Are you passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of children and young people in Suffolk?

Do you want to work for an organisation who are committed to supporting their staff to achieve a healthy work-life balance and a Children and Young People's Service that has been rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted?

Suffolk County Council successfully won the contract to deliver the 0 - 19 Healthy Child Service for the whole of Suffolk, working across School Nursing, Health and Children's Centres and Family Nurse Partnership and the new Health Business Centre teams.

We are looking to recruit a School Nurse Manager (Specialist Community Public Health Nurse) to manage our School Nursing team in South and West Ipswich.

As a manager within the School Nursing Service, you will be at the forefront of managing change and driving performance and continuous improvement whilst leading high-quality services and effective ways of working. You will lead the work of the School Nursing teams in their planning and reviewing of service delivery to ensure its high-quality to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and their families.

This is an extremely exciting time for our School Nursing teams in Suffolk as we have invested heavily in our School Nursing provision with additional frontline staffing capacity to enable the full delivery of the Healthy Child Programme. This additional resource will enable early identification of needs for those within and outside of a school setting and opportunities to work with children, young people and families to improve public health outcomes.

We offer an attractive employment package, ideal for keeping a healthy work-life balance, including:

  • Monday - Friday working
  • flexible hours
  • part time hours
  • job share
  • a car leasing scheme
  • commitment to offering training and professional development opportunities.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.

If you are as passionate and committed as we are in driving high-quality care and effective outcomes for children, young people and families, please apply or contact Tara Saunders on 07415 799474 or Jo Nelson on 07894 231206 for an informal discussion.
