Delivering great care, achieving great outcomes – together

Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) is a successful provider of mental health and learning disability services delivering services, rated Outstanding by CQC. We are a Values Based organisation and our aim is to ensure that we deliver an experience that is consistently welcoming, kind, positive, respectful and professional, because these are the Values that our service users, Carers and staff told us meant the most to them.

Working closely with the local DBT leads, this post offers an exciting opportunity to join an established group of therapists who provide a local DBT service, as well as joining the wider network of therapists, locally and across the trust. The service works to meet the needs of service users who are experiencing significant difficulties with emotional instability and working within the local multi-disciplinary community teams. We pride ourselves on the quality of the service that we offer and place importance on supporting all our therapists to provide great care, with an emphasis placed on maintaining and developing therapist skills and regular supervision.

We now have a vacancy for a band 7 DBT therapist to cover sickness absence. Hours are negotiable, but we particularly need someone to run a DBT skills group which was scheduled to take place in the evenings to assist patients who work or have other commitments. The group will take place remotely. There are possibilities for the post holder to also take on some individual therapy / assessments depending on their other commitments.

This post would suit someone with a core mental health qualification and registration (including nursing, social work, occupational therapy, practitioner psychologist or other appropriately registered therapists - see person spec for details) and with an interest of working collaboratively with service users (and their families) to develop their skills to improve their ability to tolerate and manage strong emotion. Also it would suit someone who loves working as part of a therapy team and alongside multidisciplinary colleagues. We are looking for someone who has experience of working with this service user group in community settings. They will need to have completed training in DBT to at least the Foundation level.
