I help to make a difference!
Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?
Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.
As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.
Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2018 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.
We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.
Looking for something different?
We're looking for a Healthcare Liaison Co-ordinator to support our multi-disciplinary healthcare team at HMP Huntercombe. This will mean working inside the prison within healthcare and on the prison wings. HMP Huntercombe is a Category C adult Male establishment holding a solely foreign national population in order to support government priorities on the deportation of foreign national offenders.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
NVQ 2 Qualification and evidence of willingness to undertake training and development.
Ideally you will have portering experience and knowledge of COSHH regulations, Infection Control.
You will have experience of working in a healthcare or custodial setting.
In the role you will come across poor behaviour which you will challenge and role modelling good behaviour as a consequence.
There will be travelling involved with the role so a clean driving licence and the ability to travel between locations would be ideal.
If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Silvie Baister, the Internal Recruiter for this role. The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Silvie will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Huntercombe if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
The work is interesting and varied and is an opportunity to make a difference to peoples’ lives, enabling them to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing.
This is a permanent role with the hours being 37.5 per week. The salary will be between £16,000- £18,500 dependent on experience.
