It is anticipated that the candidate will have already commenced training for the Level 3 Health Screeners Diploma (Diabetic Eye) but full support will be provided to ensure completion, as required.

Location: Havering/NE London DESP

Salary: £22,000  £26,000 depending on experience

Closing Date: 30th December

Description:

Havering Diabetic Eye Screening programme, is a well established and successful service, which has originally been built on Optometry practice based eye screening. 

At Diabetic Eye Screening Ltd, we have chosen to extend our eye screening services for Havering, into a modern, multi purpose health Centre at Gooshays Drive in Harold Hill near Romford. We are already running a busy service, operating Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 6.00pm, with several experienced eye screeners and graders and SLB screeners also.

Job Description:

We are looking for a moderately experienced eye screener to work FT at the centre alongside our existing, experienced screeners, so to offer support with our more demanding patients, and to help manage a double clinic, performing 30 plus screenings per day.

Both salary and hours can be discussed, and this will depend on experience and willingness to work quickly and efficiently, to increase our screening output from the centre.

There may be an option to work a 40 hour week in 4 days, which may appeal to some, as long as we get a high output on numbers screened.

You will be mostly working with the support of a more experienced colleague in a fairly busy and pressured environment, but without management being present. There is a need for a cool head, and the ability to work within a small team, building trust and efficiency, to the benefit of both the patients and your colleagues. You will be the constant at the centre, taking on a bit more of a part management position, ensuring each clinic day is prepared for correctly and reporting to those in charge. 

You will have constant support both at the centre, and via phone and email of our network of 5 optometry practices, situated in the surrounding area around Romford.

Qualifications:

You must be a qualified Screener, with at least 12 months of FT work experience after passing the diploma.
