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.

DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
