Rhaid i'r ymgeisydd llwyddiannus fod yn hyblyg, yn hyblyg, ac yn barod i groesawu newid yn ôl yr angen. Mae'r gallu i ddefnyddio menter wrth ddelio â sefyllfaoedd annisgwyl hefyd yn fantais. Dylai ymgeiswyr allu dangos tystiolaeth o'u dealltwriaeth glinigol a'u sgiliau gwneud penderfyniadau; bod yn chwaraewr tîm ymroddedig gyda'r gallu i flaenoriaethu eu llwyth gwaith eu hunain, a gweithio'n dda dan bwysau. Mae sgiliau TG da yn hanfodol gyda hyder mewn agwedd, gair a rhagoriaeth.

Mae’r gallu i siarad Cymraeg yn ddelfrydol ar gyfer y swydd hon; mae croeso i ymgeiswyr sy’n siarad Cymraeg a/neu Saesneg geisio am y swydd hon.

We have an exciting opportunity in Wrexham CAMHS for a Pathway Lead for Secondary Care and Transition. Our vision is to develop a more streamlined approach to practice by developing lead roles across pathways. The Pathway Lead for Secondary Care in CAMHS will have a solid understanding of the Mental Health Measure Wales 2010. You will have experience of managing a caseload of young people with complex mental health needs. In addition you will have experience of being responsible for providing evidence based assessments and therapeutic treatment for these individuals alongside supervising CAMHS Practitioners with complex casework.

Care pathway leads will ensure that a high quality, timely, accessible and evidence-based provision is available to all children and young people who need it. This means establishing and maintaining excellent working relationships with wider social, education, health and voluntary services.

Applicants should have a relevant professional and registered qualification relating to Health or Social Care e.g. in social work, nursing, or Occupational Therapy and a high level of competence, knowledge and skills (underpinned by knowledge of effective risk assessment and relevant evidence-based practice) which is crucial to this role.

The successful applicant must be flexible, adaptable, and have a willingness to embrace change as and when required. The ability to use initiative when dealing with unexpected situations is also an advantage. Applicants should be able to demonstrate evidence of their clinical understanding and decision-making skills; be a committed team player with the ability to prioritise their own workload, and work well under pressure. Good IT skills are essential with confidence in outlook, word and excel.

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