As a healthcare support worker at Royal Papworth Hospital, you'll be working at the UK's leading heart and lung hospital. 

Under the supervision of a healthcare professional, you will play a key role in supporting our patients oin their treatment and recovery for heart and/or lung disease.

It’s a hands-on role – one minute you could be taking bloods and the next lending an ear to an anxious patient. But it’s one of the most rewarding.

No previous healthcare experience is necessary and the opportunities to progress are endless.

Interview on the day 

Come along to our healthcare support worker recruitment day on Saturday 18 June and you could walk away with a job offer.

You will be able to find out more about the healthcare support worker (Band 2) positions we have available and have an opportunity to speak with a variety of people who work here, from a range of job roles and responsibilities. They will happily provide you with information and answer any questions you may have.

If you like what you hear and decide you would like to join our team, you will be placed with one of our nursing recruitment team members, who are here to support and help you complete an application.

Our friendly and approachable team will guide you through the whole process. We even have a passionate healthcare support worker ambassador with us on the day who would be happy to speak with you.

Once you have completed a short test, you will be supported and given guidance ahead of a relaxed interview stage. That’s right - application through to interview all on the same day! You will have the potential to walk out with a job offer, all within a couple of hours.

At Royal Papworth, we value compassion, excellence and collaboration. You can be sure that you will have the support you need, the ability to work for a Care Quality Commission rated ‘outstanding’ hospital and will be given the tools needed to develop and grow your career.
