We are seeking a  skilled and experienced practitioner to take on the role of Clinical Specialist within Thinking Allowed.

Thinking Allowed is a long established, small, specialist CAMHS team that works with children who are Looked After by Bristol City Council or are adopted and the professionals and carers / parents who support these children. The children have experienced abuse, neglect and trauma and present with the complex behavioural, emotional, health and developmental needs associated with such histories. The work is complex, emotionally challenging and interesting.

As a Clinical Specialist, you will show enthusiasm, humour and acceptance and will have excellent and extensive clinical knowledge and therapeutic skills with children and young people who are looked after and adopted. Alongside the Clinical Lead, you will play an important part in guiding the team to facilitate and provide assessments of the psychological/ emotional health of children and young people looked after or adopted. Your specialist knowledge will contribute to the multi disciplinary team, multi agency meetings and consultations with carers, adoptive parents, social workers and other professionals. You will engage in some direct therapeutic work, will have a supervisory role with other team members and will contribute to presentations and training events for other professionals and carers / parents as required.  

If you want to improve the outcomes for Bristol’s Looked After and adopted children, meet the application criteria (see Job Description and Person Specification) and are interested in this position we look forward to receiving your application.

Interviews are being held on Thursday 10th October 2019 in Bristol
