WE ARE LOOKING FOR TALENTED PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!

Knowing that you’re making a difference to people’s lives is rewarding in itself. But our many roles offer much more than that. As well as helping you grow and develop your talent, we want you to feel proud of where you work and what you do.

Job Advert Role Description

Arthur House is an innovative "preventative and secondary" eating disorder service based in Wimbledon, South West London. Providing an alternative to traditional Hospital treatment, this nine-bedded residential treatment centre provides cutting-edge therapies and 24/7 nursing support, offering a safe space for individuals to maintain a healthy relationship with food.

The aim is to prevent clients from requiring hospitalisation and to support those who have already received some initial residential support and want to carry on embedding the skills they have already acquired.

The service consists of both day care and residential treatment for adult male and females with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder (BED), or mixed eating disorder symptoms. We support people to increase their independence and empower each client to take responsibility for their social and emotional lives, as well as their general health and wellbeing.

We have nine single-occupancy bedrooms, a beautifully furnished lounge, fully functioning kitchen and a dining area providing a full community setting.

A key element of the treatment programme is community living, to help support our clients journey. We take advantage of our beautiful surroundings to support clients to make links with the local community, with a view to building a sense of identity and self-worth outside of that imposed on them by their eating disorder. This, in turn, can increase an individual’s motivation for change and lead to improved outcomes around physical and mental health.

The Service Manager will ensure that all colleagues are focused on providing positive outcomes for the people we support, in line with regulatory standards and company key performance indicators, policies and procedures. Managing and running their service as a financially profitable and viable business that has a future that the people we support, the company and external stakeholders feel confident in.

This is an exciting opportunity to lead and develop a new and innovative extended care service for clients suffering with Eating Disorders. The key areas of the role include:

To ensure that all colleagues provide excellent standards of care to the people we support, with a focus on positive outcomes, promoting choice and independence and positive behavioural support.

To Ensure that all care plans are person-centred, reviewed and updated regularly.

The successful candidate will lead, develop and support the highly skilled therapy team to deliver a market leading therapeutic programme made up of talking therapy, and exposure therapy

The successful candidate will also support, train and develop the nursing team in driving change and keeping our clients safe.

Developing community relationships to support the return to the community for our clients as they exit treatment is vital to a well led service

The successful candidate will report to the Hospital Director, and support with developing the site as a market leading provider of extended care for eating disorders
