Want to make a difference to Local Lives?

Do you have previous experience working as a Housekeeper and want to make a difference to local lives? We have an opportunity to join our friendly and supportive Facilities team as a bank member of staff.

We are an independent local charity based in Bosham, Chichester offering a wide range of services to support our patients, and their loved ones, who are living with a life limiting or terminal illness.

The work we do makes a real difference to the lives of local people and we support over 330 patients at any one time between our In Patient Unit and Community teams.

Being a Bank Housekeeper at St Wilfrid’s

Members of our Housekeeping team are an integral part of the Hospice, delivering and maintaining high standards of cleanliness to support our patients, visitors and staff.

Housekeeping duties in clinical areas involve providing services and preparing ward rooms to welcome a new patient and their family. Duties in non-clinical areas include ensuring offices are left clean and tidy.

The working environment is exceptional in our fantastic purpose-built Hospice.

The successful candidate will ideally have previous housekeeping experience, enjoy working as part of a team, and provide a rewarding service.

Qualifications and Experience
