Summer placement Milton Keynes Social Enterprise - updated

Post by miriam » Thu Apr 18, 2013 1:40 am

We are able to offer a summer placement (minimum 12 week commitment) within our social enterprise as a Psychology Intern for either 4 or 5 days per week to either an undergraduate who has completed their second year of their psychology degree, or to a psychology graduate (or completed conversion course) who wants a first foot-in-the-door experience.

The placement will provide the opportunity to work alongside assistant psychologists, a CBT therapist, a qualified CP and a Consultant CP within a social enterprise working predominantly with children and families (http://www.evolvingfamilies.org.uk). You will have the opportunity to contribute to research, for example giving out and collecting questionnaires, contributing to data entry, literature reviews, etc. If your contribution is significant it may be that you can be acknowledged or named on a paper. You can help us seek out funding opportunities and populate our social media. You will also be involved with summarising medical notes or police records, arranging appointments, and other administrative tasks. You may have the opportunity to sit in on team meetings, training events, groups, client interviews or assessments, or to join members of the team when they do school or placement visits. Appropriate supervision will be provided. You can familiarise yourself with our range of psychometrics, browse our book shelves, and may be able to read some of our (anonymised) past reports. Please note that it is highly unlikely that it would be appropriate to have any involvement in therapy during this placement.

We are looking for a bright self-motivated individual with a strong commitment to clinical psychology. You must have or be on track to get a 2:1 or 1st. No prior experience necessary. Placement offer will be conditional on references and CRB checks.

This is an unpaid placement designed to offer a short-term learning opportunity in return for hard work. We will pay travel expenses (apart from home to work travel) and a small honorarium of £5 per day for subsistence.

To apply please send a letter of up to one page explaining how you fit the position and a one page CV including the names, titles, email and telephone for two referees to info@evolvingfamilies.org.uk - The closing date is 30th April.

**I'm sorry I have to spell this out, but please do not PM me, email me on other email addresses or ring me at work about this position - use the email address given above**

We have had a high level of response to this advert, with a good quality of applications, so it has taken me longer than expected to short-list. Thanks to all those who applied. I have now emailed those who sent an application but were unsuccessful at the short-listing stage.

Update: we have now interviewed and appointed. The standard of applicants was very high and we are delighted with our new interns. If the placement works well we will consider offering this as a regular opportunity within the company.

We are now open to applications for summer 2014. We will accept applications until the first Friday in May :) All details as the top post, except that our staff configuration has slightly changed, so we don't currently have a CBT therapist.

Thanks for the high level and quality of applications. We have now shortlisted 20 candidates to complete a screening task, and will use this to select who to interview.
