Want to be part of the new NHS? Health and Care organisations in Dorset are at the forefront of transforming services to provide excellent, patient-centred care.

Dorset HealthCare recently achieved an Outstanding CQC status and is a dynamic forward-thinking Trust operating throughout Dorset. 

Dorset HealthCare plays a pivotal role in the strong partnership of public sector organisations across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. Our community and mental health trust has a caring and committed workforce of around 5,500 staff, serving a population of over 700,000 people.

We are looking for proactive, positive, respectful, supportive, reliable and trustworthy people to join us at Dorset HealthCare – we’re the biggest provider of healthcare in Dorset and offer exciting opportunities for people with a range of skills. We want to be better every day – do you?

‘This is an exciting time for us as we continue improving and adapting. I have seen some great innovation, fantastic teamwork and a real willingness to look at how we can do things differently’ – Eugine Yafele, Chief Executive (May 2019)





You will be required to work as part of the housekeeping team to maintain high standards of cleanliness in all areas of the hospital. 

The role will involve an early start, requiring someone with self-motivation and who is able to work cooperatively with others or independently as needed.  A flexible attitude is important to respond to different needs of the service.

Although experience of cleaning in a care environment is desirable and would be an advantage, this is not essential as training will be provided. 

There are opportunities for extra hours to cover holidays/sickness.  Bank Holiday work is paid at enhanced rates. 

This post is available 15 hours per week; 4pm— 7pm Monday to Friday.
