Is your passion to working creatively with children and families? Looking for a role with flexible working opportunities?

We are proud to have an opportunity to join our assessment and intensive support service . As a practitioner specialising in preventative and assessment interventions we would welcome applications from Registered Nurses, Social Workers or Therapists. Interested but are unsure you have the skills required for the role straight away? If you have the passion and interest in this area of developing your career we can provide developmental training.

The role is part of our Child Family and Young Persons service (CFYP) in Great Yarmouth and Waveney where we work alongside the family, local acute hospital, primary care sector, social care, education and voluntary services to reduce the need for children and young people to access secondary mental health services. 

As part of this team, responsibilities would include undertaking assessments of children and young people in crisis, working collaboratively with families and other supporting agencies to manage crisis, close working with our local acute hospitals and brief 1:1 interventions as part of the crisis service caseload. The role also involves some community intensive support, working with young people and their families on a short to medium term basis in periods of acute mental illness.

We are confident that being part of our small team, this role will assist in letting you be the practitioner  you trained to be with the time and facilities to make a difference, whilst having the much wider network of the bigger trust CFYP team across Norfolk and Suffolk.

We provide a service 8.00am -midnight Monday-Friday . Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays 9am-1pm. (Enhanced pay is offered for evening and weekends and bank holidays). We support flexible working and will consider applications for part-time hours.

We will provide a full induction program, regular clinical and management supervision with opportunity to explore goals and aspirations. We have extensive training and career development that can be accessed across our Trust.

Our CFYP services continue to thrive and innovate nationally. Norfolk and Waveney CFYP service is unique and aspires to address the issues raised by the children and young people's mental health and wellbeing from 0-25. Over the past 24 months we’ve benefitted from significant investment, expansion and growth in existing and new services such as Early Intervention in Psychosis, Eating Disorders and expansion of our Tier 4 inpatient unit Dragonfly, the Perinatal Community Mental Health service, the opening of our Mother and Baby Unit and the Under 18 Crisis Pathway.

Interviews will be the 11th of March however subject to change.
