Whether you are an experienced Healthcare Assistant or are looking to start a new career caring for others (training provided), come and join the new ward opening at Thornford Park hospital and be part of a new team coming together to establish the new service.
It's a great time to join and help shape this new service as part of a new multidisciplinary team as you change lives for the better, as you work on shift patterns that include working nights and weekends, 12.5 hours a day, 3 shifts per week.
The new 14-bed ward will join the existing 129 beds that provide Forensic Mental Health rehabilitation, PICU and ASD services, which are set in 21 acres of Berkshire countryside.
It can be quite a challenging environment at times, so a positive attitude, compassion, resilience and vigilance are important. But it is hugely rewarding to see people improve; being able to do something today that they couldn't do last week because of you.
You will have access to the Elysium Wellbeing team, which is on hand to keep you feeling great; be it a chat, massage or group activities. Who doesn't like a free massage at work?
