Band 3 administrator:

Make a difference today - support children and young people with complex health needs to access their education.

This term-time only role is an exciting opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic administrator to work within new and existing special school nursing service in across Kent.

The Special Schools Nursing Team is looking for the equivalent of two Band 3 administrators to join our team.

We work with families and partnership agencies to support school staff and make sure they are appropriately trained and competent for students to access school safely. We want to make sure school staff understand the child's condition and the potential impact it has on the student and their families.

This role will be based at Capital House, Faversham, however there may be times where this this post holder needs to visit the nursing teams within the schools so driving is essential.

It is essential that you are highly proficient in IT skills, including Word, Excel and email, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Previous experience with an EPR (Electronic Patients Record) system would be an advantage.

This role is 22.5 to 37.5 hrs per week in the school term-time only.

Successful applicants are required to have the qualification level specified in the person specification in order to carry out the job, however, we do welcome applicants from individuals wishing to further their knowledge and skills and to gain this recognised qualification, which we will support. So if you do not have the essential qualification for the role, this may not be an automatic barrier to you being offered an interview.

If you are successful at interview but do not have the essential qualification for the role, we will employ you as trainee and will support you to gain this qualification. You will develop new skills and knowledge whilst working with an established team, gaining valuable work experience and continuing to get paid. Once you receive the qualification you will automatically move into the position advertised.

Interviews are scheduled for 2nd November 2020.

Please contact Rebecca Lee on 07342 071182 for an informal discussion if you would like to know more about the post and special school nursing service.
