An exciting opportunity has arisen within Dorset HealthCare for a dynamic Service Manager and Clinical Lead to join our Southampton Steps to Wellbeing (IAPT) service. Dorset HealthCare’s Steps to Wellbeing services are some of the Country’s leading Improving Access to Psychological Therapies services and this would be a great opportunity for an experienced clinician with excellent clinical leadership to take this service forward.

The Southampton Steps to Wellbeing service is a high performing, high volume service with a dedicated team of clinicians and administrators working across Southampton City. The successful candidate will need to have strong leadership skills with a focus on continual service development and improvement.

You will be joining the team at an exciting time of development; as part of the Five Year Forward View, the service will be expanding to work with people who have Long Term Health Conditions such as Diabetes and COPD. The service has also recently expanded its provision of an integrated employment service.

The successful candidate will need to be able to build strong relationships with Commissioners and with stakeholders and ensure that the service continues to adhere to a number of challenging targets whilst maintaining the highest quality care for our patients. An understanding of PbR would be advantageous.

You will be well supported within a team of experienced clinicians and managers and be part of the IAPT leadership team within the newly created Directorate of Mental Health and Learning Disabilities.

You will need the ability to form excellent relationships with staff, stakeholders and commissioners and ensure that the voice of people who access our services is at the heart of service delivery. The successful candidate would be expected to provide a limited caseload offering complex assessment, psychological therapy, advice and consultation on case management, therefore we are looking for a candidate who is professionally accredited with training to post graduate level.

Consideration will be given to offering this post at Band 8a level as a development opportunity for a candidate who has prior team management and leadership skills and relevant experience.

Interviews will be held on 18th or 19th December.
