Vacancy - Trainee Administrator – Part-time

We have a part-time vacancy for 12hrs a week, available mid-June to the end of August.
2.30pm to 6.30pm Tuesdays and Fridays, and one other day to suit both parties.
There may also be the opportunity for additional hours over the Summer.

You will also learn about the more in-depth Patient Services work with patient records and patient interactions. You will get to learn about the operational administration which includes communications and marketing, rota planning, finance, HR, H&S and facilities. There will be online training courses to complete as well. The role is designed to help alleviate some of our end of day pressures whilst offering opportunities to the right candidate to learn valuable administration skills and gain knowledge that can be transferred to future jobs. Although if the successful candidate works hard and shows commitment, reliability and an aptitude for the work then we may be able to continue the role but on reduced hours from September.

You will also need to be sensitive and mature when dealing with any paperwork or interactions relating to a patient’s health and wellbeing. An interest in a future career in health or social care would be beneficial to make the job more interesting for you, whether that’s within medical administration, nursing, social prescribing or as a GP. A friendly, positive and enthusiastic approach will help you within the team and good communication skills.

The pay is dependent upon age:
