Full time


We are looking for an exceptional Band 5 Nurse, either experienced or newly qualified, to join our well-established Eating Disorders Inpatient Service which is based at Langley Ward, The Bennion Centre, Glenfield Hospital, Leicester. We specialise in caring for patients with low weight Anorexia Nervosa.


The successful candidate will need to be a highly motivated nurse with enthusiasm, who wants to be part of a valued multidisciplinary team. You will be integral to the smooth operational running of the ward and as such, you will be required to deliver all aspects of care, to include developing, implementing and evaluating care plans along with patient involvement, supervising meals, assisting patients with meal planning and providing emotional support in response to the management of weight and eating difficulties. You will also be assisting with the day program for anorexia nervosa at various stages of recovery. You will be capable of delivering services of the highest quality and be able to manage patients presenting with a varying degree of physical and psychiatric risk.


Although previous experience in Eating Disorders is desired but not essential, we would welcome a registered nurse with experience in other areas. We offer in-house training and personal development opportunities within the ward and at our learning and development centre to ensure that you have the knowledge/skills to meet patient needs and to complete your revalidation CPD requirement.




As LPT Staff we offer free onsite parking. We work on an internal rotational basis there are 3 shift patterns. We may be able to offer flexible working patterns: we can clarify this at interview.


You are welcome to visit our ward during your application process to gain a better understanding of the care we deliver to our patients.








Please contact Maureen Williams, Ward Sister on 0116 2951474 for further information.


We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
