Job Description

If you care for others without a second thought and are looking for a part-time rewarding career, where you can make a difference and change lives for the better, then a Part-Time Healthcare Assistant at Wellesley Hospital could be the right choice for you.

Whether you are looking for a new career or already work in healthcare through the NHS or private sector, join the Elysium team on a part-time basis and feel valued and supported, with a 2-week paid induction course and career development opportunities.

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 an inclusive, supportive team that works well together to provide high-quality care to females with mental health conditions and complex care needs.

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.

You will have access to the Elysium Wellbeing team, which 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 help you grow and succeed, if you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, Elysium Healthcare can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.
