We’re recruiting!

We are recruiting for Network and Development Officer/s to deliver a new project for EDNE in collaboration with CNTW and the adult eating disorder provider collaborative (part of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System). 

The aims of the project are to: 

  • Test how we can best expand the role of the VCSE in the Adult Eating Disorder (AED) pathway across the North East and North Cumbria (what works and why?)  
  • Lead work to draw existing VCSE/community-based groups for AED across the North East and North Cumbria into an AED network   

We can be flexible on the working pattern and the roles could be full or part-time (3 days a week minimum) depending on the candidate(s) but the successful candidate(s) will be expected to work across the region. 

You will work in person and remotely so the role(s) can be undertaken flexibly through remote and home working. 

If you have: 

  • experience of working in or with the VCSE sector 
  • strong inter-personal and presentation skills 
  • the ability to build and maintain relationships with community organisations and other stakeholders including statutory partners 

And are very well organised and capable of operating to a high standard independently and as part of wider teams we’d love to hear from you. 

For an informal discussion about the role please contact anne.fry@edne.org.uk 

Closing date for applications: Friday 17th February at 5pm. 

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities, and in particular,  those that are currently underrepresented in our workforce.

What you say

Testimonials

"Thank you so much for all your help over the past few months. I’ve never been comfortable enough to open up about my eating struggles so honestly and detailed to anybody (including other professionals!) like I have been able to with you and I can’t put into words how much I appreciate all the support, kindness and time you have given me through a really difficult period. Whoever has you as their therapist next is very lucky 😊"
