Youth Intervention Practitioner - London (St Mary's Hospital)
Salary: £27,000 p.a. (+ benefits)
Location: St Mary's Hospital, Paddington
Contract: Fixed-term contract to 31st March 2022, Full-Time
Closing Date: 9am, Monday 20th September
As a Youth Intervention Practitioner based in the St Mary’s Hospital A&E department, you will support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families. You’ll be part of a team that is fully embedded in the hospital and that is highly valued by clinicians and community partners alike.
To do this well you need to be a people person; passionate about supporting young people, and excited at the prospect of working in a fast-paced and exceptionally busy environment. You’ll need a proven ability to work with high risk, vulnerable young people and an understanding of the impact intense, short term work can have.
You must be a strong 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 the hospital, as well as working some days from home, depending on the needs of the team and the service.
Please note: This position is offered on a fixed-term contract to 31st March 2022.
