We are offering an exciting opportunity to join a newly-funded service for people with Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDOC). The post-holder will join a newly-established team of highly specialist therapists, providing psychological care to individuals with complex neurological disability, their families and the team. You will work as part of the brand-new Neurorehabilitation Unit which has just relocated to University Hospital Llandough. This is a great time to join us and help shape this new service and how psychology/neuropsychology contributes to the care of adults with complex acquired brain injuries.

This post forms part of a supportive team of clinical psychologists/neuropsychologists and wider MDT.  The role includes consultation, staff training, team formulation and psychological support to service users and their families. There is access to a wealth of supervision and support within our friendly neuropsychology department. The post holder will have the opportunity to develop specialist areas of practice and knowledge in neuropsychology. We have strong teaching and research links with Cardiff University and CUBRIC, and research interests are actively encouraged.

We are looking for an applicant with knowledge and experience of working with inpatient neuro-rehab and with adults with complex disabilities. This post would appeal to an enthusiastic and motivated practitioner, who enjoys working as a team member and holds patient care at the centre of their work.
