Job Advert Role Description

Hazelwood House is a 12 bedded low secure unit for adults with Mental Health & Learning Disability . Hazelwood House also has a one bedded bespoke apartment.

There is no better time to get into healthcare than now!

Are you feeling uncertain about job security? Perhaps recent job hunting hasn’t landed the job you want due to a lack of industry experience. This is rewarding and satisfying work, you will become an important member of our team.

What if you could build a career in an industry that provides full training, requires no prior experience and leaves you with a genuine sense of achievement and reward knowing that you’ve made a huge positive impact on someone’s life?  

If that sounds like you, this could just be the job for you!

Priory Hazelwood are recruiting for Healthcare Assistants now! We are looking for enthusiastic, caring and passionate people to become an integral part of the healthcare team. In this role, you will be the first line of support for our patients and be responsible for providing compassionate care during your time with them. 

No experience in healthcare? Do not worry; At Priory, we are immensely proud of the career pathway and training we provide and as long as you show the characteristics needed for a role in care, we will give you all the training and support you need to become an experienced and competent healthcare professional. You will also be working alongside qualified nurses and other clinical professionals to help guide through your day-to-day work.  

Although we don’t require any prior healthcare experience, there are a few characteristics you will need to be successful in this role:

Resilience – This is a role working with vulnerable patients who can have varying degrees of mental health difficulties, so there will be days where your resilience is challenged, this is why it’s so important to have a team ethos in our hospital. 
Excellent Communication Skills – Communicating with patients and staff is vital to understand the needs of the patients and relay any information to the nurses and medical professionals.
Organisational Skills – You’ll need to be comfortable documenting information and be organised in your approach but we will train you to do this.
Care and Compassion – Our patients require the best care and compassion we can offer, if you are a naturally caring person, this is a role for you. 
Attentive – No patient is the same and so being attentive to understand them and identify areas we can support is key. 

Here is what we will give you:

  • A competitive salary
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • An extra annual leave day for your birthday! (we don’t think anyone should work on their birthday)
  • Ongoing Training 
  • Access to Priory apprenticeships 
  • Free Parking
  • Access to our spend and save benefits platform ‘Priory Perks’
  • Contributory pension
  • Supplemented Meals

**We pay more than NHS band 1&2 and remain competitive across all our pay bands**

The shift pattern is: 

Day 0735 to 2000
Night 1935 to 0800

Above all, we provide a supportive working environment where you can flourish in your career and feel incredibly rewarded by helping those who need it most.

If you want Healthcare to be a ‘job for life’ Priory will help you there. Full and part time hours available.
