Job description and person specification

Job Description:

We are currently recruiting to Healthcare Assistants to join our internal staff bank, working within DPT teams across the county, including North Devon, Torbay, Teignbridge, West Devon, Exeter with East and Mid Devon. Bank working includes inpatient and community services. You will be expected to support the multi-disciplinary teams in providing high quality mental health care to people who are acutely unwell.

We are looking for people who have experience of working in a care setting, preferably in mental health, although this isn't essential. You must be able to demonstrate that you can work with compassion and empathy.

We provide an extensive induction programme which includes training and support in practice to achieve the Care Certificate within the first 3 months of joining us. The Care Certificate has been designed to ensure that our Healthcare Assistants / Support Workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support. The Care Certificate consists of a number of study days, completion of workbooks and competency assessment in the workplace across a range of standards. You will find out more on your first day of induction.

This role will be on wards that operates on a 24/7 shift basis and therefore enables staff to qualify for unsocial enhancements in addition to their basic pay.
