We are always looking to increase our bank with HCA’s that have experience of working in an acute hospital, but we also provide training for those who haven’t worked as an HCA before. This can be a great route to working with us on a permanent contract and develop your career in healthcare.

Experienced HCA’s

If you are an experienced HCA and hold either an NVQ2/ QCF in health/Care certificate we would be really interested in hearing from you. As you are already qualified and experienced, once you have successfully completed our interview process you will be able to start work as soon as your pre-employment checks are completed.

New to the acute hospital environment?

If you don’t have experience in an acute hospital setting or hold either an NVQ2/ QCF in health/Care certificate you would need to attend our recruitment/interview day where we evaluate your essential skills and transferable experience to evidence your ability to care for our patients. Once passed, you will complete our pre-employment check process.

When you are ready to start work you will attend our comprehensive two week (full time) paid HCA training programme which includes a combination of classroom and on the ward teaching, then you will be equipped to start working on the wards. During your first three months you will complete the care certificate which is an essential qualification for healthcare workers.
