EPs new to the service in January 2015 think that Essex EPS is...
'a big, well managed, and organised service which is held in regard with schools and other professionals. Psychology is at the heart of things - with very interesting opportunities for CPD.'

'an extremely supportive team that has thorough induction processes that have allowed me to ease myself into the role with no difficulties. Essex's set of systems and procedures allow EPs to use their initiative and expertise in a safe and supportive service. I particularly value the Essex CPD programme with outside speakers.'

Applications are welcomed from experienced EPs and those currently on a training course due to complete this year for the Soulbury A posts. Applicants must be registered with or be eligible for registration with the HCPC.
