Are you passionate about supporting the Mental Health and Wellbeing of young people and their families?

Over the past 2 years we have seen an increase in Children’s mental health difficulties. Social isolation and changes in occupational balance and participation has had a significant impact on young people and families. Occupational Therapy plays an essential role in supporting these young people to achieve their goals and be able to successfully participate in all areas of life.

We are looking to recruit an experienced, passionate and innovative Occupational Therapist to join the Outpatient Service within Specialist CAMHS working alongside other OT colleagues and a supportive multi-disciplinary team.

The successful candidate will lead on areas of clinical development and offer consultative and supervisory role to others. Alongside case management, the successful candidate will provide specific Occupational Therapy individual and group assessments and interventions.

The post offers excellent opportunities for further development, clinical experience and learning. CAMHS runs internal CPD events and is committed to further development and opportunities for creativity and quality improvements in care delivery. Regular Clinical Supervision and Case reflection opportunities are provided.

The post holder will require excellent communication skills and previous experience of working in mental health or with young people and families.

The successful candidate will be confident in applying evidence-based models of occupational therapy that focus on maintaining and restoring functional ability and occupational participation. As an experienced clinician you will have strong leadership skills and be able to demonstrate evaluation and quality improvement initiatives. You will have strong engagement and motivational skills and be flexible in working with service users with complex mental health needs, their families and support systems.

There may be an occasional requirement to undertake flexible hours such as evening and weekend work. This is to support the CAMHS provision of interventions for families and young people and offer choice for accessing support.
