Northpoint Wellbeing are an independent charity which provides a range of wellbeing services. The organisation has been commissioned to provide part of Calderdale CAMHS since 2014. We have recently received funding to expand our innovative mental health in schools project.

The aim of the project is to develop a skilled workforce in schools. The practitioner will not hold a clinical caseload but will work alongside school staff to equip them with tools and resources to help students and families manage the emotional impact of transition from primary to secondary school.

The role will be flexible and varied and will include the provision of training, advice and guidance. Staff will be supported to implement strategies, make appropriate referrals, develop their whole-school approach to wellbeing, and improve outcomes for young people.

The role will largely be school based and will link closely with Northpoint's skilled, supportive and friendly team. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced practitioner who wants to be involved in shaping an innovative new project and help to improve the lives of young people in Calderdale.

Please see the job description, person specification and information sheet for further details. For an informal discussion after reading the recruitment pack please contact Joe Hanney on 07981 873 758.

This is a rolling recruitment process which will end when a suitable candidate is appointed. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply quickly.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
