The Force requires the services of a qualified Psychological Services Provider who is capable of providing a demand driven Psychological service provision in support of the in-house Occupational Health Counselling and Welfare team. The services will be provided to officers and staff employed by Staffordshire Police and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue.
