Band 2 Immunisation Team Admin Support Worker

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

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.

This role is an exciting opportunity to use your skill-set within the school setting. We are looking for an Admin Support Worker to join our School Health Service Immunisation Team to provide a comprehensive administrative role to support the delivery of the National Immunisation Programme to all children across the City of Manchester. You will have a key role in co-ordinating and scheduling the annual immunisation programme. You will support the nurses in school at immunisation sessions. Using your excellent communication skills you will liaise with a wide variety of people including School nurses, child health department, GPs, parents and carers.

The Immunisation Team is part of the Manchester School Health Service which has remodelled itself to incorporate School Nursing and Healthy Schools to fulfil the requirements of Manchester’s fast moving public health agenda. We are a forward thinking, progressive and dynamic service that works citywide to improve the wellbeing outcomes of our children and their families.

With all this in mind you need to have: strong interpersonal skills, be able to negotiate and communicate with a wide range of professionals from all levels in a confident manner. That means working as part of a team and building trusting relationships with children, young people and their families. The range of requirements for this position mean you’re comfortable working both independently and as part of a team. Good planning and organisational skills are key and a willingness to travel throughout the city to support team business as appropriate. Accordingly, you’ll need a full driving licence and your own car.

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. If you want a challenge, like working with a fast paced, dynamic team of professionals where your role will be integral to the smooth running day to day effectiveness of the team, then 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.
