A vacancy has arisen within our Estates and Facilities Services Directorate, where our teams are committed to the provision of safe and effective patient care working alongside all of our colleagues to provide excellent Facilities for our patients, staff and visitors. 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 (HSA).

Our HSAs 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 HSA would include wet mopping, vacuuming, emptying bins, replenishing supplies, cleaning fixtures, furniture and toilet/bathroom areas. 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 HSA, 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.

The right candidate would be working on a rota basis with hours from 09:00 – 13:00 or 13:00 - 17:00 within our Domestic department. This would include weekends.

Once appointed you will access the many benefits of working for the NHS including an excellent pensions scheme, increasing annual leave allowance of up to 41 days per annum (including bank holidays) once you have completed 10 years’ service, multiple discount schemes and the opportunity to develop and grow your skills within the NHS through our excellent training and development schemes.

We recommend applicants submit their on line application at the earliest opportunity as this vacancy will close once we receive 30 applications.
