Healthcare & Education Officer


The Paget’s Association, the UK’s only charity supporting people with Paget’s disease of bone, is looking to recruit a Healthcare & Education Officer to build on the excellent work done by the current post holder.

We are looking for an exceptional individual educated to degree level who is able to play a key role in the following areas: 

  • developing the Association’s health and education programmes and education strategy
  • operating and monitoring a help line
  • developing and delivering health education programmes to a variety of audiences
  • the production of information to meet the needs of both lay people and health professionals. 

The post is full-time (37.5 hours) but there are flexible working options available.  For example the role can be home-based for part of the time, although the post holder would be expected to work from the office on a regular basis. The position is permanent subject to a satisfactory 6 month probation period.  Salary, terms and conditions will be based on Band 6 nursing scale in the range of £25,528 to £34,189.  The start point would be dependent upon experience.  The Association operates a company pension scheme with 8% employer’s contribution.  Appointment would be subject to satisfactory references and a Criminal Record Disclosure (Enhanced Level).

The successful candidate must be self-motivated and self-administering, able to organise and prioritise his/her own workload.  Experience of musculoskeletal conditions is essential, as is the ability to communicate with a wide range of audiences.  An important part of the work will be the continuing development of the Association’s information system, so knowledge or experience of the Dept of Health’s Information Standard Scheme would be advantageous.

Application is by e-mail to using a CV, covering letter, supplementary form, with a translation exercise which all candidates must complete. 

The Paget’s Association works within Equal Opportunities Principles.

Closing date for applications is:   Friday 2nd March 2012
