Strategic Themes

Great Care
We will deliver safe, high quality, consistent and personalised care based on best practice. We are working to be a responsive organisation that listens and learns.

Great Organisation
We work to be a green organisation, and our sustainability plan will deliver NHS net zero targets. We will support quality care, research and innovation. All our work will be underpinned by clear and transparent principles and systems.

Great People
We will work together with our staff to create an organisation that supports our collective health and wellbeing. We will attract, retain and develop great people, and embed a caring, open, inclusive and restorative just culture that supports us to deliver quality care.

Great Partner
With our partners we will deliver health care that improves people’s quality of life, prevents ill health and reduces inequalities. We will spend our money wisely to achieve high quality outcomes that matter to local people.

At the NHS, we are reminded every day of how important life is. As a flexible working friendly organisation, we want to be sure that you can work in a way that is best for us and for our patients, and for you. Speak to us about how we might be able to accommodate a flexible working arrangement whether that’s job share, part time or another flexible pattern. In addition, although the role advertised may have a ‘home’ office base indicated, we remain committed to supporting flexibility around workplace locations. If it works for the service, we will do our best to make it work for you.

The successful applicant will be an NHS employee and may therefore have contact with vulnerable service users. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been necessary to take significant steps to protect the health and safety of our staff, service users and those attending our sites. Unless exempt, we encourage and support staff to be vaccinated as this remains the best line of defence against COVID-19.

Job overview

“The NHS needs you now more than ever”

Would you like to do a job that makes a difference every day, using your skills, experience, and compassion to help children and young people with their mental health?

Would you like to live in Cornwall? A county of outstanding natural beauty with its endless rugged coastlines, beautiful countryside, and unbeatable beaches. Attracting millions of visitors each year, this could be your chance to move here permanently and make a difference to the children and young people in our community.

Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing. BLOOM has been developing over the last 3 years to provide a truly holistic and integrated approach.

Main duties of the job

We are looking for a dynamic and solution focused individual who is passionate about high quality care for children and young people across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. You will be outcomes driven and able to work collaboratively with the CAMHS community team, Early Help Hub, MARU (Multi Agency Referral Unit), and other partnership agencies to deliver a unified and safe service to children, young people, and their families.

The BLOOM senior administrator will work as part of an established multi-disciplinary team, playing a pivotal role at the front door of our service. Day to day you will be working with professionals, referrers, families, to arrange BLOOM consultations and send out plans.

Working for our organisation

We’re an NHS community and mental health provider Trust based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We deliver community and hospital-based care to improve people’s physical and mental health. We also provide specialist support to people with dementia or a learning disability.

We are a people organisation and people matter to us. As part of the team, you'll help support the health and wellbeing of the people who live and visit this beautiful part of the UK.

Over 4,000 people make up the Trust. This includes doctors, nurses, therapists, plus admin and support staff.

We work in people's homes, in community clinics and bases. Some staff work from one of our 13 community hospitals. Our aspiration is to have great people, provide great care, be a great place to work and a great partner.

Just over 532,000 people live here. A third of people who live in Cornwall are supported by acute hospital services in Devon. As a result, we also work closely with our partners in Devon. In the summer, and during other holidays lots of people choose to visit the area. This increases the numbers of people who use our services.
