An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit to a number of Band 3 Generic Health Care Support Worker posts to join the new multi-disciplinary Home First Team based in Wrexham.

The hours of work are variable, covering from 8am to 10pm and will include weekend working and Bank Holidays. The geographical area of cover is across the County of Wrexham and Flintshire to support service need.

We are looking for candidates with a strong work ethic to provide an excellent standard of care with the right values for this role. Full induction into the post will be supported and there are great opportunities for career advancement and the opportunity to develop additional skills such as venepuncture and recording of patient clinical observations following training and competencies.
