Whether you are just starting out in your career or are looking to use your skills and experience in a new role, East Cheshire NHS Trust is the right employer for you. An organisation with a real sense of community we actively support and develop our staff to ensure our patients receive the best quality care. Join our team and support our vision of delivering the right care first time, every time.


The ward housekeeper is integral to the functioning of a clean, tidy and well-stocked ward. The housekeeper will ensure that the ward is stocked to enable clinical staff to work with everything they need whilst being mindful of the budget. The housekeeper will work closely with the Senior Sister and Matron to maintain high standards of cleanliness on the ward and liaise with the ward cleaning staff.

Some audit work will need to be undertaken periodically and the housekeeper will also work with clinical staff to maintain and improve  standards.

This is an exciting  opportunity for a part-time housekeeper to organise and influence how the ward works. The orthopaedic ward is currently having alterations made to change to two wards on the existing footprint and the successful candidate will be able to create their own way of working on these two areas.  There is also the option to make the role up to full-time hours by working on both Ward 10 and Ward 5.

Please contact the Senior Sister for more details.
