We are looking for band 3 healthcare assistant to work with us on Ellis Ward at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea. Ellis Ward is a female surgical ward, however we also provide care to medical patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy and palliative care.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated healthcare assistant to join our team. The post requires flexibility to work a variety of shift patterns and the candidate must have an ability to deliver care to the highest standards.

The post we are offering is at band 3 level and therefore the candidate should have demonstrable experience in an acute ward setting.
