An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our friendly team as an audio Typist in the Pain Team at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

You will be responsible for typing clinical and administrative letters, answering telephone enquiries and dealing with patient queries, as well as general administrative tasks.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate the ability to work well under pressure, to prioritise the demands of a busy office, and manage their time and workload effectively.
