Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust provides Integrated Contraception & Sexual Health (iCaSH) across Bedford, Cambridgeshire, Milton Keynes, Norfolk, Peterborough and Suffolk.

The service delivers care specifically to meet the needs of its diverse population. The Norfolk service is community based with three main clinics in Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Kings Lynn, providing contraception, sexual health and HIV care and treatment.

The successful candidate will join a team of friendly, highly skilled and experienced medical, nursing and allied health professionals, supported by clinic assistants and administrative staff, all delivering a high standard of care to patients at our Great Yarmouth clinic. Working alongside the teams in Norwich and Kings Lynn, you must be prepared to travel if required.

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Registered Nurse or Midwife with a strong team-working ethic to join our team as a Contraception Clinical Nurse Specialist. Applicants will need to demonstrate extensive knowledge and experience of Contraception services and method provision. Competency in LARC procedures would be advantageous, but is not essential. If you do not hold LARC fitting competencies, a willingness to undertake training will be required.

You will need to be enthusiastic and passionate about patient centred care, an excellent team player but also be able to work independently when needed. You will also need to be able to work with a diverse range of clients in an innovative sexual health setting.
