We’ve got an exciting opportunity available for talented individuals to join our workforce - perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Read on to find out more…
     
Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and we are continually working around the clock to deliver services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
     
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services and recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
     
We will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
     
Nottingham City Council is committed to recruiting a talented workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are a fair and inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and with different abilities. We recruit for diversity and value difference.
     
We particularly want to hear from you if you are from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community, identify within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community (LGBT) and if you are Disabled - these groups of people are underrepresented in our workforce, and we’d like to reflect our local population more through our recruitment processes.
     
We have always been open to flexible working and the COVID-19 pandemic provided us with some new options to work in a completely different way. We welcome a conversation about flexible working at the point of interview.
    
Nottingham City Council’s Multi Systemic Therapy Child Abuse and Neglect (MST CAN) Team are looking for the ideal candidate to join our team as an MST CAN Therapist.  MST CAN is a home-based intensive treatment for families with children and young people subject to a Child Protection Plan under the category of neglect or physical harm. It is an evidenced based treatment that has been developed to work with families with complex needs, in order to increase safety and keep children at home.  MST CAN works to address specific problems and risk factors that brought the family to the attention of Children’s Social Care. The major goals are to keep families together, assure that children are safe, prevent abuse and neglect and reduce mental health difficulties experienced by adults and children and increase natural support networks.
    
MST CAN adopts an intensive approach (numerous sessions per week) and works with families in their natural ecology (their home, school and wider community) rather than in a clinical setting. Appointments are made to meet the family’s needs and an MST CAN practitioner is available 24/7 to all families in treatment through an on call facility.
     
You will have a professional qualification in a relevant field and also have experience and knowledge of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Family Therapy, and/or pragmatic behavioural interventions. Full training and continuous professional development in the MST CAN model will be provided. Therapists receive weekly group supervision from the MST CAN Manager and clinical consultation from MST Services.
     
ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS: 
  • Qualified to post graduate level in relevant field, e.g. social work, clinical/forensic psychology, mental health nursing/health specialism or relevant equivalent.
  • Strong understanding and practical experience of the case management process including assessment, analysis, planning and intervention and review and how it promotes good outcomes for children and families
  • Significant experience of family based interventions with young people.
  • Experience of direct use of a therapeutic model of working with families e.g. CBT, SFBT, systemic family therapy or behavioural approaches
  • Sophisticated understanding and demonstrable experience of all aspects of safeguarding and management of risk to children and young people as they relate to the work of the team.
       
This post is subject to an Enhanced DBS check  
        
This role requires you to participate in the on call rota.
