Skills and Experience:

  • Proven experience in health promotion or public health.
  • Experience supporting individuals with physical and mental health difficulties in a customer-facing environment.
  • Excellent rapport-building skills with a range of customers and stakeholders.
  • A health qualification registered with HCPC, BACP, or BABCP is advantageous.
