Job Description

Healthy Child Programme Screening Technician

5-19 Healthy Child Team

Hours: 30 per week
Band: 3
Salary: £16,800 to £19,655 per annum, pro rata

Essential requirements:

NVQ 3 in relevant area such as early years, customer service, youth work, learning support or equivalent qualification

Are you passionate about working with children in a school and community setting? Have you a NVQ level 3 in early years, customer service, youth work, learning support or equivalent qualification? Have you experience of working with young people and families? Are you a team player? Are you enthusiastic and motivated?

If you have answered yes to all these statements then the 5 -19 Healthy Child Team are looking for a person to join their small team of screening technicians who cover the Harrogate and Ripon area, carrying out screening for the 5 – 19 population of children and Young people.

The role is very demanding and there are strict deadlines to meet in-line with the commissioned service we deliver, so the successful person must have the ability to work independently and or as part of the team being flexible at all times. The nature of the role involves liaising with schools and carrying out screening to cover vision, hearing and completing the National Child Measurement Programme. The job involves administration tasks and data in-putting so the successful candidate will require good I.T. skills to fulfil the requirements of the role.

You will need to effectively engage with your patients, peer groups, and service users in all elements of your role, leading by example and promoting a supportive and caring culture. This will require an inclusive, transparent, open approach to your role, whereby you are happy to be accountable to others and to go that extra mile when required. If you have the drive, motivation and passion to work with children in primary and junior schools, in term time only, then this job is for you.

Due to the nature of the role it is essential that applicants are able to travel independently across the locality and have access to a suitable vehicle for business purposes. If necessary adjustments can be considered in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
