The Trust which runs the county’s two acute hospitals is looking for new team members to help keep its patients safe with the launch of a recruitment drive for 20 Cleanliness Technicians.

Cleaning colleagues are a key part of the frontline workforce at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust (SaTH) and are instrumental in ensuring that the hospitals are kept clean and functioning.

SaTH is now looking to take on 20 Cleanliness Technicians at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. If you think it is the job for you or you would like to find out more pop along to the Trust’s open day at the Arthur Rowley Lounge, Shrewsbury Town FC, Shrewsbury, on Friday 26 November between 10am and 3pm. You will have the opportunity to meet members of the team, find out further information regarding the role and ask any questions you may have.

Rhia Boyode, Director of People and OD, said: “Our Cleanliness Technician team plays a pivotal role at our hospitals. Throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic they have gone above and beyond in helping to ensure that our hospitals are as clean as possible to reduce the risk for patients and staff.

“We pride ourselves on supporting each other and other teams within the Trust. As a Cleanliness Technician you could be working as part of a frontline team and engaging with our Infection Prevention team, across wards and departments. We also offer flexible shift patterns to ensure job satisfaction and a good work-life balance.”

This year the Cleanliness Technician team was awarded SaTH’s Chief Executive Award for Team of the Year as it was recognised that the hospital would not be able to function without them.

Alongside this week’s event you can also apply for the Cleanliness Technicians roles on the SaTH website www.jobs.sath.nhs.uk
