Become part of the Employment Advisors in IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) initiative which will inform future roll-out decision making across all IAPT services.
IAPT is an NHS programme in England that offers evidence-based treatment to people with common mental health problems – such as depression and anxiety. The Employment Advisors (EA) in IAPT programme provide skills-based interventions, information and practical support to help people receiving IAPT services to remain in, return to, and find work.
Talk Changes (City & Hackney IAPT) are recruiting for an Employment Advisor to help deliver employment support to patients accessing the Talk Changes therapy services. The role will involve working closely with IAPT clinicians, external services and employers when managing a caseload of clients with their employment needs.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a large and dynamic IAPT service working in a stimulating and unique inner London setting. Hackney is a particularly diverse borough, even within London, and this is reflected in the range of people that they see and the problems that they treat. You will be joining a large team of clinical and counselling psychologists, CBT therapists and psychological wellbeing practitioners. They are part of Homerton University Hospital and have strong links with local GPs, secondary care mental health services and voluntary sector providers as part of the City and Hackney Psychological Therapies Alliance.
The post holder would be based at St Leonard’s Hospital but may also be expected to travel borough-wide to offer clinics at other locations.
