Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH) is one of the leading mental health trusts in the UK.

Serving a population of 1.2million people, the Trust employs around 4750 people who make a difference across 130 locations. Situated in one of the most exciting and affordable cities in Europe, GMMH provides community and inpatient mental health care, alongside substance misuse services across the North West.

GMMH is one of the most active research trusts in the UK, with one of the highest levels of recruitment to clinical trials for mental health. This puts our staff and service users at the leading edge of new mental health treatments.

The Trust provides a range of specialist services including prison in reach across the North of England, a specialist centre for mental health and deafness and in patient perinatal mental health care.

We have been rated ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commission. Our substance misuse services and leadership were rated as ‘Outstanding’

A new opportunity has arisen within the Forensic CAMHS North West service. The FCAMHS initiative aims to improve the outcomes for children where there are concerns about their mental health and development and their potential risk to others.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced unqualified clinician to join the existing multi-professional team in the role of a Band 4 Clinical Engagement Worker. The post holder will support senior team members in the undertaking of assessments, the writing of clinical assessment and reports, engage with families and external agencies, and be involved in wider service evaluations, projects and research.

The post holder will be expected to be primarily within the F CAMHS NW team, based at the GMMH Prestwich site. As a regional team, there is an expectation the post holder will be able to drive and attend meetings or assessments throughout the North West. It is essential they have experience of working with young people and families, who are reluctant to engage with services and they have experience of being involved in a service evaluation and performance reporting.

The post holder will form part of a team that works closely with the senior managers and clinicians to maintain a trauma informed system that supports mental health and well-being of the team and influences the systems of governance and management around them.

FCAMHS is part of a new NHS England service that is independently evaluated. It is expected that each team member has an active role in the collection and communication of relevant outcomes to evaluate the effectiveness of this new service.

The post holder will link with other professionals and agencies in the wider system to ensure integrated care provision across health, social care, education and criminal justice services to optimise the outcomes for young people and their families. The post holder may be asked to work in other services within the specialist CAMHS group in response to service or staff changes and take on additional duties as required.
