We don't just talk about putting employees first. We know that Priory wouldn't exist without their combined energy, expertise and effort. So we invest heavily in training, provide first-class support, promote collaborative teamwork and give everyone on our team the opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.
The Cloisters is a 24 bedded open rehabilitation unit, set within a peaceful environment on the edge of Newbury. The unit offers in-patient rehabilitation services to service users who require longer hospital stays than provided in an acute ward, to develop independent living skills prior to moving into community based accommodation.
We are currently looking to recruit Healthcare Assistants to work 37.5 hours per week, including days, nights, weekends and bank holidays.
We are looking to recruit personable, flexible and motivated individuals to assist our qualified staff with the delivery of care to our patients.

You will be caring and attentive with the skills to build strong and trusting relationships with people. It is also important that you work well in a team as you will work alongside qualified nurses and staff from other professions.
You will need to have experience in a caring role but not necessarily in the mental health as full training will be given.
