An exciting opportunity has become available to join the team on the Acute Medical Unit at Maidstone Hospital for a band 3 ward co-ordinator. We welcome applicants that are motivated and dedicated to providing high standards of patient care.

The Acute Medical Unit is a 22 bedded AMU admitting patients referred by their GP’s and the Emergency Department. Here patients are assessed with rapid access to the diagnostic services and plans of care quickly developed. Patients remain within the unit for a maximum of 48 hours and are admitted into specialty wards or discharged home. We maintain very close working relationships with all members of the multi-disciplinary team. The unit also has a well-established treatment suite for ambulatory care.

This is a part time post, offering 19.5 hours per week and this will be based on an internal shift rotation (Mon – Sun, 08:00 -20:00). We welcome interested individuals to contact us to arrange an informal visit to the unit.

Please note that appointment to this post will be subject to a satisfactory Disclosure & Barring Service Check at enhanced level. (Enhanced level now includes regulated checks against vulnerable adults and children)

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
