Clinical Team Leader – PWP


Trent PTS is undertaking a complete redesign of our service delivery model at step 2 and an exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior PWP to lead on the delivery of this Service development. Trent PTS is the largest IAPT provider across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We have an excellent track record of delivering evidence based psychological therapies as part of the local IAPT provision. We provide a high-quality, professional and tailored service to people with anxiety and depressive disorders, offering a wider range of treatment choices and easy-access to effective and evidence based psychological therapies.

Due to our on-going expansion, we are recruiting a senior PWP to develop our Low Intensity Service and lead a team of qualified and trainee PWPs in the delivery of Low Intensity Interventions across all delivery platforms. This post is an opportunity for a full time PWP to join a dynamic team of psychotherapists in delivering stepped care IAPT services to our clients in Notts and Derbys areas.

The post is open to all qualified PWPs with extensive experience of delivering Low Intensity Primary Care mental health therapy and of providing clinical leadership, case management and clinical supervision. If you are an engaging, committed and professional therapist you could work for Trent PTS and help us to continue to provide psychological interventions as part of the National IAPT program within the stepped care model. It is essential that you can conduct high-quality primary care assessments as well as being able to formulate, plan and monitor effective treatment plans for clients with a broad range of common mental health problems with a focus on rehabilitation and patient autonomy.

You will be a highly motivated experienced professional who has proven leadership skills and who can demonstrate an excellent understanding of Low Intensity Interventions across all delivery platforms. You must be able to work autonomously in order to take the lead in the development of an effective and innovative step 2 service across Trent PTS services. You will join the operational management team of High Intensity Team Leaders, Senior Employment Advisor and Business Relationship Co-ordinator under the direction of the Locality Service Manager.

As an organisation, we invest in our staff to make sure they can continue offering excellent clinical services. This means that we provide outstanding clinical supervision and CPD to meet requirements of continued accreditation. Trent PTS offers a wide range of clinical skills training using internal expertise, external trainers and established post-graduate university courses to ensure that all staff can access a high level of continued professional development opportunities. This includes accredited supervision courses, specific supplementary clinical trainings such as EMDR, behavioural couples and STDP as well as a variety of clinical skills trainings such as psychosexual practice, working with complex presentations and long-term conditions.
