Is it your passion to work creatively with children and families? Would you like to work in a dynamic, creative and committed multi-disciplinary team? Are you a highly motivated, compassionate and dedicated mental health professional?
We are excited to have an opportunity for somebody to join our assessment and treatment service in The Enhanced Children & Families Service (0-14 yrs). As a practitioner you will be able to demonstrate a warm, compassionate and needs-led approach to working with our service users and their families. We would welcome applications from Registered Nurses, Social Workers and Therapists.
The role includes multi-agency working alongside the family, local acute hospital, primary care sector, social care, education and voluntary services to ensure the child’s needs are best met.
As part of this team, responsibilities would include undertaking assessments of children and young people in crisis and routine referrals, working collaboratively with families and other supporting agencies to manage needs, as well as holding a caseload.
We are confident that being part of our team would enable you to be the practitioner you trained, and would like, to be. This role will offer you the time and facilities to make a difference, whilst having the much wider Trust network across Norfolk and Suffolk. There is regular clinical and management supervision with an emphasis on reflective practise. We hold a strong belief in team and individual development. We provide a full induction program and have extensive training and career development that can be accessed across our Trust.
As a Trust over the past 24 months we have benefited from significant investment, expansion and growth in existing and new services such as Early Intervention in Psychosis, Eating Disorders, the Perinatal Community Mental Health service, the Under 18 Crisis Pathway as well as the Emotional Wellbeing Hub.
It is an exciting time join the service. As with all CAMHS teams, we are undergoing transformation and development plans with other key agencies and developments such as CYP-IAPT. We value multi-agency collaborative working and aspire to values from Future In Mind, such as service user participation and ensuring appropriate and evidence-based services for the young people we see.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIESApart from its legal duties in relation to equality and diversity, the Trust recognises and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Additionally, people with disabilities that fall under the Two Ticks - Guaranteed Interview Scheme will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post (outlined in the Person Specification). 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.
