Are you someone who is innovative and enjoys a challenge? We have an exciting new opportunity to lead on our emerging Digital Pathway and manage a team of remote therapists. This role will involve utilising skills in people management, creativity, strategic planning and continued clinical practice. Following on from the pandemic we have learned that the remote delivery of therapy has many advantages for the population we serve alongside providing flexibility for the workforce and italk is passionate about advancing our provision. We are looking for a new member to join our team, who is committed, enthusiastic and willing to contribute to the service and embrace different ways of working as we move more into a digital age.

Although the post is offered as remote/home working, the service provides regular contact in the form of group and one to one meeting to encourage interaction within a highly supportive and caring team. If you are living in the local area and would like to discuss blended working to combine some ‘in-person’ client work, we are happy to discuss this.

Following significant investment, SHFT is expanding and enhancing its Hampshire Psychological Therapies service (IAPT) - italk. As part of the service development, italk has completed a structure review to significantly enhance the management structure, creating an exciting opportunity for a Remote Clinical Team Manager to join the team and manage the remote team.

This is an exciting and varied role, with opportunities to demonstrate innovation and leadership qualities. As a senior member of the team, you will assist the Clinical Lead Service Managers and Senior Leadership team in the operational and clinical implementation of the Hampshire Psychological Therapies Service. Key responsibilities within the role will be to provide supportive line management and high-quality supervision, coordination of clinical provision and patient care within the remote team. You will also have an opportunity to maintain Clinical work, delivering CBT/ EMDR and other evidence-based treatments within your role. In addition, the post holder will contribute to the overall operational management of the IAPT service and primary care service developments across Hampshire in line with national programme targets and system transformation requirements. The post sits within a supportive team with opportunities for both Management and Clinical supervision.

You will receive excellent support in this role, including skills development and regular supervision. You will be joining a friendly and dynamic team. We are committed to recruiting not only people with the right skills, but also the right values to support effective learning, team working and excellent patient care and experience.
