We are Manchester Local Care Organisation - an exciting, new public sector organisation that is bringing together NHS community health services in the city. We're driven by the aim of improving the health of local people in Manchester by working across organisational boundaries.

The first health and social care staff have been deployed to us from April 2018 and are now starting to work in new ways across the city. Our teams work as one in the neighbourhoods they serve - delivering and designing services in partnership with local people. We also provide key services that work across wider localities and city-wide. We believe that our pioneering approach will make a massive difference to the health of people in our city and we are looking for you to join our team and help us do this.

Ideally, but not essential, you will be a qualified BSc Hons Specialist Community Public Health Nurse - School Nursing (SCPHN).

Acting as Named Nurse for an identified group of schools who have purchased additional school nursing hours, you will be predominantly based in schools, will deliver the Healthy Child Programme as well as working with the schools themselves to identified their health needs. With this in mind you need to be a confident, knowledgeable and skilled practitioner able to make decisions and capable of working autonomously. You will have strong interpersonal skills and be aware of the importance of being ‘customer focused. Representing the service in school, you will also be able to negotiate and communicate in a confident manner with a wide range of professionals from all levels within the school setting.

In return, you’ll receive ongoing supervision and continued professional development and you will have the opportunity to contribute as a team member to the overall vision and direction of the new Manchester School Health Service. This role presents a real opportunity to broaden your skill-set while at the same time making a difference and having a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of Manchester's children and young people.
