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.


Can you help us deliver our services during Covid-19?

We are looking for people with a “Can do Attitude” to come and join our bank portering team at Scunthorpe General Hospital who can work on positive Covid-19 areas. You will receive full training for the role of a porter and FIT training in the use of personal protective equipment.

The role of a porter can be demanding, and requires flexibility to support us during periods of operational pressures, so if you believe you have the physical agility to conduct patient, equipment and material moves around the hospital site, and can demonstrate our values, Kindness, Courage and Respect we would like to hear from you.

In order to be selected for an online interview you must provide the following information in your application:

Whilst the post is a Bank position (Zero hours contract) once you have completed your training and following a period of integration within the hospital environment you will have the opportunity to apply for any contracted posts within the department that may come available. Training would normally consist of working Monday to Friday, 7.5 hours per day, 37.5 hours per week, for a period of eight to ten weeks (dependent on the individual).

Once appointed you will access the many benefits of working for the NHS including an excellent pension 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.
