They will offer specialist supervision, training and support to other clinicians, supporting their work with people with eating disorders. The main focus of the role will be to deliver evidence based treatments for users of the STEPs service. The successful candidate will be working predominately with outpatients, but there is also scope to work with inpatients, either individually or in group. Specialist supervision from the lead Clinical Psychologist, as well as group supervision in the service will be available. External as well as in house training will be available. There will also be an expectation that the post holder will play a role in service evaluation and audit.
