The role will require you to drive either your own vehicle or the Trust’s van (Peugeot Partner or equivalent size) for business purposes and to hold a full driving licence that allows driving of manual vehicles. Due to the nature of work all successful applicants will also require an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) certificate.

You will be based at Bridge Park Plaza, Thurmaston, but will be required to travel throughout the area and pack and transport vaccines and equipment required by the team (maximum weight 10kg). At the schools, you will provide comprehensive administrative support to the immunisation nurses, ensuring that all vaccinations are accurately recorded in electronic format and that associated paperwork is available and handled confidentially and stored securely Strong IT skills and the ability to communicate effectively with children, school staff, nursing and administrative colleagues is essential.

You will need to work as part of a large, busy team and work will be allocated using a roster based on the needs of the service. The service operates between 7am until 5pm, Monday to Friday and some Saturdays 8am until 2pm. We will consider applicants who are able to work part-time hours. However, this service requires staff who can work in schools from 7am until 5pm at least two days per week.

Successful applicants must be able to attend interviews on MS Teams.

We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients. Some roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you in the recruitment process.

Where a role requires this, they will need to demonstrate that they meet this requirement during the recruitment process.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, these are set in advance at a team level and you will join an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date.

We will consider requests to work alternative hours or vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.
