Job Description

Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) is a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation. Our Trust is one of a new generation of community health service Trusts in the NHS. We are responsible for delivering a wide range of community health services across Hertfordshire. Our services are well established and we have built up a proud reputation for quality and excellence thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff. Our vision is to become a leading light in the provision of innovative programmes of care which maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Hertfordshire and other areas served by the Trust.

The Stevenage Integrated Community Team has an exciting opportunity for a full-time or part time Band 3 Healthcare Assistant to join us. The post holder must have excellent communication skills and demonstrate collaborative working.

We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Health Care Assistant to join our friendly, supportive team. You will be working alongside our trained nursing and therapy staff assisting them in the day to day care and management of our patients to ensure they receive safe, high quality nursing care.

The team comprises nurses, physiotherapists, OT's and community matrons, all working to provide evidence based nursing care to patients in their own homes. The service operates 8am - 10pm 365 days a year.

A full valid driving licence and access to a car to use regularly for business purposes is essential (unless you have a disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010).

We will communicate any interview arrangements with applicants via e-mail so it is advisable that you check the email address you give on your application on a regular basis.

All new appointments (excluding all Medical & Dental doctors) are subject to 6 months' probation period.

Staff recruited from outside the NHS will usually be appointed at the bottom of the pay band.

In submitting an application form, you authorise Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust to confirm any previous NHS service details via the Electronic Staff Record Inter Authority Transfer process should you be appointed to the post.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship (formerly a Work Permit)

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. Non-EEA applicants may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA applicant is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT). The UK Border Agency requires employers to complete this test for jobs which are not on the shortage occupation list to show that no suitably qualified EU or EEA worker can fill the post. As well as the RLMT, we have to meet other criteria such as salary thresholds and age restrictions before sponsorship can be sought. Please refer to https:// Apply/ for further information.
