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.
  
Nottingham City Council are also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of Children and Vulnerable Adults and we expect all workers to share in this commitment.
  
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.
  
We have a fantastic opportunity that may suit an Educational Psychologist (secondment could be considered if based within NCC remaining on Soulbury Pay Scale), Clinical Psychologist (registered with HCPC and BPS) or an Accredited CBT Therapist (BABCP) with expertise in offering Evidenced Based interventions for Children and Young People.  Having experience of working directly with schools to foster a whole school approach to Mental Health is desirable.  Knowledge of Nice Guidance and recommended treatment options is essential and experience of delivering CBT or other evidenced based treatment is essential.  Supervision will be provided as required for sustained professional registration.
  
This role involves being the strategic and clinical lead (Service Manager) for the Mental Health Support Teams in Nottingham City.  The MHST team in Nottingham City is a Multidiscipline team with CBT therapists, Systemic Family Practitioners and qualified low intensity workers (EEBP, EMHPs and CWPs).  It is expected that the lead will work with wider stakeholders including the educational directorate, educational psychology service, schools, CAMHS and third party sectors leading the expansion across Nottingham City from two teams to five over the next 18 months.
  
Mental Health Support Teams are based in educational settings and aim to support educational providers in embedding a Whole School Approach to Mental Health, support Mental Health Link workers in education to be able to access the right support for Children and Young People and their families at the right time and also provide early interventions either 1-1, parent led or groups for CYP.  We are a creative team with CYP at the forefront of our minds. Our logo and posters were developed by CYP competition entries which were judged by MH2K young advisors.  We engaged earlier this year with Nottingham Trent University in their Grads4Nottm challenge and had x2 groups accept our challenges. One team worked on developing an animation we can share and educational settings can play in their reception areas to destigmatise mental health and the other team worked on improving our webpage. We have worked collaboratively with CAMHS and the Educational Psychology Service to develop and deliver our Wellbeing for Education Return offer. We are soon to engage in a trial with Oxford University offering an online Parent Led intervention for anxiety. We are also looking at piloting an online intervention for anxiety for CYP both primary and secondary age. We want to offer as much choice to CYP as possible.
  
We are looking for someone with experience in working with Children, Young People and their families and the educational system. The role includes responsibility for the strategic oversight and development of the team and ensuring that the service is being delivered effectively. The service is creative in thinking about how we can best meet the needs of our educational communities and specialist interests and the development of bespoke interventions is actively encouraged.
  
ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS: 

  • Practitioner Psychologist registered with the HCPC or accredited CBT therapist with the BABCP
  • Experience of working with educational providers and awareness of system change.
  • Ability to lead and manage others.
  • Significant experience as a mental health or educational professional working with Children, young people and their families.
  • Ability to apply creative and critical thinking skills in a clinical context including the development of resources.
