One job that might not come straight to mind when you think of jobs in a hospital is a Domestic Assistant. Within this job employees have to maintain a high standard of cleanliness within all areas of the hospital throughout departments.
Aaron Sutcliffe, Domestic Supervisor at Dr Grays has worked here for two and a half years. Aaron said,
“I really love my job as I love the idea of giving back to the health service by supporting the clinical team. Each role within the hospital is as equally important as another, however without the domestic team the hospital cannot be kept to the highest standard of cleanliness. It’s not just another cleaning job! We are responsible for preventing the spread of infection while making sure the patient’s safety comes first. I really enjoy spending time and speaking with patients as some don’t have family visiting during their time in hospital. I try to make their stay as homely as possible and less clinical. Many won’t see this job as a career, but this job offers room for progression.”
Maggie Graham, Domestic Assistant added,
“The job starts from us keeping everything pristine - I enjoy the job as team work makes the place!”
