If you’re a Psychologist, join Psychology Direct today

For qualified, experienced Psychologists, joining our community of like minded professionals is a step towards exceptional opportunities and outstanding benefits.

Offering a wide variety of cases from Expert Witness reports for the legal profession, Educational Psychology support for schools and Local Authorities as well as assessments, we pride ourselves on being the best in the industry, and this is reflected in the incredible network of professionals already working with us.

But you won’t just be working for us – we’ll be working for you.

We work hard to find new, varied referrals for the highly-valued Psychologists working with us. The strong relationships we have established with our clients over many years, keep our Associates Psychologists busy with a wide range of challenging and interesting cases. Thanks to our leading position in the Education and Expert Witness sectors, you’ll gain access to opportunities which can broaden and enrich your experience.

We value the skills that Psychologists bring to our clients and offer a range of support and training to help you continue to develop when you work with us.  We have Psychologists on staff who offer supervision and support, as well as regular CPD sessions to make sure you are up to speed with the latest developments and best practice.

In addition to benefiting from a stream of referrals targeted at your areas of interest and expertise, you’ll have our dedicated team of client managers working hard to support you, saving you valuable time while you concentrate on client care. For the duration of the case we’ll act as a buffer, providing invaluable administration support around deadlines and appointments, paperwork, queries and quality checking reports. You’ll enjoy performing the role you trained to do, leaving everything else in our capable hands.

Registering as an associate with us has the significant benefit of securing work that fits around your life and other commitments, whether that be professional commitments, family or personal. There’s no obligation – a case will be brought to you for consideration and there’s no pressure to accept. Our client managers get to know our associates well, so if you have a particular area of interest, wish to widen your exposure to certain cases or enhance your CV, we’ll take all this into consideration.

We understand that working independently can be daunting and sometimes isolating, so we provide guidance on issues you may face, such as tax, insurance, GDPR, DBS, specific protocols in certain types of cases and professional supervision.

Also as one of our Associates you enjoy a peace of mind which is highly valued by those who register with us. You are guaranteed to be paid by us – no matter what issues may crop up with the referring party.

Our values of integrity, quality and ensuring the end client receives the very best representation, directly impacts on how we treat our registered Psychologists. We understand only too well the invaluable contribution you make to complex and critical cases.

Our Associate Psychologists are treated with respect, fairness and honesty and are represented, valued and paid well. In a recent survey, we were rated extremely highly for the professional, reliable and helpful way that we work with our Associates.

Psychology Direct has grown rapidly and consistently in scale and success since its inception over 10 years ago and we are ambitious about our future. Our network of Psychologists will benefit from increased referrals, widening scope of work and our plans to invest further in CPD and developing a true Associate Psychologist community.

If you would like to grow with us, and benefit from working with us, then register today.
