Lead Neuropsychologist – Expanding Cognivate

We are seeking an experienced and ambitious neuropsychologist who is keen to drive excellence in community-based neurorehabilitation by playing strategic leadership and clinical roles within our innovative interdisciplinary service.  

Established 18 months ago, Cognivate is expanding – which means that there are exciting opportunities now to lead, shape, and grow our services.   We are open to applicants at any level of seniority, as the responsibilities of the position can be varied accordingly.

Role responsibilities will be candidate dependent and could include:

  • Strategic leadership of specific aspects of our provision, and development of new strands

  • Clinical casework, both direct and supervisory

  • Involvement in, and leadership of, interdisciplinary rehabilitation programmes

  • Management and clinical supervision of associate neuropsychologists

  • Development of our programme of online groups

  • Training activities

  • Research and evaluation 

  • Building of collaborative professional network

If the prospect of being involved in, or leading, one or more aspects of our evolving service appeals, we would be keen to hear from you – we have a flexible approach to drawing on expertise in ways which work for the service and our team.   

Reflecting this, appointments may be on a fractional or full-time basis.  We offer attractive salary and benefit packages, with the possibility of participating in a profit-share scheme. 

Who are we?

Cognivate was launched in January 2021, bringing a fully interdisciplinary approach to neurorehabilitation in the independent sector. Our neurospecialist therapists from all the main disciplines work in a highly integrated and collaborative way with clients and their families to enhance their independence and quality of life. We see people in their homes, workplaces, and online.  Innovation and evaluation are key to our goal-focused approach.  
Much of our clinical work is undertaken in a medicolegal context, and we work closely with case managers and other professionals.  We also run online groups which are free of charge and open to anyone with acquired brain injury.

Where and how will you work? 

Our geographical area currently spans London and the South-East.  You will be based at your home, and travel to see clients in their own homes and workplaces; however our strong team ethos is underpinned by regular team meetings, some in-person and others remote. 

Person specification

You must be an HCPC registered clinical psychologist, with extensive experience of community-based neurorehabilitation and of working within interdisciplinary teams. Some experience of working in a medicolegal context would be an asset.


In addition to a competitive salary or hourly pay (as preferred), you will receive excellent CPD support including access to clinical/professional supervision as appropriate to your development.  Other benefits include:

  • flexibility in working hours and opportunities to take on additional private work if desired

  • 28 days paid holiday plus bank holidays (if employed)

  • employer contributions to a private pension scheme and/or other optional benefits, at an overall level of 20% of your salary

  • opportunity to be part of a profit-share scheme
