An exciting opportunity has arisen within a therapeutically led Clinical Team based in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough working with Children in Care.

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 to apply. If your application is successful interviews will take place virtually, over Microsoft Teams.

We are looking for Specialist Clinicians that have grounding in CAMHS, Psychology or Psychotherapy clinical experience in the context of Children and Young People who are in care.

• 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 overall aim of the Clinical Service is to provide therapeutic support to improve the emotional health and wellbeing of children in care and those that may be edging into as well as their parents/carers and staff and to enable them to thrive. Support will utilise and build upon the assets and strengths of the child, family and the community that surrounds them.

• 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.

• You will contribute to the formulation of assessments and provide intervention, alone and jointly, as agreed with other team members and those involved with care planning for the individual child.

The delivery model focusses on therapeutic approaches that are relational, that build strong relationships around the child, increase family regulation, parental sensitivity and attunement to support the development of attachment security between the child and their primary carers.

The service recognises the varying needs of the families we support and therefor, clinicians will draw upon varying theoretical and therapeutic approaches that support children and families with experience of developmental and relational trauma.

Postholder Requirements:

• We are looking for individuals with a minimum of 2 years’ experience, working in a clinical environment with children and their families, a formal Clinical Psychology, Psychotherapy, Occupational Therapy, or mental health CAMHS nursing qualification to be considered for the role.

• The post-holder will provide specialist assessment and clinical interventions within their professional sphere of expertise.

• They will be responsible for outcome measurement of their caseload.

• They will ensure that a high quality, timely, accessible and evidence-based service is available to all service users who require this input, throughout the boroughs.

• The post-holder will establish and maintain excellent working relationships with wider children’s social care, mental health and wellbeing services and ensure adherence to evidence-based interventions by all clinical staff across the team.

• The post-holder will be directly involved in delivering a range of clinical interventions, which may include dyadic work, parent/carer only work, training to foster carers and professionals, consultation, and specialist therapeutic clinical intervention.

• The post-holder must hold a UK driving licence and be willing to travel across the boroughs, where required to meet the needs of the families we support. The post will include a hydroid model of working.

The Team you will be joining is an energetic and passionate group of people who are driven by the need to support children, young people and the teams around them in helping them thrive. You will be joining a well-integrated health and social care team which allows for the sharing of skills, ideas and experiences to enhance the journey of Young People through all of the Services.
