Senior Professional Officer (developmental role) vacancy with Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative – Apply now

We are looking for an enthusiastic health professional to become part of our dedicated team. The role will include taking part in, and eventually leading, assessments of maternity services, health visiting services, universities and neonatal units, supporting them to improve standards of care around infant feeding and parent-infant relationship building. The post holder will also be asked to teach on Baby Friendly courses for health professionals and to support the National Infant Feeding Network (NIFN).

This is a developmental role and so we are looking for some knowledge of the Baby Friendly standards and their application to practice, and some experience of implementing them in the UK. However, most importantly, we are looking for enthusiasm, good communication skills, lots of initiative and a professional approach, as well as a commitment to the Baby Friendly Initiative and a belief in implementing best practice standards as a mechanism to improve healthcare. You will be willing to travel UK wide frequently, including nights away from home.

This is a brilliant opportunity for someone looking to develop their career in upholding best practice standards of care for babies, mothers and their families.

Closing date: 5pm on Friday 19 July 2019

Interview date: 13 or 14 August 2019
