Job Description

This is a new and innovative opportunity to work across Ormiston Families Supporting Smiles mental health and wellbeing service in Norfolk and our YOUnited mental health and wellbeing service in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.

You will provide cohesive clinical leadership and oversight across Ormiston Families mental health services, supporting the mental health Operations Managers in the ongoing development of clinically safe, robust and effective provision and supervision.

Our YOUnited Service - a new partnership has been established to transform and bring together mental and emotional health services for children and young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Centre 33 and Ormiston Families are joining their expertise in therapeutic support alongside Cambridge and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust and Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust. The partnership is committed to using the THRIVE framework of Getting Advice, Getting Help, Getting More Help and Risk Support.

Supporting Smiles has held the tier 2 CAMHS CYP contract to deliver mental health services to young people and families for over a decade. We offer high quality 1:1 therapy and early intervention programmes to children and young people between the ages of 4-16 who experience social, emotional, and behavioural challenges. We also offer parent led interventions and family-based support. We work collaboratively across an innovative alliance of partner providers in the processing of referrals for those aged 0-25, sharing expertise, learning and resources. Our service comprises over 100 staff including Childrens Wellbeing Practitioners, Counsellors, CBT therapists, Social Workers, referral coordinators, managers, and administrators. You will be joining us at a pivotal time as we are expanding and diversifying our workforce to become fully child centred and needs led.

Your skills will help us develop and lead our diverse team, and ensure we can provide a responsive, high-quality service. You will be expected to work collaboratively with colleagues as well as external stakeholders. As a valued member of our clinical leadership team, you will help us to ensure the team runs smoothly and provide effective leadership and management of staff and resources.

Staff wellbeing is a top priority for us. We have a very active Wellbeing team within the organisation and work hard to ensure that a supportive, collaborative and productive culture is in place.

Your base location will be our hub in central Norwich, and you may be expected and encouraged to spend time with our various teams across the county. You will also have a base at our Cambridgeshire and Peterborough centres, spending time with the teams in that area.
