Job Description

An exceptional opportunity is available at Teesside University for an Occupational Health Adviser to lead the in house Occupational Health service, encompassing referrals, advice and guidance alongside delivery of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy and its Action Plans, health promotion activities and coordination of the Empoloyee Assistance Programme. This all-inclusive role requires the successful candidate to have current NMC registration as an RN Level 1 and SCPHN (OH) on part 3 of the register. It is desirable that the candidate hold a Diploma or Degree in a relevant discipline.

The post holder should have experience in the provision of sickness absence case management, particularly in relation to the handling of mental health and stress, and show the ability to work as an autonomous practitioner in managing their own work as a specialist within Occupational Health.

The role is busy and varied involving a wide range of occupational health services for the staff of the University and the external customers.  The main duties would be to undertake health screening and provide specialist services in sickness absence management as well as providing advisory services for staff, managers and external customers.  You would also lead the health and wellbeing agenda for the University encouraging staff to adopt healthy lifestyles by promoting a wide range of  options through regular health promotion campaigns and health monitoring programmes.

The role is an integral part of our Health and Wellbeing provision, operating from our Health and Wellbeing Centre, and you would work alongside colleagues in Human Resources, Employee Engagement, Health and Safety, and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion to provide an integrated and cohesive service to the University. Additionally, the role maintains close links with external and community professionals including liaison with local public health and Council networks and is responsible for engagement in the Better Health at Work Award Scheme, currently at Continuing Excellence standard. Occasional offsite visits may be required and therefore the post holder is required to be able to travel independently.

Informal enquiries are welcomed.  Please contact Philip Ratcliff, Acting Director of HR if you wish to discuss this opportunity in more detail or have any questions – 01642 342200. Visits are also welcomed.

The University currently operates a hybrid working model, normally 60% on Campus and 40% remote working, and which is available for this role, noting there is a need for face to face appointments and consultations to be an integral part of the Occupational Health service weekly delivery.

This post is available on a full-time or job share basis. If you wish to apply on a job share basis you must state this on your application.
