We can offer you a competitive salary and the opportunity to work in a supportive and forward-thinking organisation that values our people and their development. This is a full time position but, as an equal opportunities employer, we will consider flexible working arrangements.

We are looking for an adaptable and forward thinking practitioner, with understanding of psychological theories and their application to children and young people. You will have a good understanding of a consultative approach to delivery of psychology, including how this informs individual casework and systemic work.
As you’ll be working with a broad range of audiences, excellent interpersonal skills, with the ability to communicate effectively will be key to ensuring success. We’re looking for someone with a can do approach to developing inclusive, enabling learning environments.
