MASTA is the UK’s leading independent service provider in the growing field of travel health and as part of our on-going expansion, we have a unique opportunity available.
The role of a Telephone Consultation Nurse is key for MASTA. Our nurses use specialist clinical judgment, to provide preventative, lifesaving advice in a modern and flexible environment. Whilst a degree of travel health experience is preferred, comprehensive training is provided for the right candidate.
“Travel health is such a positive aspect of nursing and it is constantly evolving. For the majority of the time I’m speaking with people who are looking forward to going away so it’s great to learn about their travel plans and rewarding to provide advice from a health promotion point of view. I had no previous experience in travel health before arriving at MASTA so it has been quite a challenge, but the training I received was comprehensive. The team are friendly, welcoming and universally supportive; I’m thrilled that I joined the team and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else”Claire Fleming, Tele-consult Nurse.
- You will be a Registered General Nurse ideally with a minimum of two years post registration experience.
- The role is office based, working alongside other nurses and our award winning medical team. Given the nature of the role, telephone consultation experience is essential together with good IT and customer service skills, and an open and friendly manner.
- You will need the ability to work well under pressure with a focus on time management and an excellent attention to detail. As above, experience in travel health is preferred but not essential as full training will be given.
