Can you hit the ground running
Child and adolescent mental health services in Tower Hamlets are developing. We want the very best services for our children and young people. Thats why we are looking for someone like you.

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.

We are looking for an 8a and Band 7 highly specialised clinical psychologist to join our neurodevelopmental team in Tower Hamlets in further developing and delivering autism services in the Borough. We aim to deliver a comprehensive assessment and treatment service to young people and their families who have a neurodevelopmental disorder. We have strong links in the borough with the Community Paediatric Service, Children with Disabilities teams, National autistic society locally as well as with a specialist school in the Borough for children with autism.

The service embraces continual improvement and the staff and management team have a high degree of enthusiasm for quality improvement. This post is based primarily in our busy neurodevelopmental team.

It will be of particular value if you come to the service with knowledge, clinical expertise and experience of working with children and young people with neurodevelopmental problems, ASD and ADHD.

Successful applicants 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.

You will have the qualifications and experience to work in a busy and sometimes challenging Tier 2/3 CAMHS.For more information please contact:
