Hours of work: 32.5 per week

A vacancy has arisen within our department, where our teams are committed to the provision of safe and effective patient care working alongside all of our colleagues to provide excellent care for our patients and maintaining and safe working environment at all times. We are looking for individuals who can demonstrate a positive "can do" attitude to work, and can demonstrate the qualities required of a caring professional working within the NHS. We are recruiting for caring, positive, and dependable people to join our team in the role of a Hospital Support Assistant (H.S.A).

Our H.S.A's are an integral part of the Hospitals operations, working on Wards and Departments providing all of our cleaning and catering responsibilities. The role is part of a wider team responsible for excellent standards of cleanliness, food hygiene and environmental safety. A typical day for a H.S.A would include cleaning the trolleys within the department, emptying bins, replenishing supplies, cleaning fixtures, furniture and toilet / bathroom areas. Also you will be required to order and maintain stock levels of paperwork, you will also need to be flexible in your role if required by the shift lead. If assigned the catering element you will deliver refreshments and meals to our patients and carry out pot washing.

Whilst a comprehensive training package will give you the skills and knowledge to work effectively as a H.S.A, we want to learn from your application how you can meet the minimum of the essential criteria in our person specification, and perhaps even exceed this minimum standard. We support the continuous development of our staff so regular refreshers of training take place. Both developmental and mandatory will be required, which on occasion may fall during non-working days due to shift patterns, for which you will receive either time of in lieu or additional pay. And finally, our environment can be often placed under operational challenge which requires some flexibility, team working and a joined working approach to ensure our patients receive the best care possible, so we would also be interested in understanding how you might be able to help us deliver services in such an environment.
