This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the set-up of new early intervention mental health provision for all schools in Islington. Together, two new mental health support teams (MHSTs) will ultimately provide a service to all the borough's schools by January 2021.

We are seeking two talented and experienced administrators with strong organisational and communication skills to support the delivery of this programme of work through to March 2021. The successful candidates will support one of the MHSTs (north/south) through the programme's key stages: the initial set up, the development phase and then to be fully embedded across all schools (primary, secondary, PRUs and alternative provision),  by January 2021, gradually increasing from working with 18 schools from February 2020. 

Each team will comprise four education mental health practitioners (EMHPs), to be trained throughout 2020, a CAMHS supervisor, a CAMHS clinician and an education psychologist (0.5), as well as the administrator role. The teams will be managed by a senior CAMHS service manager and a commissioning manager.

You will need to develop processes to collect and collate data, working with NHS data sets, and support with the completion of a quarterly return to funders in NHS England and the DfE. You will also set up and manage a team diary, supporting the clinicians/practitioners with making appointments.  

Building and maintaining good relationships will be key to the smooth running of the service: you will liaise with the MHST staff, other CAMHS clinicians, CAMHS administrators, staff in the host school and other schools, children and young people and their parents who may be referred to the service. You will also work closely with the Commissioning Manager.

It is envisaged that the role will be mainly based in a host school, with some time spent at the CAMHS central base. You will work fairly independently for much of the time in the school setting.

If you are excited about working in partnership to support the improvement of mental health of children and young people, then this is the ideal service for you.
