Employer: Department: Scheduling Co-ordinator Location: Westcliff House, Folkestone Salary: £19,737 - £21,142 pro rata per annum

The NHS is changing. More emphasis on community-based care means there's never been a better time to join us.

The CQC has rated us 'outstanding' and says that our colleagues feel supported, valued and respected, with high levels of staff and patient satisfaction.

Our vision is to deliver excellent local services which improve the health of our communities. To do this we need outstanding people who share our values (CARE). CARE stands for:
  • Compassionate
  • Aspirational
  • Responsive
  • Excellent

Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust is offering a new opportunity within the School Public Health service.

This role will be working alongside our Scheduling Co-ordinator, focusing on the task of scheduling and booking our front facing staff into schools to see Year R and Year 6 children for their hearing and vision checks, as well as height and weight measurements. The role will be based at Westcliff House in Folkestone and is primarily telephone and computer based, so minimal travel is required, however may be expected at times for meetings or training.

The role requires strong organisational skills and an understanding of spread sheets and other Microsoft packages, particularly Microsoft Outlook. You must be able to work logically and methodically and take pride in your work, whilst also being adaptable and open to changes that occur.

Other duties in the role include managing shared inboxes, downloading and presenting data, data inputting and sending referrals, therefore a good eye for detail and the ability to manage conflicting priorities is paramount. Due to the varied tasks you will need to be computer literate and able to pick up new tasks quickly.

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.

Please note interviews are expected to take place 22nd & 23rd October 2020 and are likely to be virtual.
