An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the expanding MST-UK national team, part of the highly specialist National Service, which provides training and consultation on a wide range of evidence based interventions for children and young people and their families.

Successful applicants will join an existing team of highly skilled MST Consultants to provide training and consultation to MST teams throughout the UK and Ireland as part of the MST- UK Network Partnership. MST Consultants provide training, clinical expertise and guidance in the theory and application of MST to professionals working in local MST programmes and who hold a variety of positions including clinicians, supervisors, administrators, and policy makers.

With the direct support of the MST-UK Programme Director and an MST coach from MSTServices in the USA, the MST Consultant will provide support and training for new MST Sites, weekly telephone consultation and on-going training to licensed MST programmes and support regarding quality assurance, organisational and systems issues. They will also contribute to new developments within the service. 

Applicants should have a doctorate or MSc level qualification or equivalent in Psychology or Family Therapy or a relevant professional qualification in a related field, for example Social Work or Psychiatric Nursing and have completed additional post qualifying training in a relevant therapeutic approach and have a comprehensive portfolio of post-qualifying professional development in child and adolescent mental health. They must be trained and experienced as a Supervisor in Multisystemic Therapy and should have completed the Advanced Supervisor training and have an assessed successful record of accomplishment as an MST supervisor or an MST consultant. Experience of working within an MST Adaptation is also welcome.
