The role

Joining our dedicated team of nurses, you will support our Helpline and Ask Our Nurses service. The Nursing team includes an Associate Director, Senior Clinical Nurse Specialists, Clinical Nurse Specialists, and Sessional Helpline Nurses and trained Helpline staff.

You will act as a resource for clients, healthcare professionals and the wider public on the subject of breast health and breast cancer. This includes providing information and support to clients though our national Helpline, by email and social media.

The Helpline service runs from home throughout the week, and on Saturday mornings (the latter is optional, other than training days). The Helpline hours are 8:45am to 4.00pm. Team training usually occurs twice a year on Saturdays. You will be supported by a Senior Clinical Nurse Specialist and have regular clinical supervision. We are looking for candidates who are able to work at least one day (6.25 hours) per week.

About you

Do you have good communication skills and experience in breast care nursing? If so, we are really interested in hearing from you. This post could suit someone working part time in the NHS or private sector or for individuals who would like to use their information and support skills through our Helpline and Ask Our Nurses written enquiry service.
