Description

About us

Discover Momenta, set up in 2013, is a leading developer of evidence-based, outcome driven, healthy lifestyle solutions. These condition-specific services help people negotiate the many day to day challenges they face in living healthier lives, with a focus on weight management. Our senior team have worked together for almost 20 years and our passion is to support and empower as many people as possible with our cutting-edge programmes – safely and affordably. Our world-class behavioural interventions are delivered UK-wide in the heart of local communities. Our programmes’ excellent health outcomes were recognised by being highly commended at the Diabetes Quality in Care Awards 2020. 

Momenta Newcastle is a new subsidiary of Discover Momenta. Initially set up to support people with Type 2 diabetes to lose weight and, where possible, achieve remission, we were commissioned by NHS England as one of only two organisations to deliver their Low Calorie Diet national pilot in a group format. We launched this service in September 2020 in Birmingham and Solihull (virtually due to Covid) and are very pleased with progress so far.  We are delighted to have recently been selected to deliver the same Low Calorie Diet service in-person in the highlighted regions and are excited to expand our team of Coaches in these areas.  We have also been commissioned to deliver other Momenta programmes, including Weight Management and Cardiovascular disease (CVD) Prevention.

About the opportunity

We are now recruiting enthusiastic and suitably qualified Health and Wellbeing Coaches to deliver our Low Calorie Diet or Diabetes Remission programme to in-person groups of participants referred to us by their GP practices.  Delivery will be in appropriate health and community settings, subject to Covid-related guidelines.  You must be based in or able to travel to at least part of Somerset, Newcastle, the North East or North Cumbria.

Successful candidates will receive our highly-regarded comprehensive training, covering the underpinning theory and skills and techniques required to deliver the programme.  You will also receive detailed training in all relevant operational and organisational policies, processes and systems. We will pay you an attractive sessional rate to cover preparation, delivery, admin and other work associated with our group programme.  You can also discuss delivering other Momenta programmes virtually if you wish.

Your key responsibilities

  • Deliver our group-based Diabetes Remission programme in-person in a professional, engaging, timely and motivational way, in keeping with our training, programme, resources, quality standards and ethos
  • Adapt your delivery to best support the engagement and outcomes of all participants across your different groups - from their first to last sessions – giving them the best chance of succeeding in their weight loss and remission journeys over the long term
  • Record all relevant clinical, process and other monitoring information accurately and in a timely manner on our system and follow up appropriately internally and externally if data is missing or thresholds are breached
  • Assist your Manager and Adviser colleagues to plan your programme delivery
  • Actively promote the programme within the community, in line with guidance
  • Liaise with others as appropriate, including your colleagues (e.g. Medical Director, Manager, Advisers and other Coaches) and attend virtual monthly team meetings
  • Benefit from our quality assurance processes and access to our team of specialists
  • Proactively contribute ideas to improve the programme and service.


Requirements

We are looking for people who meet the following essential criteria:

  • Passionate about helping participants improve their health and wellbeing
  • Experience of delivering group-based programmes
  • Combine a confident, engaging and empathetic communication style with excellent facilitation and coaching skills (as distinct from instructing), with experience working with people from a wide range of backgrounds
  • Well organised and strong team player, self-motivated and punctual
  • Willing and able to travel to community delivery venues and, where appropriate, deliver virtually from home
  • Flexible with respect to working hours (must be able to deliver evening/weekend groups)
  • Willing and able to undertake initial training and ongoing CPD, reflecting on own delivery
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office applications and comfortable being trained to use new systems
  • Willing and able to deliver a structured, evidence-based programme as designed, setting personal beliefs aside if necessary
  • Excited about the prospect of supporting people with Type 2 diabetes improve their health and, where relevant, ideally put their diabetes into remission
  • Qualified nutritionist or dietitian
  • Based in or able to travel to at least part of Somerset, Newcastle, the North East or North Cumbria.

The following criteria are also desirable:

  • Specialism in weight management or Type 2 diabetes
  • Proficiency in additional spoken languages, especially Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali, Polish
  • Experience of working with GP practices and / or dietetics
  • Experience of virtual delivery to groups
