The cultural pillars that help us achieve our key priorities are:

  • We value each other
  • We are empowered
  • We keep things simple
  • We are connected

By coming to work at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust you will be joining a Trust with a national reputation for research, where services recognise that research underpins its commitment to providing high quality and innovative clinical care.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I Cultural pillars are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.

By applying for this role, you accept in the event you are successful that your personal data may be transferred from the Trust to another NHS organisation where your employment transfers within the NHS.

Therefore we want you to complete your e-learning modules prior to joining our organisation.


The C&I Early Intervention Service is in the process of an exciting expansion.

Our ambition is to be a Gold Standard Service, faithful to the EIP model, capable of having a real impact on relapse rates, inpatient admissions and service user recovery in terms of social inclusion, maximising strengths and potential. We would like to invite the most energetic, motivated and competent practitioners to join us in moving further towards this goal.

The successful post holder will act as care coordinator for a caseload of service users under CPA whilst contributing to the wider multi-disciplinary team approach from within their area of expertise in occupational therapy.

The team also has a strong research ethic, with the team participating in several multi-Centre studies.

The service aims are:

  • To offer early assessment, diagnosis and treatment of FEP.
    • To offer person centred, individual, culturally sensitive care, with an emphasis on increasing stability, skill development and developing social roles.
    • To maximize both symptomatic and social recovery after a first episode of psychosis through effective engagement with service users.
    • To minimize the service user’s first experiences of service contact being disconcerting or stigmatizing.
    • To support and educate carers, and involve them as fully as possible in service users’ care.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate a sound knowledge base of health and psycho-social interventions for first episode psychosis clients. This post would suit applicants with prior experience in mental health wishing to develop their skills in a community setting. Team members benefit from a supportive team environment, with clinical supervision, peer support and training including the Early Intervention training programme. There is also the opportunity to contribute to the development and evaluation of a group programme for service users.
