You would lead on one of our pathways, and offer supervision to other CAMHS staff. You will be working autonomously within professional guidelines and the overall framework of the teams' policies and procedures. Additionally you will be utilising research skills for audit, and support the proposal and implementation of policy changes within the area served by the team/service.

Your own training and development needs are important to us and we hope to support you within this as much as possible through systems of supervision and appraisal, and via your analysis of the work you are being asked to do.
