We are a manufacturer of specialist hospital beds and manage over 25% of the UK’s acute bed and mattress fleet, working with more than 150 hospitals across the UK and Ireland.

Working as part of a dedicated team, you will provide caregivers with the products and knowledge they need to deliver a high-quality service to patients.

Your Role:

As a Logistics Porter, you’ll be based full time in either Queens Medical Centre or Nottingham City Hospital in Nottingham. You will be part of a central logistics team, dedicated to moving and collecting Medstrom equipment around the hospital.

Full training given, no experience necessary. This role purely deals with the movement of equipment, focussed mainly on beds, mattresses, and accessories. The movement of patients does not form part of this role.

– Attend team briefs before and after shifts with the team

Hours of work: 37.5 per week, Tuesday to Saturday.

You will also be required to participate in an out-of-hours on-call rota (once trained) to support the team and the customer. This is subject to an on-call payment and additional payment for hours worked.

– Mechanical or electrical background desirable, but not essential as full training will be provided
– Experience working within a healthcare setting is desirable
– Full, valid UK driving licence required (we use long wheelbase vans, but training and support to build confidence in manoeuvring these vehicles will be provided where required)
– Knowledge of Medstrom and/or other medical device manufacturers’ products would be desirable, but not essential
