An exciting opportunity for practitioners with experience of working with children, young people and families to join a recently established team, which is part of local plans to transform services that support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of all children and young people in Suffolk. The Emotional Wellbeing Hub provides a therapeutic response to children, young people, families and professionals over the phone or by other digital means, ensuring that all enquiries receive an appropriate offer of support, advice or guidance, with the aim of simplifying access to help. We also have opportunities to join the Hub’s Urgent Response Team, which offers face-to-face support to children, families and young people in crisis. Please indicate your preference at interview. If this is an area you are passionate about, we look forward to hearing from you. We are seeking an experienced and motivated practitioner who can demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and experience of working with other agencies and disciplines, having the commitment and confidence to work positively and creatively to support the development of this new service.
Stakeholders, including young people and parents and carers who use our services, have set the following ambition for our workforce: “Ensure that you are kind and compassionate towards all children, young people and families, emphasising the need to give extra care and support for those presenting with mental health conditions and recognising that this group have their own care and support needs which differ from adult service users and their carers. Keep the needs of children, young people and families at the centre of your work, ensuring – where possible – that their voices are heard, all work is co-produced, and there is transparency and honesty instilled in all decisions made.” Ideally you will have relevant experience with this client group or significant relevant transferable skills appropriate to this role. We are looking for individuals who possess a combination of professional skills in therapeutic engagement, evidence-based practice, clinical assessment and formulation, as well as a good working knowledge of child and family services. In return, we offer the opportunity to work with a supportive multidisciplinary team, individual and group supervision and a service committed to on-going learning and practice development.

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.
