Then Halton Health Improvement Team needs you...
We are looking for 2 confident, motivated and approachable Lifestyle Advisors to help support our Weight Management and Exercise on Referral Programmes.
These posts are offered on a fixed term 12 month basis.
We require candidates with coaching skills that can work with clients - online and in person - to improve their overall health and well-being. So the ability to develop individualized plans to assist clients in achieving specific health and wellness goals is a must. Due to COVID restrictions the ability to work remotely and offer advice and support using application software is a must.
You will be working closely with a variety of health professionals to target adults in special population groups such as cardiac rehabilitation, pulmonary rehabilitation, stroke rehabilitation and more.
Successful applicants will have a recognised Level 3 GP referral qualification and a willingness to undertake a recognised Level 4 exercise qualification such as BACPR.
So if you are looking to make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of the local community using the skills you have, and are open to developing new and innovative ways of increasing the impact of our services then we want to hear from you!
