There has never been a better time to join our Trust than now! We run three busy hospital sites at Peterborough, Huntingdon and Stamford and provide outpatient services in two community hospitals in Ely and Doddington. Our 6,000 staff serve a growing population of 750,000 across North Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full / part-time housekeeper to work within our emergency department at Peterborough City Hospital. Our team need someone who is organised, self-motivated and enthusiastic to join us to support the delivery of safe and effective care. You will need to be passionate about working within a team, and have a dynamic and forward thinking approach to service improvement.
An emergency department housekeeper’s role is to support the clinical staff by maintaining and restocking all areas of the department, encompassing ordering stock, stock rotation and liaising with the materials management team. You will also be expected to maintain high standards of organisation in the department by ensuring the department is kept tidy, clinical equipment is maintained and cleanliness levels achieved by liaising with our domestic staff.
The successful applicant will have a can-do attitude and be willing to adapt their working style quickly and effectively to ensure the department runs smoothly. Previous experience in a housekeeper role would be desirable.
You will be expected to work regular 8.5hour shifts 7days per week, including bank holidays.
Are you self-motivated, dynamic and have great organisational skills? If so, we look forward to receiving your application.
