An exciting opportunity has arisen within Clayfields House, to work with a small team of Intervention Workers who specialise in providing 1:1 and group work with the young people. Our Intervention Team have developed a national reputation for expert and innovative work and has examples of this published on the Youth Justice Effective Practice Resource Hub.

Children residing with us have highly complex needs including chronic self-harm and suicidal ideation, substance misuse and trauma, as well as complex diagnosis of ASD, ADHD and Attachment disorders. The children we work with are some of the most vulnerable and challenging children in the country, who have been placed with us through the Criminal Justice System either sentenced or remand, or on welfare grounds and Section 25 of the Children's Act, due to high level risk behaviours to themselves or others.

Clayfields House mission statement and philosophy is that ‘change is always possible’ and that even the most distressed, disenfranchised and difficult to engage young people can make successful progress into a productive adulthood. It is our mission to provide Secure Care, Education, Training and Specialist Interventions of the highest quality for the most vulnerable and challenging young people in England and Wales.

You will deliver high quality assessments and then targeted, innovative programmes of work to the young people either 1:1 or, in groups, in order to reduce offending and/or high-risk behaviours. You will be a graduate in a relevant discipline and already have some relevant training and experience in this field, be highly literate and be able to provide leadership and expertise to other colleagues in the centre. You will be child focused, attachment and trauma aware, a positive and proactive person who is able to build relationships with ease, maintain personal emotional resilience and work effectively with a wide-ranging multi-disciplinary team. 

Clayfields House provides 24/7 secure care, education and treatment for up to 20 young people aged between 10 and 18 years of age and is rated as Good overall by Ofsted because of the high quality of work we offer and the outcomes and progress our young people achieve.
