About Liva Healthcare
Demand for our weight management and diabetes management services is continuing to grow. This has created new opportunities for experienced registered dietitians, nutritionists and healthcare professionals to join us as Digital Health Coaches. If you are an effective multi-tasker, who excels in managing your own caseload and you’re passionate about providing the best possible care online, then we would love to hear from you.
At Liva we do not go to work, just to work, but because we are fortunate enough to help people improve their chronic conditions. Having relationship-focused, professional and caring Health Coaches to deliver our programmes, is not only important but a top priority.
Our Health Coaches deliver support to people in our digital programmes, remotely supporting a caseload of service-users across a 3–12-month period (programme-dependent), providing both 1-to-1 and peer group support through our app and video consultations.
Key to this is the application of excellent behavioural change skills, working through any potential barriers to engagement and keeping service-users committed to achieving their outcomes throughout the programme.
You will have the opportunity to undertake training in motivational interviewing and behavioural change in order to support you in delivering successful coaching through the evidence-based Liva Coaching Model theoretical framework.
You will be supported by a registered healthcare professional as your Coach Team Lead throughout and provided with relevant training to help you succeed in the role.
