£17,652 to £19,020 pa

Domestic Assistant, Leighton Hospital

3 fixed term posts, full time, 37.5 hours per week

2 x 8am – 4pm

1 x 2pm – 10pm 

Hospital domestic services staff make sure our hospitals are clean, comfortable places.
Domestic/cleaning work in a hospital is very different to other domestic jobs.

Domestic assistants, or cleaners, work in wards and other areas of a hospital as part of the cleaning team. They have a lot of contact with patients, and their family/visitors, so customer service is a large focus. We would expect you to use your customer service experience to help make patients’ hospital visits more pleasant.

No qualifications are usually needed to be a domestic assistant, but you need to be aware of hygiene issues, be discrete, be able to respect patients' rights to privacy and dignity, have a pleasant manner and work meticulously. We'll need you to be reliable, flexible, and a good team player.  

It's even better if you have a proven track record of being able to deliver a high quality domestic service.

This could be the role for you and we want to hear from you!

For more information or to arrange an informal visit please contact the Domestic Supervisors.
