Dorset HealthCare Trust is the main provider of Children and Young People’s Emotional Health and Wellbeing Services across Dorset.

Poole Core-Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service is currently going through a transformation and development programme. The service is working closely with the Borough of Poole to expand Early Help services for children, young people and families in Poole. This has created a new and exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated individual who has experience of working with young people and their families with mental health difficulties.

We are looking to recruit an Integrated Emotional Health and Wellbeing Practitioner to join our established multi-disciplinary Child & Adolescent Mental Health Team; the post will be deployed as an integrated role within the Borough’s existing Early Help Services for 5-19 year olds. The post is full time, and is offered on a three year fixed term basis or internal secondment to begin with.

The post holder will provide Primary Mental Health expertise into early help, intervention and preventative services across the Borough of Poole.  You will provide brief intervention via both one to one and group sessions to identified children, young people and families working alongside multi-agency statutory and voluntary agencies to develop integration of service provision within the locality.

The post holder will be required to work with local communities and agencies to enable identification of emotional health and wellbeing needs and will be required to provide specialist training and education relating to the emotional health and well-being of children and adolescents and treatment interventions to other professionals in multi-agency teams and community settings.

It is essential that you have a professional nursing, social work or occupational therapy qualification and experience of working with children & young people with mental health problems.  A post training qualification in a therapeutic intervention would be an advantage.

Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.  The DBS levies a charge of £44 and the Trust will recover this cost in instalments from your first 3 salary payments.  This will only apply to candidates who are new to the Trust and not internal staff. Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.  

Interviews are scheduled to take place on 30th June 2018.
