Salary Range: starting from £31,371 progressing to £33,799 pa (pro rata for part-time)
Hours: 22 per week, Term Time only
Contract: Fixed Term or Secondment opportunity until July 2020

Job Duties:
The Safe Space service is continuing to develop and expand due to increased demand from schools and our partner services across Health and Social Care. Successful applicants will become part of a county-wide professional, quality assured and confidential therapy service for children and young people aged 4-25 years.  The role will generally be based within schools, but will also include delivering some sessions in other locations. The caseload will be varied, dealing with a wide range of issues facing Hertfordshire children and young people in order to promote positive emotional health and well-being.

The role is countywide and a flexible approach to location is required.  Additional Countywide travel will be required to attend training and clinical team meetings and therefore access to transport is essential.

The successful applicant must be qualified to Diploma level and BACP (or equivalent body) accredited.  Play Therapy training and experience of delivering therapy to children and young people is also essential.

In return we are offering a flexible approach to working hours and a rewarding opportunity to help children and young people build the resilience to cope with the difficulties they face.

For further information please contact Maria Nastri (Safe Space Manager), Terina Brennan-Slade (Safe Space Assistant Manager), or the Safe Space Office on 01992 588796.
