Peterborough City Council Children’s Services is looking for a dynamic and innovative individual to lead and implement the development of Peterborough’s new Clinical Service.

This new and exciting opportunity will see the successful candidate have responsibility for a number of key priorities, including:

• Providing clinical expertise, advice, guidance and support to children’s social care professionals within Peterborough City Council (PCC) in respect of Children in Care (CiC), their carers and wider stakeholders, specifically centred on CYP’s mental health and emotional well-being.
• Particular focus on liaising with professionals and local health networks (including CAMHs) in order to recommend the selection and support the delivery of therapeutic interventions in line with best practice.

• Provision of high-quality clinical supervision/reflective practice to individuals and/or teams within PCC Children’s Social Care.
