The Royal Osteoporosis Society
Bath, Somerset (On-site)
£34062 per annum
Permanent, Full-time
Job description

Role overview
The Royal Osteoporosis Society is the only UK-wide organisation dedicated to finding a cure for osteoporosis and improving the lives of everyone affected by it. We help the nation look after its bones and appreciate the importance of bone health for everybody.

More than three million people in the UK are affected by osteoporosis. But unlike other common, chronic conditions, osteoporosis has a low-profile. Only around one in four adults are aware of what the condition means, and it has been discussed significantly less over the last five years than most other chronic conditions.

In this exciting role reporting directly to the Nurse Manager, the post holder will work as part of the team of osteoporosis specialist nurses, providing information and support to people using a range of communication channels and contributing to information resources produced by the charity in both printed and digital formats.

As an osteoporosis specialist nurse, you will answer osteoporosis enquires via telephone, email, letter and digital channels such as live chat and social media channels, to provide information on all aspects of osteoporosis and related issues.

We’re looking for a Registered General Nurse with minimum of three years’ experience at Band 5 or 6, with a knowledge of osteoporosis and the ability to listen to and support people at risk of/with osteoporosis/fractures and their carers, who is able to work self-directed on projects and to adapt quickly to this different role.

Our offices are based in Bath, but we have a very flexible approach and dependant on location, there is flexibility for remote working or on a hybrid basis.

The role offers up to 37.5 hours per week, and we would welcome full-time or part-time (minimum of 22.5 hours) applicants. We particularly welcome qualified applicants from ethnic minorities as they are under-represented in the team.

If you are looking to join a fantastic organisation and team where you can really make a difference, we’d love to hear from you.

How to apply
To apply, applicants should provide a comprehensive CV, including details of relevant experience and achievements. This should be supplemented by a supporting statement in a cover letter, demonstrating how your skills and experience meet the person specification.

The closing date is midnight on 31 January 2022.
