The Suffolk wide CEDS-CYP has undergone a period of exciting expansion and service development. This additional provision has significantly enhanced the current service available to young people with eating disorders and their families in line with national waiting time standards.
We are now recruiting to a new full time post Band 6 Senior Community Mental Health Nurse covering the East of the county based with the team in Ipswich. This post will be working with children and adolescents but is based in an age inclusive team. This is an exciting time to join a committed and experienced team to play a key role in on-going team and service development to meet the complex needs of this challenging client group.
This post will be primarily working with children and adolescents presenting with eating disorders, and ideally you will have relevant experience with this client group or significant relevant transferable skills appropriate to this role. You will be working alongside the multi-disciplinary team; providing assessments, contributing to and coordinating care plans, providing direct therapeutic interventions to children and young people as well as supporting their families and carers.
The team is committed to providing training in eating disorders to non-specialist mental health professionals around the Trust and you would have a key role in this provision alongside other team members. We have an effective working relationship with our local paediatric inpatient unit and you would play a key role in supporting admissions to this unit with which we have a successful track record of preventing specialist admissions.
We are looking for individuals who possess a combination of the professional skills, personal enthusiasm and energy to work with this client group. In return we offer the opportunity to work with a supportive multi-disciplinary team.

DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
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.
