People for Patients. Our People, our Patients, our Priority

The Maternity Unit at York Hospital is looking for an enthusiastic and well motivated individual to join the team as a Ward Clerk. You will be expected to provide a range of Ward Clerk duties, including clerical support and reception duties within the Maternity Unit. There will also be an expectation for you to provide clerical support across the wider Women’s Health department, when there is a requirement to do so.

You will need to be self-disciplined, motivated and be empathetic to all those you come into contact with. It is essential that you can prioritise your own workload, possess sound communication skills, work as part of a team, but also exercise initiative within set parameters.

We are looking for someone that adopts the Trusts principles of values, and can demonstrate where they use these values in their motivations and drivers - in particular, their compassion, willingness to put the welfare of others above their own interests and personal accountability. The post holder must also be computer literate.

The post requires Ward Clerk cover for all Maternity Wards 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will be working as part of a team working shifts of varying patterns throughout our rota. These will include nights, weekends and bank holidays.

Please be aware that this vacancy may close at short notice should a sufficient number of applications be received. We would therefore strongly advise you submit your application in good time of the closing date.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
