Clinical Lead – Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Team

An exciting opportunity has arisen within a therapeutically led Clinical Team based in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough working with Children in Care. We are looking for a Clinical Head of Service that has grounding in CAMHS, Psychology or Psychotherapy and clinical experience in Children and Young People who are in care.

This is a rolling campaign, and we will review applications daily so please don't wait for the closing date to apply. Candidates will be progressed shortly after they apply, and the opportunity will be filled as soon as we identify a suitable candidate, which may be before the closing date. So please don't hesitate, we want to speak to you now! If your application is successful interviews will take place virtually, over Microsoft Teams.

• The purpose of the service is to support children who are at risk or are known to be at risk of placement or educational breakdown as well as for those whose level of functioning and relating to children and families is severely impacted by the traumatic experiences that they have had.
• The service is aimed at supporting children and their families in managing their emotional wellbeing, psychological and any other issues and the impact that this has on family functioning.
• You will provide efficient, effective, comprehensive management of specialist clinical service for children and adolescents with emotional, behavioural and mental health problems, their carers/parents and families that are in care.
• You will be part of our wider non-medical Clinical Service which is a multi-disciplinary team where you will access supervision and support.
• All risk management functions are held by the supervising social workers in their role as corporate parents. The Clinical Team shares risk for any clinical recommendations that it makes supported by the Assistant Director of Safeguarding and Quality Assurance.
• The delivery model focusses on therapeutic approaches that are relational, that build strong relationships around the child, increase family regulation, parental sensitivity, attunement, and attachment security to their primary carers, as well as stronger relationships between siblings, and wider family network.
• The service understands that no one theoretical therapeutic approach will sufficiently meet the needs of our population, therefore, the service is agile and responds to need in a way that draws upon different theoretical models but will not be restricted to the application of a single theoretical basis.
• Managing the Clinical Team, you will have a unique standpoint in ensuring that relational social work practice is enhanced, outcomes for children in care are improved, and that carers’ therapeutic abilities are nurtured.

The Clinical Team delivery model employs therapeutic approaches that are relational, that build strong relationships around the child, increase family regulation, parental sensitivity, attunement, and attachment security to their primary carers, as well as stronger relationships between siblings, and wider family network.

If you are an experienced senior clinical manager, with extensive knowledge and experience of working with children and families, and you are keen to embed evidence-based clinical work to support this, then please contact alison.bennett@peterborough.gov.uk for an informal conversation about the role.

Please refer to job description and person specification for full details.

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.
