Are you looking for a new challenge where you can make a difference in the lives of children and young people. We are looking for a clinician who is creative, highly motivated, shows initiative and passionate and committed for ensuring high quality services for people with mental health needs.

We have an exciting opportunity for a Nurse, Occupational Therapist or Social Worker to join Surrey & Borders NHS Foundation Trust (SABP) as an Urgent Care Pathway Clinician in the Children and Young People Services Community Team based in the East of Surrey.

The post holder will be able to offer a range of therapeutic interventions appropriate to the care pathway the young person is on.

This role requires a high level of skill in crisis management, risk management, safeguarding and liaison with other agencies, professional and voluntary. The role requires the ability to operate with a high degree of professional autonomy but work collaboratively with other members of the team and wider network to formulate and treat children, adolescents, and their families.

As part of a busy CYPS Directorate and alongside our Alliance Partnership including local voluntary sector organisations, you will be supporting the team in leading with the implementation and embedding of the THRIVE Framework across the newly created CAMHS Intensive Intervention Team in Surrey.
