The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults.

We are committed to improving mental health and emotional wellbeing, believing that high quality mental health services should be available for all who need them. We bring a distinctive contribution based on the importance we attach to social experience at all stages of people’s lives, and our focus on psychological and developmental approaches to the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of mental ill health

We contribute to the pool of ideas through our own research and development, but are also committed to bringing together the best ideas of the time, old and new, from inside and out, together with the most gifted and able professionals in our fields of endeavour. We aim to share our ideas and practice through as many routes as possible.

As a Trust we aim constantly to be evolving in nature and form in relation to the environment in which we work, to ensure that our contribution remains relevant.


We are looking for an experienced and innovative systemic psychotherapy supervisor and trainer to lead and develop the systemic qualifying course. The Masters in Systemic Psychotherapy (M6) is the qualifying course for systemic family therapists. It is the largest and oldest course in the country and has an annual intake.

The post holder will work closely with the Systemic Portfolio Manager and other members of the Systemic Discipline to develop and deliver the teaching and supervision on trainings in Systemic Psychotherapy both within the Trust and externally. The post will require significant experience of teaching, supervision and course delivery at post graduate level.

The post holder will be based in the Department of Education and Training and an active member of the Systemic Psychotherapy Discipline. The post holder will be expected to have an interest in and awareness of evidence based practice and the importance of research in promoting the discipline.
