We are recruiting for a part-time Healthcare Assistant to join our busy Exeter clinic.

You will work under the supervision of qualified nursing staff and will assist in the care of patients within the department, carrying out general duties to enable the effective running of clinics.

This will involve a range of clinical and non-clinical tasks such as: chaperoning patients, ordering clinical supplies and filing results.

Previous experience of working in sexual health or health related field is desirable but not essential as training will be given.

Our clinic is based in the centre of Exeter and, as a result, can be busy at times so we would require flexibility to work within the needs of the service.

This is a 12 month fixed term post with a working pattern of three days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
