Public Health Northamptonshire are seeking two highly motivated individuals to provide specialist stop smoking support to pregnant women in Northampton and Corby respectively.
Although you will be an integral part of the Stop Smoking Service, you will primarily be working with local maternity services to deliver smoking cessation interventions to expectant mothers. Using a combination of behavioural support, motivational interviewing, and e-cigarettes/nicotine replacement therapy, you will help pregnant women achieve a smoke free pregnancy.
The post holder will be responsible for promoting the benefits of stopping smoking during pregnancy, whilst simultaneously highlighting the consequences of continuing to smoke.
The Person:
The successful candidates will be empathic, professional, and passionate about improving the health of the public. You will be required to demonstrate previous experience of working in an evidence based setting in which clients have a variety of health and wellbeing needs. Applicants should also have a demonstrable understanding of smoking addiction, behaviour change, and local priorities in relation to smoking.
The Location:
Each Advisor, based in either Corby or Northampton, will provide support from a variety of locations including GP practices and children centres. Although you will be assigned to one particular area (Corby or Northampton), the Northamptonshire Stop Smoking Service operates at a county-wide level, and therefore the ability to travel and be open to working flexibly will be required.
