Are you a registered nurse who wants to make a difference in the lives of children, young people and families in Warwickshire?

About us

We’re a school nurse-led service that supports children, young people and families. We deliver key elements of the Healthy Child programme, working to identify and meet the health & wellbeing needs of the school-age population and give individuals the best possible start in life.

About the role

As School Staff Nurse, your priority would be helping children, young people and their families achieve positive health & wellbeing outcomes. You’ll carry out a range of assessments, interventions and public health initiatives, working both independently and as part of a multi-agency team around the family. Safeguarding is an integral part of the role.

You will also provide information, advice and support to our skill-mix teams, helping deliver an effective service that makes a difference while keeping children, young people and families at the heart of everything you do.

You will be based out of one of our hubs in Warwickshire: Stratford, Caldecote or Rugby (depending on your preference).

Working hours are Mon – Fri, 37 hours per week with occasional early evening and weekend working.

The person

We’re looking for nurses with experience of managing a caseload, undertaking risk assessments, providing holistic care and delivering a range of health interventions to individuals on either a 1:1 or group basis.

We’re looking for someone who will work creatively to meet each individual’s needs and make every interaction meaningful. We want you to share our passion for promoting and protecting the health & wellbeing of every school-age child and young person.

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

The benefits

In return, we offer a range of benefits including:

  • Generous annual leave
  • Employee Assistance Programme and OH Service
  • Excellent learning & development opportunities and career progression
  • Generous contributory Pension Scheme
  • Corporate Membership to SAPHNA, which includes access to webinars, resources, forums and low-cost entry to conferences on school and public health topics
  • Life Assurance

If you are interested in this role, please apply as soon as possible as we may decide to close this vacancy once sufficient applications have been received.

To arrange an informal chat with one of our team leaders, please contact our service on 03300 245 204.

To apply, you will need to download and complete part 1 & 2 of our application form. We would be grateful if you could also complete our equality monitoring form.

You should note that as Compass delivers public health services, it is likely that it may become an occupational requirement that you must have COVID vaccinations, which would be in line with Government direction subject to the outcome of current consultation.

Compass is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults and you should share our commitment. All Compass posts are subject to appropriate level DBS checks. We value diversity at Compass and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

Established for over 30 years, Compass is a national charity which works in communities across the UK providing services spanning substance misuse treatment and rehabilitation, early interventions for vulnerable young people, school aged health programmes and associated prevention as well as treatment and health promotion initiatives.
