Health drop-in advisor

Are you kind, friendly and non-judgemental? Are you passionate about health and would you like to help others achieve their goals? And can you spare 2 hours a week?

The purpose of this role is to provide ‘Front of house' support for a free weight management drop-in session.

What you'll be doing:

- Weighing clients & recording their progress

- Handing out relevant supporting materials (leaflets, hand-outs etc.)

- Generally helping to organise the session (sign-in sheets, set-up, checking resources)

We are offering the drop-in session on behalf of Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) as part of their weight management programme. The service is community-based and designed to support people to achieve a gradual, long term weight loss by weighing in at a variety of community sites, accessing the ACE My Weight Matters online programme.


We are looking for someone who is;

- Kind, approachable and sympathetic. A non-judgemental attitude is key
