City of York Council is offering an exciting opportunity to join our developing 0-19 Healthy Child Service. We are looking for a high quality, innovative, enthusiastic and forward thinking Health Visitor with a passion for delivering the best outcomes for children. If you feel this could be you then we want to hear from you.

Working as a Health Visitor in York offers an opportunity to be pro-active in the delivery of the healthy child programme whilst being committed to delivering a high quality service to clients.

York is a great place to live and work. On almost every indicator, health, wellbeing and happiness in York is well above the national average. We know that isn’t the case for everybody though and that is where the Healthy Child Service comes in.

The successful candidates will join the Healthy Child Service in working alongside early help services, housing, adult services, the police, the voluntary and community sectors, the wider health economy and, of course, families and communities themselves to help ensure every child and young  person has the best possible start in life.

You would work across the city and operate out of one of the following office bases:

  • Clifton Children’s Centre
  • The Avenues (Tang Hall) Children’s Centre
  • Hob Moor Children’s Centre

The Council is highly committed to investing in the talent and wellbeing of our staff and can offer a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, comprehensive Health & Wellbeing initiatives and a reward package which recognises your contribution. We can offer flexible working practices, community engagement and volunteer activities and, as part of our commitment to you, promote continuous Learning & Development. In addition we also offer a growing range of discounts, rewards and savings.

As this role is public facing, applicants will need to demonstrate, at interview, their competency to converse and provide advice and guidance to members of the public, in spoken English to CEFR level C1: Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously, almost effortlessly. Only a conceptually difficult subject can hinder a natural, smooth flow of language.

City of York Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment. We require the successful candidate to undertake an enhanced Criminal Record check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
