Orri is looking for a Dietitian to join our growing team!
The dietetic role at Orri is an active and important role in the team. Dietitians work alongside the clinical team providing a mixture of individual sessions and groups, and work to build strong therapeutic relationships with the clients.
The approach is one of collaboration, support and challenge. We work with clients to support them in growing their confidence in their relationship with food as they move through their recovery.
Our team of dietitians work as part of the wider multi-disciplinary team, and the post holder will work closely with other disciplines in the support and approach to the clients treatment plan.
Each dietitian will have responsibility for the assessment of client dietary needs, as well as the development and evaluation of menu programmes and any other required nutritional intervention. They will be expected to carry out all relevant forms of care in partnership with the client, carers where appropriate and other professionals in line with agreed standards, clinical polices and without direct supervision.
Dietetics assessments are utilised within the team to identify the person’s nutritional needs, and to provide a baseline on which levels of support are offered to ensure we are able to provide a level of independence in a variety of living environments. Assessment is ongoing throughout treatment and regularly updated and responded to as the client’s needs evolve and change.
The Dietitians works closely with the Specialist Lead Dietitian to ensure appropriate nutritional advice is offered to the clients. They will attend supervision, training and provides mentoring of more junior or student dietitians and Eating Disorder Associates.
The post-holder will be expected to interface between the GP, CMHTs, SEDUs, Inpatient services and other Mental Health Network services and agencies.
The post holder will be expected to have significant knowledge and experience of working with people who have been diagnosed with an eating disorder, and competent to support their physiological and psychological needs as they arise.
