We are looking for an additional Mental Health Mental Health Nurse / Social Worker / OT to strengthen our multi-disciplinary Looked After and Adopted Children Team in the Norfolk area. This team is a key part of the Compass Service with its emphasis on partnership work with the local authority and building meaningful relationships with looked after children, families and carers.

There will be opportunities to join carers group, foster care groups, work with residential care teams and carry out systemic work with families and multi-agency teams, always with a clear focus on improving outcomes for looked after children. If you enjoy working within a multi-disciplinary team, committed to being involved in both direct work and consultation with other professionals, you will be well suited to this role.

The role will involve both direct and indirect work with children, families and the wider system including assessment, brief intervention, consultation, training, liaison and signposting to other services. You will be supported to take a creative and ambitious approach to work, in order to ensure that children looked after are able to experience stability and security as they grow up.

This is a unique opportunity to be part of building on the Compass approach of therapeutic and mental health services. It is a varied and developmentally engaging role, which while challenging will also be rewarding. Within the role there will be an expectation to work creatively within the service to develop evidence of the impact of the work including support to engage in research and evaluation.

Interviews will be the 7th of December however subject to change.
