Ready for the recognition and rewards you deserve? Be Brilliant with RCHT. We are looking to increase our team of Healthcare Support Workers by 20.

A Healthcare Support Worker is no ordinary job and it is not for an ordinary person. We need caring, supportive people who love helping others and can come to work with a positive attitude and a friendly smile. It that sounds like you, then we guarantee you will leave at the end of each shift feeling proud of the work you have done to support patients to feel and be at their best.

You will be trained to complete your Care Certificate which gives you all the skills you need to be a success (aside from your brilliant personality and helpful nature!). But it doesn't stop there - if you want to progress in your career we can even offer you the opportunity to specialise with specialist skills or take our fantastic apprenticeship to become a nurse. No university fees, no student debts - you can earn whilst you learn! What are you waiting for?

With strong team working skills, you will be able to demonstrate the values that are important to us, communicating well with both colleagues and patients. We are open to your ideas for how to improve the services we offer; without compromising on quality and always treating patients and team-mates with respect and dignity.

Our Healthcare Support Workers are key members of the team. Without you we would not be able to give the quality care we do - to thank you for your dedication and hard work, we promise you:
  • A rewarding job, where your care makes a daily difference to our patients
  • Supportive on the job training and induction, including the opportunity to build on your healthcare career with an opportunity to access a nurse career pathway
  • Guaranteed monthly income
