About the role

Location: Hove, East Sussex, United Kingdom

Earnings: £46,200 per annum, pro rata

We are a charity working to transform the lives of vulnerable young people, working to prevent youth homelessness and provide a home to 763 young people every night. We reach a further 10,000 young people and their families through our other key services, such as counselling, support and advice, mediation and youth work. This is challenging yet rewarding work that helps the young people we support to belong, contribute, and thrive. You can hear our inspiring Young People's Stories HERE.

The Role

We are looking for a permanent, part-time (22.5 hours per week) Clinical Lead Manager. This crucial role will provide clinical leadership to school counsellors and hold a cross-service brief to provide support to our small, dedicated group of clinical supervisors who provide clinical and reflective practice supervision. Our clinical leads work closely with the Head of Clinical Development to develop and implement service wide standards framework and ensure clinical safety and excellence.

The postholder will provide dynamic leadership, motivating and inspiring Dialogue's clinical and operational staff to deliver the best therapeutic experience for children and young people. You will participate as a senior clinician in the development of a high quality, responsive and accessible service for clients, their carers and families. This will include advising both service and professional management on those aspects of the service where psychological and/or organisational matters need addressing. There is scope for you to undertake practice within the service to maintain your own clinical proficiency.

Your expected working pattern will be flexible but working on Wednesdays will be required. This role is hybrid and involves a combination of working on site and from home. There will be some expectation of attending meetings at Reed House occasionally.

Who You Are

YMCA Dialogue are looking for a unique individual to join our clinical team who has a passion for delivering high quality children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing services. You will need to have either doctoral level training in applied psychology (or its equivalent for those trained prior to 1996 or outside the UK), approved by and professionally registered with the HCPC or post-graduate level training, with further experience and/or training in a recognised psychological therapy, leading to a recognised professional accreditation. We are looking for a candidate that has vision and a flare for service development, as well as an eye for detail. Our ideal candidate has significant experience as a mental health professional, including substantial expert clinical knowledge, personal and professional authority and experience of managing services and developing people, ideally within mental health or primary care services.

We know that there are great candidates who will not fit everything we have described above, or who have important skills we have not mentioned. If that is you, please do not hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
