Working for us

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

During the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, we want to support our local community as much as you are supporting us. 

We are looking for members of the public who can join us for a few months of paid work, in a variety of roles across the Trust.

AHP (allied health professional), HCA (healthcare assistant) and registered nurse or midwife

We are asking for people to sign up to our Bank - the Trust's own internal agency - to support with roles across the hospital ranging from Allied Healthcare Professionals, Registered Nursing/Midwifery and Unregistered roles such as healthcare assistants.    

This could also include receptionist roles, or supporting our staff with helping to wash and feed patients.

Previous care experience is required for patient-facing roles.

To apply to join the Bank, please see Join the bank

Admin and clerical

Thank you to everyone who has applied for these roles.

We have enough applications for now, but the situation may change later, so we may ask for your help again.

Housekeeping roles (cleaning and portering)

We are also looking for staff to work in housekeeping roles, including cleaning and portering.

This paid work would be through our facilities management provider, Serco.

You will need to email your interest, including any work experience if you have, along with your name and contact details, to one of the three available email addresses. 

Full training will be provided for every role, both through the Bank and with Serco.
