Careers

If you set out to create a new psychology service, what would it look like?

Join us and have the freedom to work where you want... when you want... how you want

HSR is for psychologists with the ambition and an appetite to change the way psychology services are delivered to children and young people. We are a team of psychologists that want to deliver the best possible services to children and young people, not just to meet statutory requirements.

Our vision is for all children and young people to maximise their potential by having their needs met at home, school and in the community so they can be happy, safe, and ready to cope with life’s challenges.

Our psychologists work to their own time, free of the ticking clock. Supported by the HSR Psychology team, a passionate group of people working to deliver positive change in society.

Our psychologists work on their own terms in the locations they want, at the times they want and with the freedom to provide services how they want.

Through careful listening and excellent communication, we create a supportive and flexible environment which is responsive to the needs of our team members as well as the people we work with.

Culture and social

We are an ambitious company, driven by the desire to make psychology work as it should. Whilst we are not for profit, we are for working together to provide a competitive, sustainable service, that is dedicated to maximising positive social impact. As a social enterprise our culture is important to us. Our culture is created from the diversity within the HSR team and our shared core values.

We are looking for psychologists who share our values.

It is important to us that all members of our team share our values. Our five core values reflect this and run throughout the HSR service:

  • Child-centred
  • Flexible
  • Holistic
  • Supportive
  • Evidence-based

We exist to deliver better. A better psychology service, a better psychology career and ultimately to realise the potential of children and young people.

Child-centred and holistic

The strengths, needs and unique situation of each child and young person is valued by every member of our dedicated team in order to take a holistic, child-centred and needs-led approach.

Our team use their specialist knowledge, professionalism and communication skills to improve the outcomes of children and young people through providing a consistent, reliable and responsive service.

Flexibility

Flexibility is a core value of HSR.

We believe our clients and psychologists can achieve the best results when they’re given the freedom to operate by placing the child and young person's needs at the centre of what, why and how they deliver their services.

With this in mind, our psychologists are ready to work from anywhere with an internet connection. We have invested in secure systems, which give our psychologists, when not in schools or clinic, the flexibility to choose where they work. Our psychologists will often spend their time working from home, schools, or our clinics.

We also provide high-quality clinic space in Manchester, Cheshire and Liverpool for our psychologists to meet with clients as required.

Meet the team

Supportive

Our team is rich in experience and we provide opportunities for this to be shared and for psychologists to help support one another.

We see it as our role to make the transition to working outside a local authority, or more traditional environment, as easy and successful as can be.

We pride ourselves in offering a flexible yet supportive work environment for our psychologists. To help us do this we have a team of assistant psychologists, human resources personnel, accounts and admin staff dedicated to delivering the best possible support to our psychologists. Our support team takes care of the entire infrastructure, which enables our psychologists to focus on what they do best, improving the lives of children and young people.

Evidence-based

Working in an evidence-based way is a core value for us.

We’re proud to say our psychologists are based all over the North West but we do relish a good get together. We have a full team meeting twice a year where all our team meet up to share good practice, review new evidence, and discuss how we can best use our resources and skills to maximise social impact.

We believe in lifelong learning and understand that new opportunities can arise when roles, skills and interests develop. We run regular CPD events that all our team are welcome to attend. Our psychologists also partake in regular supervision and can access the diverse range of specialisms and experience of our team.

The aim is to help our psychologists to continue to develop as exceptional practitioners, whilst supporting the shift to a more entrepreneurial way of working. We advise all of our psychologists to take full advantage of the development opportunities we offer, so that they can maximise the potential within their own practice and also with the services we can provide to our clients.
