Are you a nurse who wants to make a difference to the lives of children, young people and their families? If so, then we need you to help us deliver our dynamic and innovative School Health & Wellbeing Service in Warwickshire.

The Opportunity

We are looking for two motivated and solution-focused School Staff Nurses to join our Warwickshire School Health & Wellbeing Service.

About us

Compass Warwickshire School Health & Wellbeing Service delivers key elements of the universal Healthy Child Programme to school-aged children (aged 5-19, or up to 25 with SEND) and their families. It is an accessible and confidential, outcome-focused service that is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Warwickshire. 

About the role

As a School Staff Nurse, you will carry out a range of assessments, as well as delivering psychosocial brief interventions. You will support the implementation, promotion and delivery of proactive public health initiatives and you will also provide professional information, advice and support to skill mix teams to support the efficient and effective delivery of the service.

You will be based out of either our Stratford hub, which operates across the south of the county or our Rugby hub, which operates across central Warwickshire. You will work from a variety of settings including schools, partner agencies, children’s centres and homes. You will be required to work flexibly and creatively to best engage and meet the diverse health needs of the school-aged population. Some evening and weekend working may be required based on evidenced need. 

The Person

You will be an NMC registered Nurse who is experienced in delivering 1:1/group interventions and managing a caseload. You will ideally have experience of working with children/young people and families within the community, although this is not essential. You will be skilled in developing, establishing and maintaining positive relationships, with the ability to work independently and autonomously.

You must possess a full UK driving licence and have access to your own transport.

The Benefits

Working hours Mon – Fri, 37 hours per week with some early evening and weekend working • Generous annual leave • Employee assistance programme and OH service • Eye tests for VDU users • Excellent learning & development opportunities and career progression • Generous Compass contributory pension scheme
