Birmingham Children’s Trust is going from strength to strength. We are the largest provider of family support and social care services for children, young people and families in the country. Our goal is to become a centre of excellence in both social care and family support. We recognise that many of the children and families we work with will have experienced varying degrees of trauma. We want to support our workforce by bringing psychology and social work practice together, supporting our staff in working in a trauma informed context, helping families to overcome their adversity, building sustained resilience and improving life chances.
The successful candidate will be the lead clinical psychologist and consultant for the Trust. They will work with the Director of Practice in developing psychologically informed approaches to assessment, care planning and direct intervention; helping to drive better outcomes for children receiving social work and social care services.
The post holder will regularly work with the Executive of the Trust to ensure that our staff are equipped to work in a stable and supported environment.
The role will work closely with the practice hub to ensure resources tailored for practice improvement and workforce development are delivered within a psychological evidence base.
There will be opportunities for the post holder to complete some clinical work to ensure that they keep informed of current practice.
The challenges are big, but the opportunities are great! In return we offer up to 34 days annual leave, a bespoke leadership programme, a final salary pension and a range of employee benefits which we will be developing further.
Remote interviews will be held on Tuesday 24 November 2020.
