This is a unique and exciting role for any Mental Health Professional with experience of working in CAMHs and an interest in eating disorders.

As a service we are working towards our QNCC accreditation and have won two national conference awards for our participation strategy and conference contributions. We are looking for a motivated individual with a passion for eating disorders to lead on eating disorders within our OSCA service in Buckinghamshire.

You will work across both the CAMHS ED Team and within Osca, taking a lead on quality improvement, including audits and evaluations,  as well as staff training and development and care co-ordinator responsibilities. You will also work on the crisis team roster including providing out of hours support.

The role is diverse and autonomous so requires a forward thinking and creative individual who is driven to improve care delivery. If not already acquired training in the core Eating Disorder NICE con-concordant treatments will be available.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
