Clinical Support Worker (CSW) Academy

Support Worker Academy logoThe OUH has its own academy to promote the education and development of nursing assistants / clinical support workers, and we hold regular open evenings so people can find out more about current vacancies and the training offered to staff working for us.

If you're looking for a new opportunity, this is the perfect environment in which to gain a foothold in a new career. You will need to be motivated to provide the highest standards of care and to treat our patients with dignity, compassion and respect.

Vacancies

There are a number of vacancies across the Trust, and several wards and departments regularly advertise for, and recruit, new nursing assistants / support workers to support patients who:

  • are elderly
  • have cancer
  • have specialist medical conditions
  • require surgery
  • require emergency medical treatment or ongoing support as an outpatient.

As a nursing assistant / support worker you may be supporting patients with personal care, such as assisting them to the toilet, with bathing and at mealtimes. In some departments, following specific training, you may also take on additional clinical roles.

Nursing assistants / support workers do work shifts and these could include several different patterns, including early, late, night or 12 hour shifts throughout the week, at weekends and on Bank Holidays.

There will still be opportunities open to you if you can only work fixed hours or days, but there are some wards and departments where this may be difficult as flexible working is part of the job. Working hours would be something to discuss with individual departments during the application process.

If you're looking for a new opportunity, this is the perfect environment in which to gain a foothold in a new career. You will need to be motivated to provide the highest standards of care and to treat our patients with dignity, compassion and respect.

At OUH our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community.

We call this delivering compassionate excellence, and its focus is respect, dignity, trust and learning. These values put patients at the heart of what we do, and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family.
