Mixing both onsite and offsite duties, this role will encompass several different tasks, including offering a high-quality patient transport service, transporting of medical samples, equipment and documents, as well as offering inhouse support including meeting and greeting of patients, postal duties, medical equipment replenishment, plus much more.

  • Due to insurance purposes, this role requires all applicants to be 25 years or over.



In accordance with Home Office guidance successful candidates will be required to evidence their right to work in the UK before commencement of employment. We have assessed this role and do not consider that we would be able to sponsor a successful candidate under the Skilled Worker route as the role does not meet the relevant Home Office criteria; the successful candidate therefore must be able to demonstrate their own right to work during the recruitment process without Horder Healthcare sponsorship.

At Horder Healthcare, we are proud to champion and celebrate diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in all areas of our business. We are committed to creating an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants without regard to protected characteristics by applicable law.

As a disability confident employer, we are pleased to offer our full support should you require an alternative method of applying or any reasonable adjustments to be made during the recruitment process.

In order to streamline our recruitment process, we reserve the right to expire vacancies prior to the advertised closing date once we have received a sufficient number of applications.

Due to the nature of work here at Horder Healthcare, and to ensure that we remain committed to our Safeguarding policy, all successful applicants will be subject to pre-employment checks, including an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS check). References and Occupational Health checks will also be taken up before appointment.
