Refugee SWAP (Sector-based Work Academy Programme)

Wider Learning Opportunity

We are planning for our next Sector-based Work Academy Programme, with a focus on refugees. The SWAP sees jobseekers partake in a 4 week programme including work placements, college training, employability support etc, to gain a job within STH as a Patient Services Assistant (Domestics). This is a great role to give someone experience of working in healthcare and build up confidence working in a new country. We are flexible with requirements hence offering the work placement and focusing more on values-based assessment methods. There are limited spaces but if you believe you have a refugee customer(s) who would be suitable please complete the referral form. We’re predicting May/June for the programme to take place but there will be lots of prep before then including meeting candidates and clearing them for their placement etc. Patient Services Assistant Job Description
