Band 6- Public Health Nurse -Looked after Children

We are currently recruiting for part time and full time posts for the Looked after Children's team to support our Looked After Child Programme. This is a great opportunity to support and assess the needs of vulnerable children across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

You will work with children and young people within the local authority in conjunction with families and care givers, to maximise their health potential and address their health inequalities. You will manage a team of band 5 nurses, who assess the health of this vulnerable group of children and young people and implement any necessary care pathways.

As the ideal candidate you would need to be able to demonstrate a strong desire to improve the quality of our service delivery, working closely in partnership with our multidisciplinary colleagues.

You will be responsible for attending or contributing to safeguarding meetings, case conferences, Looked After Children’s reviews, pathway planning meetings, professional meetings and strategy meetings, to support the delivery of needs for this vulnerable group of children through the effective management of your team.

You must have previous safeguarding experience. The ability to work on your own initiative demonstrating a well organised and flexible approach to the management of change and conflicting priorities is key to success within this role. Embracing our values of compassion, trust, respect and integrity, in return you will you be supported by our FYPC service to develop your leadership and service improvement skills.
