This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic, self-motivated person interested in health and wellbeing. It would suit either a qualified person or someone keen to train as an Occupational Health Technician willing to contribute to the provision of a comprehensive and proactive Occupational Health Service for the staff at the University of St Andrews.
The role is to undertake a variety of health surveillance within an established program of repeated health checks which are used to identify possible ill health caused by work. This role will focus on expanding the current provision of health surveillance.
Working as a key member of the Occupational Health team, you will be responsible for providing a high-quality service, focussing on pro-active clinical provision. You will be required to plan and undertake the full remit of health surveillance activities, interpreting data and present the results in report form as required.
Experience in a similar role would be advantageous but not essential as full training can be provided. However, you must be able to demonstrate an interest in health and wellbeing and an ability to motivate others and work as part of a team.
To deliver the above you will have excellent organisational, interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to work independently supported by the Occupational Health Manager.
*The role will move to grade 5/£28,762-£34,308 per annum upon successful completion of training with an amended job description.
The appointment will be subject to a Clear PVG Check for working with protected adults, initiated by the University.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, people from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community, and other protected characteristics who are under-represented in professional posts at the University.
