In December 2017, the Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision green paper introduced a new policy to create Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs) to work with children and staff in education settings.

As part of this exciting development, a new opportunity has arisen for an experienced Manager to lead our new HPFT CAMHS Mental Health Support Team Service. You will be the lead for the implementation of the programme within the Trust. We currently have 4 Mental Health Support Teams across Hertfordshire with the expectation that this service will grow over time in line with the National programme.

It is essential you hold a relevant clinical qualification and have previous experience of working in a specialist or early help CAMHS team. In addition you will ideally also have experience of working in an educational setting with the ability to provide clinical supervision, and offer line management to our Team Leaders.

We are looking for a talented and experienced CAMHS professional to lead and establish this new service. It is a great opportunity to join a well established and highly respected CAMHS Service. You will be joining an “Outstanding” CQC rated service and organisation which offers excellent training and development opportunities and welcomes innovation and forward thinking.

You will be responsible for the delivery of a high quality and responsive CAMHS service and for implementing and reviewing systems, policies, standards and procedures within frameworks agreed by the Trust, partner agencies and Commissioners.

The role will provide a genuine opportunity for you to further develop your existing management skills and make a difference to the service we provide. We are looking for someone who has a real passion for working with children and young people and who wants to make a difference. We are looking to appoint a driven, enthusiastic and forward thinking manager who can lead by example and truly engage both colleagues and service users.

You’ll have substantial management experience within the NHS, and significant experience of working with clinicians and leading multi-disciplinary teams to achieve service improvement. It will be a challenging role but rewarding and we believe it will provide a talented and ambitious manager with real scope to develop and influence practice.

If you think you meet our needs we would welcome an application from you.
