I help to make a difference!
Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?
Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.
As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.
Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2018 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.
We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.
Looking for something a little different?
We're looking for Bank Pharmacy Technicians to support our multi-disciplinary healthcare team at HMP Wormwood Scrubs. This will mean working inside the prison within healthcare and on the prison wings. HMP Wormwood Scrubs is an adult male prison, 0.5 miles from East Acton station.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
A qualified Dispensing Technician NVQ level 3, BTEC or equivalent, with a real passion for utlising your pharmacy skills in an environment that is ever changing. Based on the prison wings, you will be an integrated member of the pharmacy team, working with the Primary Care or IDTS Nurses, leading or assisting with the administration of medications. Using your skills and knowledge, you’ll have a flexible approach, working within a team that encourage new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service. You'll be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!
Prison Healthcare experience is not essential.
If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Jen Davey, the Internal Recruiter for this role. The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Jen will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Wormwood Scrubs if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
The work is interesting and varied and is an opportunity to make a difference to peoples’ lives, enabling them to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing.
This is a bank role working shifts as and when required to cover holiday and sickness. The rate of pay is £16.22 per hour.
Please note that this role is subject to Care UK Terms & Conditions and offers of employment are subject to references, an enhanced DBS check and prison vetting.
