Our Bank - Support Services

Support services staff carry out a range of tasks in different parts of the NHS. Some keep people or equipment safe, while others transport patients and equipment around hospitals and other NHS sites.

Hospitals are big places, with different wards and departments and often multiple buildings and sites that without the provision of support services would be unable to deliver better patient care. 

We work in partnership with over 55 NHS trusts and have a range of opportunities across different areas such as estates, catering, security, sterile services and trades. Whether you’re looking to work part-time or full-time NHS Professionals can help you.

  • Porter
