The Brent Centre for Young People is looking for a dynamic person to join its Clinical Administration Team.
The Brent Centre for Young People is a charity based in North West London that provides psychotherapeutic treatments to young people aged 11-25 years, who suffer with emotional difficulties and mental health needs. It also has an international reputation and delivers world-leading evidence-based practices to young people across North West London. In 2018/2019, through its In-house and Outreach Services, the Centre helped over 600 young people to be healthier and better prepared for adulthood.
As the Brent Centre is now expanding its services to the City of Westminster, and creating a Partnership Child and Adolescent Clinic with the Institute of Psychoanalysis, the job holder will be based at two locations, London W9 (Maida Vale) & NW6 (At the Brent Centre, Brondesbury Park).
This post is an exciting opportunity to be part both of supporting the growth of this new service and supporting clinical administration at the Brent Centre within an existing small team.
The suitable candidate will have at least two years’ experience of clinical and/or general administration and reception duties. This post will suit a confident, reliable individual with strong interpersonal, organisational and communication skills. You will be expected to be confident in IT skills and apply them to recording data daily on our client database. We are looking for someone who demonstrates a high level of professionalism, can work to regular deadlines and adheres to confidentiality and can communicate professionally, politely and effectively with young patients, their families, our clinical and non-clinical staff team and our external contacts, such as GPs.
The post requires sensitivity to the needs of young people with emotional difficulties and the nature of therapeutic work and their families. Experience with young people or with mental health is advantageous. The post holder will be expected to work until 8.30pm.
The candidate will have excellent skills, when carrying out duties of the post.
Closing date: Friday 10th December 2021
Shortlisted candidates will be required to take a 30-minute test
