Staff coming into our Children and Young people’s inpatient services will have excellent opportunity for both personal development and career progression.
This is a pivotal role. A strong interest in Children and Young People as a clinical specialty and commitment to collaborative multi-disciplinary working are essential. Applicants will demonstrate exceptional leadership skills, visibility and accessibility to young people, families, their carer's and staff to ensure a caring, effective and responsive service. The post holder will manage all aspects of clinical standards and professional practice within the service and will manage and co-ordinate staff, budget, wider resources and the environment. They will lead and supervise the staff over the 24-hour period. The successful applicant will be included on our Point of Contact rota to ensure provision of service and staffing across Trust sites.
The post involves supporting children, young people and their families to ensure their emotional, physical, educational and recreational needs are met at a difficult time in their lives.
Whilst having knowledge and experience of Children and Young Peoples mental health and learning disability services is desirable having the right values and attitudes and the desire to work in a challenging but rewarding environment is essential.
You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be motivated to engage and adapt to fast-changing patient presentations in a dynamic ward environment. You will be able to demonstrate skills in promoting good relationships and effective communication with children and young people, their relatives and carers, all members of the team, as well as multi-agency colleagues.
We will provide you with a comprehensive induction period and have access to ongoing clinical supervision and appraisal with development review that will provide you with support and the specialist skills required to meet the holistic needs of the children and young people in your care.
If any of these opportunity interest you then we would really like to hear from you. Informal discussions are most welcome.
