It’s been an exciting time at Welsh Ambulance as we continue our journey of “Being our Best”, enabling our #RemarkablePeople to deliver exceptional standards of patient care and creating a skilled, professional and healthy workforce.

Developing and sustaining a healthy workforce is integral to our vision at the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust. Our progress over recent years has been significant with the introduction of our in-house Occupational Health Team and Wellbeing Support Service, providing easily accessible, quality health and wellbeing services to our people. Over the last 12 months our services have developed further with the introduction of the Trauma Risk Management (TriM) programme, with practitioners providing care and support to our people when it’s needed most.

We are determined to develop our existing services further as well as introducing new evidence-based approaches to support the health and wellbeing of our people. Consequently, we now seek an experienced Occupational Health and Wellbeing Support Manager to lead and develop the existing Team to provide a high quality, workforce-focused and innovative service for our people.

Your exceptional communication and engagement skills will enable you to influence the strategic direction of the Trust to continually improve the health and wellbeing of its employees. You will also be keen to develop the existing Occupational Health and Wellbeing Services to ensure that Trust continues to adopt a forward-thinking approach, advocating for physical and mental health and wellbeing, and engaging with a range of stakeholders to deliver exceptional service standards.

You will be a registered Nurse with an MSc (or be working towards) in Occupational Health, or be able to demonstrate evidence of substantial relevant experience. With proven leadership skills, you will have also have significant experience of planning, implementing, managing and evaluating programmes of Occupational Health care.

In return, we are keen to support your development and individual career ambitions, with access to high quality training, CPD opportunities and an annual Personal Development Review to ensure that you too can be your best.
