As a Team Leader based in the emergency department of St George’s Hospital, you will support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy along with their families, and you will hold a caseload yourself.
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 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.
