We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, motivated and compassionate Health Care Assistant to join our inpatient nursing team to provide care centred on the patient’s individual needs.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a compassionate and caring approach to their care delivery, working with patients who have undergone surgery or been medically unwell to support their rehabilitation. They should also have a genuine interest in nursing older people who may need encouragement to meet their full potential in order to return to their own homes.

You will be a reliable team player, have excellent communication skills, a kind and compassionate manner and be willing to work flexibly. You will be required to work on an internal rotation, which will include days and nights over seven days.
