UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative Project Lead

Barking Havering and Redbridge University NHS Trusts (BHRUT) is one of the most forward thinking Maternity units in London, serving a diverse population across a large geographical area. Midwives working in the unit gain significant skills in caring for high risk women as well as being autonomous practitioners for midwifery led care. BHRUT are proud to have recently been awarded RCM runner up for Midwifery service of the year and mentor of the year.

We have a unique partnership with the Virginia Mason Institute (VMI) and are working with our staff to embed their principles and guidance in ‘The PRIDE Way’ of improvement and culture at BHRUT. The Virginia Mason programme helps us all to review what we do, how we do it, when we do it, why we do it, and let’s not forget who we do it to. 

An opportunity has arisen for you to join our award winning Maternity Public Health Team.

You will be responsible for effectively implementing a programme of activity to achieve UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) UK best practice standards at BHRUT

You will have excellent communication, organisation and management skills. You will be dynamic and innovative with the knowledge, drive, enthusiasm and motivation to lead the service to achieve stage 3 of the Baby Friendly Initiative.

We would be pleased to interview highly motivated practitioners who meet the essential components of this post.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
