Due to expansion of our team, a rare opportunity has become available to join Swindon Borough Council’s Family Nurse Partnership Team due the retirement of a current team member. The Family Nurse Partnership is a national licenced programme that sits within Swindon’s Public Health Nursing Team. The Family Nurse Partnership team are a friendly, innovative and highly skilled team that come from a range of registered health backgrounds.

This is a demanding specialist role that requires a high level of professional skills and practice to work with young women who are expecting their first baby.

As a registered nurse or midwife, you will have a strong knowledge and active working experience within the safeguarding arena that is essential for this role. The successful candidate must be adaptable and creative in their work, happy to use role play on a daily basis and create a safe space for clients to develop self-efficacy and skills for parenthood.  Ideally they will have experience working within the Healthy Child Programme but a thorough knowledge of the impact areas will be accepted.

Full training will be given to the successful candidate, along with peer support, enhanced supervision packages and access to both National and local study days. 

In return for working as part of our team you will receive:

•             A wide range of training and career development opportunities  
•             25 days holiday
•             A career average revalued earnings (CARE) pension scheme
•             Leisure and Legal Services discounts
•             Eating Out, Shopping and Entertainment discounts
