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 post holder will lead a small dedicated Arthur House nursing team meeting the health, well being and social care needs of Arthur House clients under the indirect and direct guidance and supervision of the Service Manager.
The Charge Nurse will provide a range of health, well being and social care interventions/groups, undertake administrative tasks including data recording, administer medication and give general assistance to all clients in treatment at Arthur House. The Charge Nurse will also ensure that all Clinical checks are carried out in a timely manner in line with Priory Policies and Processes and will support colleagues through monthly supervision.
The ideal candidate will have a pro-active and can-do attitude able to manage workload successfully. 
 
Arthur House prides itself on all our nurses delivering care, compassion and empathy.
The post holder will provide an efficient and professional service ensuring the best possible standards of care at all times complying with all statutory requirements and following Priory policies and procedures. You would work very closely with clients who experience challenges with eating behaviours on a daily basis. There will be times when you are expected to eat a meal with the clients and model healthy behaviours accordingly. 
The role has a 12 week rotational shift pattern, including some nights.

Shifts are 12.5 hour shifts, three times per week, and a fourth shift every fourth week.
