This is an exciting role for a Senior Child and Adolescent Therapist who is passionate about helping children and young people achieve their full potential.

You will be joining the UP Team as well as playing a key role in the team at Roundwood, they are both utterly committed to transforming life chances of children through preventative work that supports children with social, emotional and mental health needs.  You will also work closely alongside a second therapist, and in partnership with a number of agencies, in particular health and educational professionals, the Police, CAMHS and social care.

You will be working within the school holding a caseload of children and young people with complex, multiple needs, supporting them both through formal one-to-one therapy sessions and by offering more general therapeutic support, thinking and linking within the school, particularly where children find it hard to attend therapy sessions. These children may be on the role of a mainstream school with the plan of a phased return, or they may be staying at Roundwood to complete the rest of their education, so interventions will need to be targeted and both short and longer-term.

In this role, you will draw on your experience as a qualified therapist alongside your excellent organisational and relationship management skills to effectively drive the therapeutic work, working flexibly and responsively within the school to create strong outcomes for our children.
