We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, well-motivated, forward thinking clinician to work as part of our Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) - West Quadrant, working with young people with mental health problems living in West Hertfordshire (St. Albans and Hemel Hempstead). The team is multi-disciplinary and provides specialist assessments, treatment and interventions for young people suffering from moderate to severe complex emotional, behavioural and psychological issues resulting in mental health problems. CAMHS is a community based team, providing treatment and intervention within the clinic, home, school and other suitable community bases.

If you enjoy working within a team who is passionate about children and young people's mental health, enjoy a challenge and have a flexible approach, then we would like to hear from you. You will work as part of a team but will need to be confident in your own clinical decision making skills. You will work with a range of professionals from a variety of different agencies including social care, acute care and a range of community and voluntary sector partners.

The role can be demanding but also highly rewarding so you will need to be someone who is motivated, resilient and passionate about working with this client group; an experienced CAMHS clinician who is able to manage own caseload, with an emphasis on during brief therapy as well as longer term specialist intervention.

The Trust is keen to promote learning and development opportunities and for the right candidate we are able to offer a number of different developmental / training opportunities.
