At Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust we are looking for people to join us who share our values and those of the NHS.

The Role

This opportunity is for an Advanced DBT Practitioner to join a newly established DBT Service within HPFT CAMHS in part-time fixed term post to cover maternity leave until mid-September 2020. We would also welcome applications from those within HPFT with the relevant DBT training interested in a secondment opportunity.

The team is in its early inception and therefore the post holder will have opportunity not only to work clinically with young people with complex mental health problems, but also to be part of the ongoing development of this innovative team in an "Outstanding" rated Trust.

We are looking for an experienced and dynamic professional, who already has training in delivering DBT and has experience of delivering a full DBT programme. This is an exciting opportunity for any candidate who wants to be part of an ambitious and energetic organisation and a high profile national programme, with a focus on empowering individuals and ensuring the very best clinical and individual recovery outcomes.

The post is part of an exciting expansion of CAMHS specialist services within HPFT, supported by NHS England's innovative 'Testing New Care Models in tertiary mental health services' programme (Wave 2). Our new model of care for Tertiary Services has been designed to transform local service provision in Hertfordshire by integrating the Tier 4 and Tier 3 CAMHS pathways, to ensure that young people across the county can access the services that meet their needs at the right time.
