“I love working in CAIST for the difference we can make in a young person’s and their family/carer’s life, through their most difficult times.” Come and join our award winning team!”

Is your passion working creatively with children and families? Looking for a role with flexible working opportunities?

We are excited to offer the opportunity to join our Under 18’s Crisis Service as either a Clinical or Forensic Psychologist supporting young people and their families across Norfolk and Waveney.

CAIST (Crisis, Assessment and Intensive Support Team) is a vibrant and dynamic service that has 3 teams based across Norfolk & Waveney and currently offers an 08.00 to 20.00 service, 7 days a week.

The team offers emergency assessment and community based intensive support to young people and their families who are experiencing a mental health crisis. CAIST aims to identify and reduce risks when children/&young people may be experiencing high levels of distress. We work hard to help people... avoid in-patient hospital admission, and when required, to expedite safe and effective discharge.

When you join team CAIST, you can expect your role to be varied and diverse – no two days are ever the same! You’ll be a valued and supported member of our multi-disciplinary team and will make a difference from day one.

Advances in training, clinical practice and research have widened the scope of interventions psychologists use when dealing with acute distress. The post holder will be expected to contribute to this expanding knowledge of ‘what works’ in a dynamic and evolving service. Despite the intensity of the work, it is brief in its duration since it is designed to help children, adolescents and families so that the stage that is ‘crisis’ can pass. Using the Thrive model, the CAIST team provide episodic care and plan for and support in the transfer for the ‘what next’. You will be working closely alongside the Principal and Consultant Psychologist and will, in turn provide clinical supervision and support to the Assistant Psychologist and other members of the team as required. You will have the opportunity to work within a diverse multidisciplinary team, including Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy, providing a psychological perspective and dispersing up to date evidence-based knowledge through consultation, joint working and training.

We are looking for people with enthusiasm, optimism, fresh ideas and energy.

Here at NSFT we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, talented, friendly and supportive team who like nothing better than sharing experiences and learning from each other. In addition to ongoing training and development opportunities, we are committed to providing an environment in which you can thrive.

Why work for us? We have challenges as a Trust, but we have ambitious aspirations, are pushing ahead with exciting transformation work and we need dedicated individuals to support us on our journey. We have strong, established nursing networks coupled with an exceptional leadership team who will ensure you are truly cared for and cared about.

Why Norfolk and Suffolk? The people here are warm and welcoming, you’ll never be far from the beautiful coastline or Broads National Park. We’re an hour and a half away from London and have an international airport in Norwich too. Our villages, towns and cities are packed full of history, independent cafes, shops and theatres. We have excellent shopping, eating out, top ranking schooling and affordable house prices too.
