Introduction
If you care for others without a second thought and are looking for a rewarding career where you can make a difference and changes lives for the better, then a Senior Healthcare Assistant and Health and Safety Champion at the modern purpose-built service, Pinhoe View could be the right choice for you.

With previous experience working in healthcare through the NHS or private sector, you'll receive training to join the team where you will be valued and supported, with career development opportunities available.

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 the team that works well together to provide care for people with acute mental health conditions. Whether you have been a Support Worker or a Care Worker, you will utilise your experience to support people to lead a valued and fulfilled life.

As a Senior Healthcare Assistant, you'll support the ward manager in weekly environmental checks and monthly health and safety audits, as well as supporting staff on fire marshal training.
