Cambian Clinical Complex Care Service

Cambian Complex Care Services provide a range of services for children and young people who have experienced significant trauma and/or adverse life events. Our residential homes are supported by a multi-disciplinary team and the young people we care for present with a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties as a result of their experiences. Our service draws on a range of therapeutic models when conceptualising the presenting difficulties of young people in order to offer the best individual intervention.

Job Role

We are seeking academically strong candidates to support and enhance the psychological care of children and young people within Cambian Healthcare by assisting qualified psychologists in the delivery and evaluation of evidence based interventions that meet Cambian Healthcare objectives, national strategic and policy guidelines, commissioner requirements and user and carer needs and expectations.

Full induction training is given.

Clinical supervision is an important part of development and additional training will be supported.
