CAPS is looking for a new worker to facilitate the successful “Seen But Not Heard” collective advocacy project for people with experience of eating disorders.

You will facilitate the collective advocacy group to take forward their identified actions, being led by them and working to make sure their views and wishes are expressed. Current tasks the group are involved in are experience led research; delivering the Understanding Eating Disorders learning session via video conferencing and providing bespoke input to students at local universities to inform their future work roles in mental health services.

Working autonomously, as part of a team of Collective Advocacy workers, you should be friendly and approachable, with the ability to form trusting relationships with the group members and colleagues. Applications are welcomed from people with their own lived experience of an eating disorder.

There will be a 6-month probationary period attached to this 12 month post. This post will be subject to membership of the PVG Scheme and appropriate check. Currently all our staff are working from home and carrying out their work remotely.
