Specialist Stop Smoking Advisor
Management Grouping: Adult Social Care & Health
Team: Public Health Team
Location: Civic Offices, Bexleyheath
Salary: £29,505 - £34,713 per annum
Contract: Permanent/36 hours per week
Closing Date: 20 June 2021
Job Reference: ASCH000204
You will be an experienced, motivated practitioner, who would be able to facilitate weekly stop smoking treatment and support sessions to Bexley residents. Initially support will be delivered remotely over the telephone as face-to-face sessions have been paused due to Covid-19. However, sessions were previously delivered in identified GP Practices and community settings across the London Borough of Bexley and we hope to return to that model in due course.
You will be responsible for the delivery of smoking cessation treatment and support, in line with evidence-based practice as recommended by the NCSCT, Public Health England and NICE guidance.
You will work autonomously and as part of a team and maintain accurate records using the Quit Manager smoking cessation database.
You will also be required to facilitate educational sessions for health practitioners to increase engagement with the service. Hours will include one evening per week and occasional weekend work.
A background in smoking cessation is essential and proven experience of treating and supporting tobacco dependent clients is essential for this role. Experience of supporting pregnant smokers to quit would be welcomed. Having a full driving licence is advantageous but not essential.
