The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As part of our safe recruitment practice pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed. As part of the selection process you may be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, however all cases of criminal record history are dealt with on a case by case basis.

Please note, if applicable for your role you will be required to cover the cost of your DBS certificate. This will be deducted from your salary over 3 months. You will also be required to sign up to the DBS Update Service before commencement with the Trust.


All successful applicants will be required to complete the Trust’s induction programme. The Fundamental (Statutory and Mandatory) training will be in an e-learning format. You will be required to complete training modules online (approx. 9-14 hours depending on post) in your own time prior to any unconditional offer being made.

Our Trust is committed to treating individuals fairly and ensuring they have the same opportunities to fulfil their potential, even if this means doing things differently for different people sometimes. We are working hard to ensure our workforce reflects the diversity within Birmingham and Solihull and that our services meet the needs of all diverse service users and carers.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Clinical Specialist to join the Complex Treatment Service for Military Veterans (CTS). We are a friendly team, who are committed to support the needs of veterans and their families. The service offers assessment and treatment to veterans presenting with military attributable complex mental health issues, including Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety disorders, substance misuse and/or anger issues.

The post holder will support the CTS in the development, management and delivery of the Complex Treatment Service across the West Midlands region. As the CTS is a relatively new service, this role also provides a rare and exciting opportunity to meaningfully contribute to the development of a service both at a clinical and operational level. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to continue to develop their clinical skills, providing specialist and expert assessments, formulations and evidence-based treatment following NICE guidance. There will be a particular focus on the provision of supervision within this role, and the post holder will supervise and line-manage Clinical Psychologists, Psychological Therapists and qualified HCPs as appropriate.
