Job Description

Clinical Practitioner

£38,919 - £45,438

Permanent, Full-time

Ref: SC02575

The role

We’re looking for junior clinicians for posts in Care and Permanence (Looked After Children) and in Safeguarding, and we also have an exciting opportunity for a clinical practitioner to work as part of our specialist multi-modal Edge of Care team. The posts are suitable for qualified systemic therapists, clinical psychologists or those with equivalent qualifications.

You will be working within a systemic framework providing clinical expertise to assist social work staff to manage risk and improve outcomes for children, young people, and their families. You’ll provide clinical assessments and interventions to the most vulnerable children and their families and provide consultation and clinical expertise to social work and YOS colleagues and other professionals. Analysing complex clinical data, you will monitor the effectiveness of the interventions being offered to each child, and the reports you produce will be used to assist with making the right decisions for children in care proceedings or in the criminal justice system.

These roles have the scope to transform the lives of every child, adolescent, parent and carer you come into contact with. You will therefore need to have a solid grasp of a range of interventions and a proven record of working systemically to create change for children and families. We are currently particularly keen to meet applicants with skills in working with adults as well as with children, and who have skills in psychometric assessments.

We can offer you quality clinical supervision, resources, training and support to do the job well. Our approach engenders a shared sense of accountability, reflective space and support.

A satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check at an enhanced level is required.
