The Job

Working life

As you carry out your duties you will be the “face” of facilities services, interacting with patients, staff and visitors.  

You’ll work under the guidance of our supervisors and team leaders, who will support you in making sure our patients are the top priority. Your day will be varied as you work on a rotational rota, providing cleaning duties week 1 and helping support our meals and drinks service on week 2.  

You may come across some distressing situations when supporting our wards.  All our staff have access to a suite of support services plus our own dedicated occupational health team should you need to access this.

You will also be provided with and trained on the use of full personal protective equipment where required.

Entry requirements

We recognise not everyone will have the exact skills we are looking for, so if you can demonstrate a good level of English and maths and how you can bring to life our Trust values when conducting your role, we can support you with the rest. 

Skills and personal characteristics needed

Being a Hospital Support Assistant is about more than just the practical skills. We are looking for people who share our values and can demonstrate compassion and a caring ethos. Are you kind, cheerful and friendly? Are you willing to go the extra mile when service pressures hit? Are you able to work in a team but use your own initiative? Can you communicate well with others? Are you able to show care and understanding to the needs of others? This is what we are looking for in our employees, we can teach you the role but the ability to care is within.

Training and development

We offer full training when you join our friendly teams. 

We will guide you through our detailed induction programme to ensure you are confident in your role and can offer the highest quality of service to our patients.

With experience and further training, there is always opportunity to further your career; you could become our next facilities supervisor or team leader or move into clinical roles such as a Healthcare Assistant, to name but a few.

Pay and benefits

We understand that the balance between work and home life is important.  We offer a number of different working patterns, including days, weekends, earlies and evenings.  You will be paid on the Agenda for Change (AFC) pay system, starting on band 2, which also attracts enhancements for unsocial hours, including weekends and bank holidays.

You’ll also have access to our generous pension scheme, extensive suite of staff support including a 24-hour employee assistance scheme, health service discounts, as well as 27 days of annual leave, plus bank holidays, which increases the longer you’re in service.
