Working 36.5 hours per week

This is an exciting opportunity to join the leadership team of Birmingham’s Therapeutic Emotional Support Service (TESS) a service that has been complimented by OFSTED. 

TESS is an emotional wellbeing service for Birmingham’s looked after children, children on the ‘edge of care’ and young people who have left care.   Its purpose is to promote the health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people and to support those who have responsibility for their care.   

The underpinning approach is ‘Relationship-based Practice’.

This acknowledges that relationship is a central element in practice and draws on the extensive evidence base that confirms a good therapeutic alliance is the key to a positive outcome for any intervention.

The aim is to build resilience rather than ‘treat’ difficulties or problems with a focus on supporting the development of secure attachments.
