The Opportunity

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our Warwickshire School Health and Wellbeing Service with a county wide remit.

About us

Compass works in communities currently within the Midlands, Yorkshire and London providing innovative and integrated health and wellbeing services for children, young people and adults. Our Specialist directorate is made up of pioneering risk taking behaviour and early help services for vulnerable children and young people/adults, and specialist substance misuse services for young people and adults. Our Universal and Targeted directorate provides transformational school aged healthy child programmes and prevention services. Over the past 5 years our portfolio has undergone significant expansion to deliver services that focus on a broader lifestyles agenda – substance misuse, sexual health, mental health and emotional wellbeing, and healthy relationships.

About the role

The Healthy Lifestyle Coordinator will be an active member of the team facilitating and coordinating and overseeing the delivery of National Child Measurement Programme across the County, supporting the development and delivery of sustainable care pathways and public health initiatives and campaigns with other priority agencies that encompass  lifestyle and physical activity.

You will be based from one of three locations; Rugby, Stratford or Nuneaton, working across Warwickshire. You will be required to work flexibly and creatively to best engage and meet the diverse health needs of the school aged population.

The Person

You will be an active member of the team working to deliver the Healthy Child Programme (5-19) and contributing to the efficient and effective delivery of the School Health and Wellbeing Service.

There will be a requirement for you to work independently and autonomously, to manage your own workload within the service. There will also be a requirement to carry out some early evening and weekend working based on evidenced need.
