Are you a highly motivated, compassionate and dedicated mental health professional who is committed to providing high quality care to young people? Do you believe in keeping young people and families at the heart of everything you do? Would you like to work in a dynamic, creative and committed multi-disciplinary team?

The Child and Family Pathway East Suffolk is looking for a practitioner to join their service in the Enhanced Child and Family Team. You will be joining an enthusiastic and multi disciplinary team with a systemic focus and an emphasis on multi agency working.

You will deliver high quality interventions through evidence based practice and be a valued part of the team. There is regular and robust supervision with an emphasis on reflective practice and development.

The Child and Family Pathway East Suffolk provides mental health services for young people across the east of the county and is hosted in Ipswich Integrated Delivery Team (IDT). The pathway consists of specialist community services such as Learning Disability, ADHD and our Enhanced Child and Family Service. It has good links with our Primary Mental Health Worker Service.

It is an exciting time to join the service, as with all CAMHS teams we are undergoing transformation and development plans with other key agencies and development 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.

For a list of essential and desirable qualifications for this post, please see the job description and person specification.

Apart 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).

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.

Disclosure and Barring Service Check

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as CRB) to check for any previous criminal convictions.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.
