The Vacancy -
My client is a marketing focused, results oriented social enterprise. They develop efficient, effective and sustainable family planning programmes in the UK and overseas. The UK division provides services to men and women over 130,000 times a year.
My client is looking for experienced Nurses with a passion for gynaecology/sexual and reproductive healthcare to join our Essex team, working in our Essex Surgical Centre.
As a Nurse, you can expect to work in a busy and fast-paced environment, providing excellent clinical care and guidance to our clients, Day-to-day, you will work with the team offering services such as contraception, pregnancy testing, ultrasound scanning (training provided), unplanned pregnancy consultations, abortion, vasectomy, STI testing and treatment and cervical screening.
The Essex centre is open Monday-Saturday and the successful candidate will work 37.5 hours per week including two Saturdays a month. Shift patterns are variable with starts as early as 07:30, and finishing at 17:30. Later finishes are sometimes necessary.
Please be aware this is not a family planning role; it is RGN position where you will spend 80-90% of your time dealing with women going through medical or surgical terminations. For the first 12 - 18 months you will spend all of your time at the latter stages of a client journey with the company, i.e scrubbing in surgery and administering medical termination drugs. Only once you have had lots of exposure to this environment you can then start getting involved with the initial conversation, administering of MA drugs and discussing birth control options.
This due to the position involving a lot of questions from the client and you need to have a thorough knowledge of the area as to what the client can expect. Once you have a good understanding of the TOP procedure and client flow, you will start to rotate around the centre covering different areas and going on training sessions - such as ultrasound and ultimately having a more variety in your job.
