A background in clinical and/or forensic psychology with supporting qualifications and experience is essential, with current registered practitioner status desirable.

To be successful you will further enrich our student’s experience through your expertise and subject knowledge as evidenced through your qualifications and extensive experience of professional practice. In return, you will join a forward thinking and dynamic team that pushes the boundaries of curriculum development within our discipline.
