Step 3 Clinical Lead - Home based 

About With You

Everyone should feel comfortable getting the support they need.

We work and support people and their goals, whether that’s staying safe and healthy, making small changes or stopping an unwanted habit altogether.

We give people support in a way that’s right for them either face to face, in their local service, community or online.

We provide a free and confidential service without judgement.

We use our expertise to improve the help available and raise awareness around drugs, alcohol and mental health so that more people can get support.

We Are With You.

About the role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced and ambitious Step 3 Clinical Lead to join our team in this senior role.

You will provide clinical supervision to Senior High Intensity Therapists and to frontline Step 3 teams as needed and will carry a small clinical caseload. You will lead group supervision and reflective practice and work closely with Step 2 Clinical Leads and the National Clinical Lead for Mental Health to ensure high quality of the Step 3 IAPT provision.

You will be responsible for overseeing the development and retention of the Step 3 clinical team and will work with Universities and managers to oversee training provision and supporting trainees through their training year.

What we’re looking for
