Care Support Workers
Who can join?
If you’re a Care Support Worker or Health Care Assistant you can register with NHS Professionals for flexible work opportunities suited to your skills and competency levels.

Our only stipulation is that you meet the minimum experience required by our client Trusts. This can be either three months or six months experience gained in the NHS, during the last two years. The number of months experience required, depends on which Trust/s you want to work at.
Become an NHSP:Bank member and gain access to additional hours at 62 NHS Trusts
How do I become an NHSP:Bank member?
If you are not currently employed by one of our client Trusts, you can register to become a full NHSP:Bank member and gain access to additional hours at a large number of other NHS Trusts. You must complete a full bank membership, which you can start here today.
We then screen your application to ensure you meet the basic membership criteria and have the required minimum experience. We also match your skills and availability with the shift demand of our client Trusts – this helps to ensure there will be suitable shifts available to you when you’ve completed the process and are ready to work.

Registration follows a rigorous recruitment process that is fully compliant with NHS Employment Check Standards and can take a long time.

The length of time it will take depends on your availability to attend and complete the interview process, the time taken to receive your references and DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, previously Criminal record Bureau) form. We need your help in working with us to keep this duration to a minimum.
