You will cover the NHS Lothian area building on established links with carer organisations and NHS Lothian staff in inpatient and community services for eating disorders.
You will have experience of working in a supportive and enabling role in the mental health field and be passionate about the rights of carers and ensuring their voice is heard. You will communicate with empathy and sensitivity and have the ability to build good working relationships. Personal or lived experience as a carer of a person with an eating disorder is desirable.
