Are you a keen motivated Healthcare Assistant interested in a new challenge?


Are you interested in supplementing our existing nursing workforce through bank work?


We are a community based clinical care facility who run 3 bedded services for children and young adults with learning disability and complex health needs, including epilepsy, tracheostomy and ventilation. Our services include The Residential School Nursing Team (operating within Chailey Heritage Foundation ), Finches Short Breaks (offering residential short break respite care), and our combined Rehabilitation and Transition Service (offering rehab following illness and short term transition either back into home or longterm placement for young people with complex needs)


We provide nursing care to children and young adults from the age of 3 to 25 years. The children and young adults have a range of complex health needs and physical learning and sensory disabilities. We are looking for people with nursing experience and skills to work in this highly complex area.


We are looking to recruit to our team of Bank Healthcare Assistants to support our existing teams.


This is an exciting opportunity to work in a community based setting, with a wide range of children and young people, enabling them to live fulfilling lives. If you are interested in bank work, we can offer you full training, and a fulfilling role.


Various shift patterns are available from covering school days (9-4) to 24/7 working. Term time only work is also available.


If you are passionate about making a difference and have an interest in caring for children and young people and want to contribute to an organisation that is continuously striving to improve then please apply!
