We invite newly qualified nurses or those awaiting NMC registration to apply. The HIT offer intensive intervention to young people and their families who are currently receiving support through our core eating disorders team. The aims are; to prevent admission to inpatient care, facilitate early discharge from inpatient care, support patients with complex co-morbid needs (such as neuro-developmental disorder) and ensure safe and effective monitoring of patients who are deemed high risk due to their physical or psychological needs.

The CAMHS Eating Disorder Team strives for excellence and good quality care in our everyday practice. Using evidence based interventions; we offer specialist treatment for young people under the age of 18 who are suffering from anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about working with individuals who are experiencing eating disorders, as well as contributing to our award winning, forward thinking and dynamic team of professionals (Including family therapists, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists).

The post holder will be working over both teams of our cohesive CAMHS Eating Disorder team and the HIT team on a full time basis. You will be expected to be able to develop a good level of skill in working with complex presentations of young people with eating disorders. There will be an opportunity to engage in individual, family and group interventions and reflective learning opportunities are facilitated through clinical and operational supervision.

There will be a comprehensive and supportive induction plan put in place for the post holder so they will be able to gain confidence and expertise in this area. Alongside your induction within the team, we will also be supporting your preceptorship with the LPT Learning and Development Team. There will be opportunities for in-house training as well as shadowing other professionals within the team. The post will be split 50/50 between both areas of the team.

We take pride in working together to maintain a supportive and friendly workplace that enables our staff to thrive and influence meaningful change to the lives of the young people and families accessing our service.
