Band 2



Job overview

Why not join us as a Hospital Support Assistant (HSA) in our busy fast-paced hospital environment?

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.

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 training 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.

Main duties of the job

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 HSA.

Our HSAs are an integral part of the hospital's 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.

The right candidate would be working Monday to Friday with hours from 17:00 – 20:00 within our Domestic department.

Working for our organisation

We’re a large organisation with three hospitals located in Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole. We also provide community services in North Lincolnshire. Our 6,500 members of staff care for and support a population of more than 400,000 people.

We encourage all our staff to innovate and adopt ‘best practice’ so we can deliver excellent care to our patients. We ask staff to live our values; kindness, courage and respect.

We are committed to recruiting the best people to work with us. You could be one of them.
