Job summary

* * Previous applicants need not apply * *

Come and join a well established, friendly and supportive IAPT team here at Birmingham Healthy Minds. We are looking for dynamic and enthusiastic PWP's to enhance an already reputable service.

As a motivated PWP proficient in CBT techniques you will inspire clients to become their own therapist using a variety of medium such as computerised CBT, telephone work, one to one and group work. Part of your varied role will also be spent assessing client suitability for BHM and where appropriate signposting to other more suitable services.

For those who are familiar with the IAPT environment you will be aware of the flexible and adaptable nature of IAPT services and therefore you must be able to handle change as part of your role. As a future orientated service we offer groups and assessments outside the 9-5 so expect some evening (weekly) and some Saturday working (monthly).

Main duties of the job

You will need to work closely with your colleagues both at step 2 and at step 3 to ensure streamlined service provision and to foster excellent working relationships.

What we can offer you at BHM:

  • A welcoming and friendly working environment
  • A mixture of office based and remote working
  • Weekly case management supervision
  • Fortnightly group clinical skills supervision
  • Regular team meetings
  • Monthly service wide step 2 meetings
  • Internal and where viable external training opportunities to further your skills
  • Champion roles in perinatal, older adults, staff wellbeing etc.

We encourage applications from trainee PWP's who are about to complete their course to apply, with posts being offered conditionally on confirmation of passing an IAPT approved training course.

Here at BHM we cover a vast geographical area with enormous diversity both culturally and socio economically. Your skills as a PWP will be challenged to meet the needs of this diverse population and the ability to adjust your interventions to suit the goals of the individual client is paramount.

If you think you are up to the challenge and have the relevant qualification then get your skates on and apply before the closing date!
