Role

Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to. A core part of how we support people living with our conditions is through our award winning Advice Line.

The aim of Advice Line is to provide confidential, independent information, advice, support and ongoing caseload management to people affected by chest, heart and stroke illness (including COVID-19 & Long Covid), their families, carers and health professionals.

We are seeking someone who has experience of working with individuals who have a chest, heart or stroke illness and / or who have experience in telephone based support, to join the Advice Line team at an exciting time of expansion, and contribute to the ongoing development of the service in the delivery of the charity’s No Life Half Lived strategy.

We will expect you to be a registered healthcare professional within the UK and be regulated by an appropriate statutory body, have experience in working with people affected by chest, heart and / or stroke illness, excellent communication and organisational skills, be confident in IT and able to work under pressure to a high professional standard using own initiative.

CHSS employees enjoy a variety of organisational benefits including: Company pension scheme, generous holiday allowance, company sick pay, health insurance, Childcare vouchers, employee welfare support and life assurance.
