The Bridge Renewal Trust in partnership with Haringey GP Federation and North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group are delivering a new Pan-Haringey Diabetes Care Navigation Service. 

As a Care Navigator, you will provide support to people whose diabetes is not well managed or who are not engaging with health professionals, in particular, deprived and vulnerable groups within this cohort. You will support people to access diabetes information and/or education in their own language, improve their ability to navigate the health and care system and improve their confidence to self-manage their condition. This is a new and exciting approach to working with people with diabetes in Haringey.

The Bridge Renewal Trust is a charity that delivers practical ways that people can live healthier, long and fulfilling lives – thus playing our part in working towards reducing health inequalities and building stronger communities.

Are you a passionate and dynamic individual with excellent organisational and interpersonal skills; and a proven track record of working in a multi-disciplinary team, working closely with GP practices and other healthcare professionals, the general public and voluntary sector? Ability to speak Somali, Bengali or another Haringey community language would be desirable.

We are currently recruiting for a Care Navigator who will enable people to better utilise resources in the voluntary and community sector.  This will in part be by direct work with individuals, and also by collating information about voluntary and community resources locally, to share with individuals and health professionals in clinics and GP practices.

This is a unique opportunity to join a progressive organisation where we value and reward the performance of our staff. 

To apply, please email your CV with contact details of two referees, a supporting statement demonstrating how you meet the requirements set out in the Person Specification and completed equal opportunities monitoring form.
