Are you passionate about public health, early intervention and offering the right help at the right time? Are you looking for new and exciting challenges to develop your skills and take your career to the next level? Do you want to be part of a team that strives for excellence and offers true support to all its members? If the answer is yes, then we want to hear from you.

There has never been a better time to join Swindon Borough Council’s Public Health Nursing Team! Due to the recent remodelling of Swindon’s Early Help offer to families, we are looking for dynamic, innovative and energetic individuals to join us. We have exciting and rewarding roles within our 0-19 team for the right candidates and are looking for people who share our vision of ‘‘One Children’s Service - Consistently Good Everyday’.

Health Visitors are a valued part of our team, who work with the multiagency team to empower children, young people and families to make healthy lifestyle choices. They are able to identify when extra help may be required and offer the appropriate support or signposting as needed. 

The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills and able to build effective working relationships with a wide range of people. They will have exceptional time management and organisational skills and a resilient, brave and connected mind set. The ability to travel throughout the Borough is essential and therefore a car driver would be preferable. 

Candidates must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer-facing role).

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
