We are recruiting Healthcare Assistants to our new Intermediate Care Unit in Hove. Would you like to part of this exciting new initiative? No previous healthcare experience is required, as we will train and support you, helping to boost your skills and confidence.

Our new unit in Lindridge will provide nursing and therapy care to patients who have either had a stay in an acute hospital or may have been unwell at home and need a bit of help to avoid an admission to a big hospital. We aim to get people back on their feet so they can return to their homes by ensuring their environment is safe and their abilities are optimised.

Here at SCFT we are proud of the care we offer to all our patients. Our Trust inpatient units' care was rated 'Outstanding' in our most recent CQC inspection.

As this is a 24 hour service, internal rotation will be operating. Both full and part time hours will be considered.

What can we offer you apart from a great feeling of job satisfaction?
  • Flexible working patterns
  • Supportive learning environment
  • Dedicated career pathways and great opportunities for continuing professional development
  • Commitment to and support for your health and wellbeing
  • NHS Pension Scheme
  • NHS discounts and salary sacrifice schemes
