Once the hospital is operational, you will support Housekeeping & Porter Manager and along the way, you'll build strong relationships with hospital senior leaders, a wide range of healthcare professionals and, of course, patients. Working collaboratively alongside the rest of the team, you'll ensure patients benefit from the best possible services, equipment and care.
You will be responsible build and supervising the porters' team, ideally, you will have a minimum of 3 years of supervisor experience. You will be responsible for managing patient transfers across the site and will need to be flexible, committed and hardworking.
