COVID-19 Vacancy CAU Medical Secretary

Band 4

Would you like to join teams who are committed to providing a high quality service for patients within our General Surgery? Are you enthusiastic, flexible and well-motivated?

We are looking for a Medical secretary to work 37.5 hours per week.

You will be working in a very busy department which generates a high volume of typing and administration. Applicants will require excellent interpersonal skills and able to deal with inquires in a polite and efficient manner.

However in return you will be part of a small and friendly team where everyone’s contribution is valued and you will be supported in your personal and professional development.

Ideally we are looking for someone with a minimum of 3 years secretarial experience and 1 year administration experience within the NHS but this is not essential as full training will be provided. 

We are passionate in supporting our staff to develop and have great opportunities for career progression. We take equality and diversity seriously and seek to empower all diverse groups within our trust. We seek to develop a culture where diversity in all its forms is celebrated. We are committed to ensuring that women are empowered to work at all levels of management and that working patterns are as flexible as possible giving all members of staff opportunity to flourish in using their skills for our patients. We work across our trust to enable those who consider themselves to have a disability both visible and invisible to have access to all they need to thrive in their work environment. We work with Stonewall to embed an inclusive and accepting culture for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff. We have 78 nationalities working in our trust and we are proud of this. We are active in embracing the ethnic and cultural diversity in our trust. We work to empower people with any protected characteristic to have opportunities to work in an environment that helps them to contribute to the best of their ability, recognising and valuing the unique contributions each of us brings for best quality care and service to our patients. We are committed to supporting the delivery of the Equality Act with zero tolerance for any discrimination, harassment or victimisation of applicants and staff with these protected characteristics

Closing Date: Wednesday 30th September 2020

Interview Date:  9th October 2020  - Please note a typing test will be undertaken as part of the interview process

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
