If you care for others without a second thought and are looking for a rewarding career where you can make a difference and changes lives for the better and enjoy a £1000 welcome bonus, then a Senior Healthcare Assistant and Physical Health Champion at the modern purpose-built service, Pinhoe View could be the right choice for you.
With previous experience working in healthcare through the NHS or private sector, you’ll receive training to join the team where you will be valued and supported, with career development opportunities available, including venepuncture and ECG training.
It’s a career that you can take pride in while enjoying the satisfaction of helping people and seeing them improve. It’s what delivering great healthcare should feel like.
What you will be doing
You will join the team that works well together to provide care for people with acute mental health conditions. Whether you have been a Support Worker or a Care Worker, you will utilise your experience to support people to lead a valued and fulfilled life.
As a Senior Healthcare Assistant, you'll support the Practice Nurse for one shift a week as the Physical Health Champion within your extended capacity.
This will see you request GP summaries, arranging appointments, deliver training sessions, recording service user’s height and weight during admission, ECG, Bloods and PCR testing.
You'll have two years of experience within a similar setting and an understanding of violence and aggression in a healthcare or social care environment.
Your Physical Health Campion responsibilities will run alongside your day-to-day duties as a Healthcare Assistant. This doesn’t mean you will have the workload of two people, but rather that you’ll put on different hats as you support adults with mental health and the wider service.
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.
The Elysium Wellbeing team 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?
With a huge range of courses that will see you grow and succeed. If you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, we can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.
