Team Leader - London
Team Leader - London
Salary: c.£34,000 p.a. + benefits (includes London weighting)
Location: University College London Hospital, Euston
Closing Date: 9am, Monday 14th June
As a Team Leader based in the A&E department of University College London Hospital (UCLH), you will enable the team to support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families and hold a caseload yourself.
To succeed in this role, you need to be a strong leader who advocates for a trauma-informed approach for the team and for the young people we support. You’ll have extensive experience working with young people who are vulnerable and high risk, an understanding of the impact intense, short term work can have, and a good understanding of the support eco-system they need. You need to be a people person, able to build and maintain relationships with colleagues and partners and to be a nurturing line manager to a small team working in a busy hospital environment.
You must also be a skilled communicator: as comfortable building a relationship with a young person as you are liaising with our clinical colleagues. You’ll be keen to keep learning, seizing training opportunities at Redthread and continuously reflecting upon and improving your practice.
During the Covid-19 outbreak, our teams are still working from the hospitals as we are classed as essential workers. You will need to do shifts at the hospital, as well as working some days from home, depending on the needs of the team and the service.

Details on how to apply are inside the job pack. We use the BeApplied recruitment system, which is designed to remove as much opportunity for bias as possible and allows candidates to show off their skills, and share real life evidence of work they’ve done before, meaning we choose the best people for the role based on merit, and not on how well they can write a CV or if we identify with names/backgrounds.
