Band 3 Senior Healthcare Assistant
Full time 37.5 hours
The Christie NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of 3.2 million across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, and treats more than 44,000 patients a year. At The Christie, research is integral to our business with roughly 20% of patients taking part in clinical trials. The Christie currently has over 550 active clinical trials, with a high proportion being early phase and first in human trials.
We are seeking to recruit a full time Band 3 Senior Healthcare Assistants for the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Facility (CRF) at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. The CRF incorporates accommodation for inpatients and day-case patients taking part in clinical research, as well as an outpatient clinic area. You will be required to work flexibly, including weekend working and night duty. Previous experience of working in a healthcare setting would be an advantage; as the CRF is a fast paced environment that works to implement changes to standard treatments, resulting in improved outcomes for patients.
We can offer you professional development through the Christie School of Oncology, which offers a number of courses including the Christie Care Certificate, which is part of a national initiative to develop the skills of healthcare staff. You will be allocated a named mentor to support you in completing the course.
We are looking to recruit Senior Health Care Assistants who are keen to build on their existing healthcare experience, whilst developing the skills required to work as part of the clinical research team.
