HCSW Open day – 3rd December 2022

Date: 3rd December 2022

Location: Reception Area, Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Tonbridge Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN2 4QJ

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a recruitment event for individuals who would like to join our friendly nursing teams as a Healthcare Support Worker. After we have showcased what MTW has to offer, we will invite attendees to join our assessment centre which will provide the opportunity to walk away with a job offer on the day.

No qualifications or experience in the healthcare sector? No problem. We will fully support you in your training and development. For us, it is more important that you have a caring and compassionate nature, the desire to help others and the drive to develop a rewarding career that you will be proud of. You will be joining a supportive, inclusive and diverse team who all reflect our Trust’s core values of PRIDE. Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust support flexible working patterns and many staff benefits to ensure that all staff have an excellent work-life balance.

We are looking for individuals who are looking to start out in their healthcare career, return to work after a break or change careers from another sector. Come along and talk to our experienced nursing team who will help you kick-start your career in healthcare.

Please note this recruitment event will not be recruiting Healthcare Support Workers for midwifery services.

Please arrive at 9am to take full advantage of the day. The day will consist of an informative presentation, the opportunity to find out about our specialities and to discuss career pathways with our experienced team. You will then be invited to proceed to our selection process including:

  • A group discussion
  • A basic literacy and numeracy assessment
  • A practical exercise of learning and demonstrating a basic skill

 Successful completion of the above assessments could mean that you leave the day with a job offer!

 Apprenticeship Opportunity

This role can also be offered as an apprenticeship. This will be achieved through successful completion of the Level 2 Healthcare Support Worker Apprenticeship, which includes the Care Certificate and functional skills (English and Maths Level 1). You will have direct supervision and support from Registered Nurses/Midwives and other members of the multidisciplinary team. If you are interested in applying for the apprenticeship route, please make this clear in your supporting statement so that we are able to shortlist your application accordingly.

What to bring with you to the event:

  • Evidence of right to work in the UK.
  • Two recent documents showing proof of address e.g. bank statement and council tax bill dated in the past three months (physical copies as opposed to digital copies).

What to wear:

Casual (come as you are, but please be presentable). Please wear a mask to the event unless you are exempt.
