A bit about us

St Andrew’s is the UK’s leading mental health charity with an excellent and well-deserved reputation as a provider of specialist mental healthcare. We have a multi-disciplinary team of around 5,000 delivering world-class, innovative, holistic care across four main locations. Through individualised rehabilitation and recovery, our focus is transforming the lives of patients through a seamless transition down levels of security and back into the community. As a charity, we always put patients first, while re-investing surpluses for their benefit.

The role

This is a great opportunity to join our brilliant Occupational Health team as we begin preparations for our annual flu programme. Once the programme is underway from September, you will be responsible for running flu clinics across our services and sites for patients, clinical and non-clinical staff. You will also act as an enthusiastic champion for immunisation and promote the personal, heath and business benefits.

A bit more about you

You will be happy working as part of a team but also able to work effectively as a lone practitioner. You will hold a current NMC registration, up to date annual immunisation and anaphylaxis training and have plenty of experience in giving immunisations and managing medication. We have challenging targets to achieve so need you be adaptable and to have initiative and a commitment to achieving results. A current UK driving licence and access to the use of a car is essential for our clinics outside of Northampton.

Our patients and your colleagues will expect you to live the St Andrew’s CARE values of Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Excellence every single day.
