We have high levels of staff in this role, meaning there are plenty of people to work alongside and help you. Our healthcare support workers are a friendly, supportive and dedicated group, who have a good sense of fun but are also professional. We also have a good management structure meaning that you have robust support from all levels.
This is also a role with good job security, benefits and pay. You also have the opportunity to work bank shifts in addition to your regular schedule, should you wish to do so.
There are no specific entry requirements for many of our healthcare support worker roles, meaning that we welcome applications and enquiries from all people. If you are a people person with some literacy and numeracy skills, healthcare support work could be for you. We offer lots of routes for career progression and want to support you to develop – many of our healthcare support workers have gone on to become senior healthcare support workers, nursing associates or nurses.
