This includes people with emotion regulation difficulties, mood disorders, anxiety etc.

Our Team covers the locality of South Warwickshire. We have two bases in Leamington Spa and Stratford by and although you would be predominantly based in a particular location you are part of the wider team and get the opportunity to work across both localities with different colleagues.

The Role

Working within an established team, you’ll be managing a caseload of clients who have complex mental health problems and delivering a range of interventions. As a successful candidate you will have the opportunity to build your skills and confidence to eventually allow you to undertake the role of care co-ordinating a full caseload, being part of a duty team and undertaking trusted assessments.. You will be working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, using evidence based approaches and time limited interventions. You’ll be communicating with a wide variety of clients; professionals; partners and agencies.

Skills & Experience

Experience of assessing and working with people with complex and significant mental health problems is vital. We see this as an ideal opportunity to further develop specialist skills. It is important you have strong communication skills and you can work on your own initiative as well as collaboratively with colleagues. A willingness and enthusiasm to learn new skills and develop your practice is vital. This team provides interventions on a one to one basis but also in group formats. Therefore, experience of group intervention would be desirable. There are tight deadlines, and you will be often under pressure but you will be supported throughout your time with the team and we invest time and energy in developing you as a clinician. You will have to make difficult decisions but having a supportive and experienced team alongside you helps with that process. Above all it is absolutely vital that you have a sense of humour if you wish to join our team.

Why Us?

Working for our Team is demanding and hard work but incredibly rewarding. It offers the opportunity to develop some excellent specialist skills and take part in imaginative and effective interventions. The nature of the team means that you bring your knowledge, experience, enthusiasm and empathy and are exposed to the knowledge and skills of other colleagues within the team which promotes growth and development within your own practice at an accelerated rate. We are a team that recognises the work we do can be difficult at times and we have a strong supportive approach- both in professional matters and passing on good practice, learning and sharing risk but also when it impacts on us personally.
