Develop your school nurse career in our Trust


Drive our new 0-19’s service

We’re delighted to have been awarded the contract to deliver the 0-19 Public Health Integrated Nursing Service in Leeds, and that’s where you come in. We’re looking for forward thinking, enthusiastic school nurses who will be able to get involved with shaping this new service.

This involves a one team approach as we bring together our health visiting and school nursing. You’ll be welcomed into supportive, dynamic and friendly teams; working together to deliver innovative solutions that best suits the needs of children and young people in our care.

So if you’re full of ideas or have experience as a school nurse already, this is your chance to help lead change.

Enhance your skills in the process

Play an integral role in implementing and promoting our new ChatHealth service; a confidential, safe and secure text messaging service allowing young people aged 11-19 to seek health advice. Knowledge and experience of facilitating this exciting new service will be a great addition to your skill set.

Flexible and agile working

We know how important work life balance is which is why a number of flexible working options are available once you’ve settled in to the post. This includes 9 day fortnights for full time staff and flexi days, all surrounding our core service hours. You’ll also benefit from agile working whereby you can work from the nearest base to suit your schedule of work. If you’d like to find out more specific information about this, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss.

We are able to offer 30 hours or 37.5 hours and are also happy to consider job shares.
