We are looking to recruit a dynamic, motivated and enthusiastic Band 3 Healthcare Assistant who has a passion for delivering high quality care within a community setting.

This is an ideal opportunity for anyone looking for a career within healthcare or an existing Band 3 Healthcare Assistant who wants to develop their clinical knowledge and practice within the community. Community and healthcare experience is desirable but not essential as training will be given to develop the skills and knowledge required for this role, e.g. insulin administration, wound care, completing observations, and venepuncture.

If you possess excellent caring, organisational and communication skills, a “can do” attitude, and a desire to be the best, then this may be the job for you. If you are passionate about making a difference and want to contribute to a team that is continuously striving to achieve excellence then we would love to hear from you.

Although this is a full time post we welcome applicants wanting part time hours as we may be able to accommodate two new part time members of staff.

In return we can offer you:

  • Flexible working patterns – this will include working weekends
  • Supportive learning environment
  • Dedicated career pathways and great opportunities for continuing professional development
  • Practice Development Nurses to support staff in developing skills and competencies
  • Commitment to and support for your wellbeing
  • NHS Pension Scheme
  • NHS discount and salary sacrifice schemes
