Job overview

Thank you for expressing an interest in helping Homerton and the NHS at this extremely challenging time. 

We have many wards and departments that need additional support to manage the increased number of patients, and your offer of help is very much welcomed.  You will be fully supported on your arrival here at Homerton, and we will arrange an induction to help you settle in.

Main duties of the job

In order to help us do so, please follow the instructions below to register with Trac (if you haven’t previously) and complete the short application form.

To understand your area of interest/expertise please can you be really clear in your application what skills and experience you have and what type of work and roles you are willing to do, particularly in the Supporting Information section.  

We will be in touch once we have had a chance to assess your application and are able to match you to a role. 


Once you have done this we will contact you to ask you to complete some paperwork and ask you send us copies of your ID so that we can register you on our system. We are really keen to get you set up as a volunteer as quickly and efficiently as possible. 


Once again, thank you for your offer of support.  We are looking forward to welcoming you to Homerton.
