What is special about working for us?
This is an exciting opportunity to work with young people aged 18-25 in a new and innovative pilot Transitions to Adulthood hub service. Commissioned by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), this service brings together East London NHS Foundation Trust, as a member of the London Pathways Partnership, with voluntary sector partners Rights and Equalities in Newham (REIN) and Together for Mental Wellbeing, to develop creative approaches to engaging young people on probation in Newham. The hub will provide wrap-around support tailored to the distinct needs of young adults, including an understanding of maturity, in order to reduce reoffending, improve mental health and support young adults to make positive life choices. The service is co-located in Newham probation and delivers therapeutic, psychological and psychiatric interventions to young adults and will embed psychologically informed practice across the hub, with an emphasis on trauma informed care.
This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team. You will also benefit from being part of a dynamic growing organisation, committed to the development of its workforce. You will need to have excellent interpersonal skills that will enable you to challenge, motivate, influence and inspire your colleagues at all levels. Young black and Muslim men and women are significantly represented in the hub and our staff require a high level of cultural competence and sensitivity to issues relevant to young minority groups. We hope to recruit a staff team reflective of our service user population and welcome applications from those with protected characteristics.
