Child and adolescent mental health services in Tower Hamlets are changing. We want the very best services for our children and young people. In conjunction with partners in commissioning, health, social care and education, we are designing an outcome-based service where all provider agencies will work together to provide the highest quality service to our clients.

The service embraces continual improvement and the staff and management team have a high degree of enthusiasm for quality improvement. The emotional and behavioral team assesses and treats a variety of children, families & young people in this busy East London CAMHS. The team aims to offer an accessible, flexible, timely and responsive CAMHS input to children, young people and their families, and their referrers.

The successful applicant will be based at the Emanuel Miller Centre near Limehouse, though will also attend weekly meetings at the Greatorex Street Clinic. They will be part of a multidisciplinary team offering goal based episodes of care to young people, children and families presenting with a variety of challenges.

We are looking for good communicators with energy, motivation and enthusiasm; the ability to work with individuals and families with complex difficulties and to work effectively with multi-disciplinary and multi-agency contexts; flexibility of approach; commitment to evidence-based practice; and, the pursuit of the highest possible quality of service.

It is a challenging, exciting and deeply rewarding job and we look forward to hearing from candidates who have the qualifications and experience to work in a busy and sometimes challenging Tier 3 CAMHS, and who want to extend their experience and knowledge of working in specialised and innovative ways.
