An opportunity has arisen for a well organised and enthusiastic individual to join the recently established Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) team, in HPFT CAMHS. This is a new role in a recently established clinical team and therefore the post holder will require a considerable degree of initiative, possess mature judgement and maintain a friendly and efficient manner when dealing with service users, their relatives, colleagues and visitors.

A good level of competency in using Microsoft Office is required along with the ability to work under pressure, whilst keeping a calm and professional approach. To be successful you will need to demonstrate excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, as well as the ability to work effectively as part of a team. The role is varied and at this early stage of the team’s development there is opportunity to shape the role to meet the team’s requirements.

The DBT Team offer a specialist evidence-based therapeutic approach for young people at high risk, to prevent crises and ensure that young people are in the least restrictive service for their need.

A minimum of 2 year’s relevant experience is required. All applicants will contribute towards the promoting of HPFT values: welcoming, kind, positive, respectful and professional.
