Do you have a strong background as a Clinical Psychologist delivering services for children and young people’s emotional and mental health?

Do you have the leadership skills to manage a multi-disciplinary clinical team and shape the clinical direction of a large and busy service?

Action for Children are looking for an experienced, creative and dynamic Clinical Psychologist to join their early intervention Mental Health Support Teams across Derbyshire and Derby City.

We run six Mental Health Support Teams across Derby and Derbyshire delivering programmes of one to one, group, digital and family support-based interventions, with an emphasis on building resilience in children and young people, working with the system around the child, supporting good attachment and establishing evidence-based outcomes.

The service works with children and young people who have mild to moderate mental health needs but who do not meet the thresholds for CAMHS or other higher intervention services. These children and young people often present with mental health difficulties such as anxiety and low mood. In order to help the young people we support develop to their full potential. You will:

  • Drive the Service’s clinical strategy, development and ongoing clinical direction.
  • Lead in research, for example in researching new practice and therapeutic modes.
  • Deliver specialist training and supervision.
  • Lead, inspire and motivate your multi-disciplinary clinical team to hold the highest aspirations for children and young people.
  • Work closely with the Children’s Services Manager to lead the service.
  • Liaise closely with our partners and commissioners to ensure compliance and excellence.

We will actively support you in your role and provide you and your team with development and clinical supervision.
