Job Advert Role Description

Ready for the recognition and rewards you deserve?

We don’t just talk about putting employees first. We know that Priory wouldn’t exist without their combined energy, expertise and effort.  So we invest heavily in training, provide first-class support, promote collaborative teamwork and give everyone on our team the opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

Stroud Residential Eating Disorders Service is a specialist residential service providing medium to long-term support and treatment for young peeople and young adults (aged 17-25) suffering from eating disorders and other associated complex mental health difficulties.

The role is based at Althea Park House, a 7 bedded home for young adults (17-25). We also have The Anchor, a 3 bedded semi-independent step-down home (18+) on the Althea Park House site.

We are fortunate to be able to work in warm, homely environments, within the beautiful Stroud Valleys, in Gloucestershire.

Our therapetic model focuses on supporting our service users to build a life outside of the confines of their eating disorder or indeed, mental illness. We work hard to support those that live in our homes, to build their own resiliance, sense of self and ability to connect with the world around them.

This is an opportunity to provide maternity cover for 12 months. The home supports older adolescents and young adults with eating disorders. The suggested hours are 9.30am-2.30pm, 4 days a week, in order to be more welcoming to potential candidates who may have school age children.


The role is primarily concerned with keeping the communal areas of the home clean and tidy whilst ensuring that the correct documentation is completed to evidence the work that is completed. It also involves working alongside the administrator to ensure the correct stock is ordered as well as working alongside maintenance to share any damage, faults or areas for improvement in the home environment.


You will have regular supervision in a supportive team and will form part of the Support Services - alongside the Cooks, Administrator and Maintenance - who support the home to ensure that the Clinical and Care Staff can provide an excellent service within a lovely, homely environment.
