An opportunity has arisen for a 12-month fixed term post leading Coastal integrated Delivery Team (IDT) Mental Health Services.

The core functions of the post will be supporting the delivery of operational services; however a key aspect of the role will be leading the IDT through a significant programme of transformation in mental health services within Suffolk, encompassing adult, older peoples, children’s and learning disability services, across primary and secondary care.
Consequently you will need to be able to demonstrate strong interpersonal communication skills and a track record in collaborative leadership, with a current or recent clinical background. You will be comfortable in working within and across organisational boundaries and representing the Trust in multi-agency contexts.
The IDT consists of Later Life, Adult, Youth and Children and Family Teams, as well as the Learning Disability Service. Ipswich is a culturally diverse town and these teams provide specialist mental health services to the population in a community setting. These multidisciplinary teams also have Suffolk County Council staff integrated within them as part of a Section 75 agreement.
You will be able to demonstrate extensive capabilities and proven experience when looking at integrated services, resource management, change programmes and partnership working, at both strategic planning and operational delivery levels.

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.
