Update on our Professional Development Officer opportunity

30th November 2020

Since we advertised the opportunity to come and join team iHV, we have had some changes to the iHV team. As a result, we are now able to offer the Professional Development Officer PIMH post as a permanent job. Furthermore, there is not a preference to being based in the South.

As such, we have revised the offer and also extended the deadline for applications to 14 December and the interview date to 17 December.


The iHV is seeking to appoint a full-time health visitor expert in perinatal and infant mental health and practice development to work with them supporting their European project, training and various other related projects, as well as covering some national meetings, a job share would be considered.

The post holder, who will have a master’s degree, will be home based and prepared to travel within the post, mostly within the UK, but potentially also to European countries. They will ideally be an iHV perinatal and infant mental health (PIMH) Champion or a specialist health visitor for PIMH, have broad experience in these fields, with additional research, or project development experience.

A confident self-starter, they will deliver the requirements of our European project, deliver training, attend meetings, facilitate regional iHV PIMH Champion Forums and input advice to other work streams on request.

The post holder will be highly respected by colleagues for their capacity to drive and deliver local professional developments.

This is a permanent full-time position and a job share would be considered.

Applications close: 9am Monday 14 December 2020

Interviews: 17 December 2020 (please keep this clear)
