School Immunisation Nurse - Redbridge
Location: Borough of Redbridge
Salary: Excellent rates of pay £20-23 per hour Inclusive of Holiday pay at 12.07%
We have a great opportunity to join our school immunisation teams to make a difference to child health in this location. VUK provide Fluenz, HPV, Men ACWY and DTP to schools in the borough of Redbridge.
The service will primarily be delivered on-site in schools for children in primary and secondary schools in the borough, but due to the pandemic situation, we will also be delivering these immunisations in community clinic settings.
This will be on a bank contract from September 2020 to provide school aged immunisations including HPV and nasal flu immunisations across Redbridge. The hours of work will be from 0830 until the end of the school day, or the immunisation session. You must be able to arrive on time and stay until needed.
We are seeking nurses for school and clinic sessions to start from September onwards. You just need to provide us with your availability, and there is the opportunity to work up to 5 days per week to suit you. As a result of the type of work we do, a flexible approach to working is required. In return, we are offering a very competitive hourly rate, a friendly and supportive working environment.
If you are an RN with an interest in child health, and have experience in giving immunisations, ideally with a practice nurse, school nurse or community nursing background, we would love to hear from you. You will have the opportunity to work both autonomously, and as part of a small team to organise, plan, deliver, and evaluate immunisation and vaccination programmes for this school - based programme.
We require you to have mandatory training in place which should include Safeguarding Children and Adults at level 2, FGM, Prevent and Immunisation Training.
This post is subject to all training being completed or with a completion date set prior to starting. Without this training, you will not be able to undertake this role. We can provide training for any of these areas that are not currently in date, with prior notice.
Knowledge of Health and Safety issues is essential. There will be substantial access to children; therefore, an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check will be required and sign up to the update service is part of our requirements.
Interviews may be held remotely on Zoom or MS Teams due COVID-19 social distancing measures.
