Job Description

Thank you for considering a Team Leader role with Redthread. We are a team of compassionate, collaborative and courageous professionals, committed to empowering young people to change their lives. This clip from BBC News will give you a taster of what we do every day.

As the Team Leader based in Birmingham, you will enable the team to support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families, whilst holding a caseload yourself.

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 leading a service and 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.

In return, the successful candidate will receive a competitive salary, a supportive and flexible working environment, excellent staff training and development package and access to a range of employee benefits including; enhanced annual leave and family leave entitlements, employer pension scheme contribution, access to clinical supervisions, enhanced employee assistance programme services and more.
