We are looking for experienced CAMHS practitioners with a passion for delivering early intervention and prevention support to children, young people and their families. Following a successful pilot, we have received funding to grow our service of family wellbeing practitioners across North Wales. In central area we have four Band 7 posts available, based in the county of Anglesey and Gwynedd.

The family wellbeing practitioner is an experienced CAMHS practitioner aligned with a cluster of primary care GP surgeries. The practitioner offers training and consultation to primary care practitioners,  in addition to providing direct advice and brief intervention to children, young people and their families presenting with concerns about emotional wellbeing. The practitioner will work in partnership with, and alongside, other services and settings in the local community who provide support for children, young people and families.

We are looking for clinicians with substantial knowledge in child and adolescent development and early intervention and prevention strategies to improve emotional wellbeing. The successful candidate will have well developed assessment and formulation skills, the ability to provide both broad and specific advice in relation to emotional health and wellbeing in children and mental health and developmental disorders. The ability to support children and young people by supporting other professionals through teaching and consultation is essential for this post. The successful candidate will also be able to demonstrate a commitment to safe, evidence based and efficient practice and will be committed to providing a compassionate and person centred approach.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to implement, develop, and enhance the model within their clusters with the support of the health board cluster-coordinators, CAMHS teams, operational and clinical leads, and family wellbeing practitioner peers. If successful, you will receive a full induction, clinical supervision and line management. Opportunities for continuous professional development will be provided. Post holders will be aligned with the local CAMHS team and will maintain a close relationship (weekly) with our CAMHS SPoA, assessment team, and broader CAMHS MDT.

The service is situated in Anglesey and Gwynedd, which is a beautiful part of the country with diverse landscapes ranging for from countryside to coast to mountain ranges. The west location has a mix of rural areas and larger towns. Whether you enjoy relaxing or more active recreational activities, there are many opportunities to indulge your interests from climbing, walking and coastal adventures to accessing the arts. We are within an hour of cities such as Bangor, Chester and Liverpool. BCUHB has a re-location package for those looking to move into our local communities.

If this sounds like you, and you are keen to be part of an exciting new service development in partnership with a welcoming CAMHS service in North Wales, we would really like to hear from you.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
