We are looking for an experienced Specialist Practitioner who can demonstrate a relevant professional registration (Nurse, OT, Social worker)  to work in the Adult ADHD service. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a developing team. 

With the support of the clinicians in the team, the post-holder will be responsible for: assisting in the provision of a specialist assessment; consultation and treatment service to adults with ADHD  and their families and/or carers; supervision and training of other mental health and partner professions as required across the Trust region; and line management of staff. In addition to an appropriate professional qualification, applicants would be expected to be able to demonstrate a genuine interest regarding this client group and ideally experience of working with people with ADHD but not essential as full training given.  

We are community based and work Monday to Friday 9-5. We are based at Petherton Resource Centre but successful applicant will be expected to work at locations in Wiltshire around once to twice a week with  clinician.  

Adult ADHD is poorly recognised and like autism was in the early 1990s, it is a rapidly growing phenomenon. We feel we are very fortunate in that we are at the head of a growing field of understanding and treatment of the condition, with a truly multidisciplinary, holistic approach being ideal. We design our own care protocols in line with academic and national standards, and we are allied to at least five PCTs, serving a total population of 1.6 million people. 

We anticipate a successful applicant bringing their creativity, commitment, and energy to our already thriving atmosphere here. We will be expanding our service over the next 12 months and we truly believe we have the blueprint of a national centre of excellence in managing this disorder. We need you to bring your skills and energy, to make this a working reality. In return you have the chance to work with one of the genuinely most interesting and rewarding patient populations to treat.
