Right now, we’re looking for dedicated, efficient but above all hugely caring Nursing Assistants to join our teams at Trafford Hospital, Davyhulme.

With a passion for helping others and an ability to demonstrate compassion and empathy in your approach to caring for our patients, your support and ‘hands on’ work will offer not only our patients a more positive and reassuring hospital stay, but you; great job satisfaction in knowing your dedication and commitment has made a real difference to both your ward but fundamentally the people you’re caring for. We have posts in a number of Ward areas.

At the heart of the ward, you’ll form a vital part of the team at the forefront of delivering direct care to our patients by communicating effectively and with compassion and assisting them with their personal needs and mobility, supporting with eating and drinking and recording observations. 

You will need to have:

  • An NVQ Level 2 in Health and Care
  • Excellent communication skills – in particular listening skills
  • A friendly, open, empathetic and compassionate communication style
  • A strong ability to engage with patients, visitors and colleagues
  • The ability to work well in a team

We are recruiting for various medical wards, theatre and critical care

In return for all your hard work we can offer you a great opportunity to care for a cross section of some of Greater Manchester’s most complex patients, supporting their various needs and developing your skills and experience in abundance. What’s more, you’ll make great friends with new colleagues and enjoy the buzz of team camaraderie and all that comes with that, a comprehensive Induction programme, full and part time career development training, a minimum of 27 days annual leave per year plus bank holidays (pro rata for part time staff), access to a range of employee benefits including childcare vouchers, discount rates at our on-site nursery, staff discounts and salary sacrifice schemes and the opportunity to join the NHS Pension Scheme. What could be better?

In essence, it’s not a job for the faint hearted but guarantees to offer you the chance of working in a fantastic team and leaving each day with the satisfaction in knowing you’ve done a great job in delivering an outstanding patient experience. We’re a forward-thinking, innovative and passionate organisation, committed to providing the best possible patient care but we need people like you to remain the best at what we do.
