No experience in healthcare? Do not worry; At Priory, we are immensely proud of the career pathway and training we provide and as long as you show the characteristics needed for a role in care, we will give you all the training and support you need to become a competent healthcare professional. You will also be working alongside qualified nurses and medical professionals to help guide you day-to-day.

Kneesworth House offers purpose built services with medium secure, low secure, and both locked and open rehabilitation opportunities.

Excellent Communication Skills – Communicating with patients and staff is vital to understand the needs of the patients and relay any information to the nurses and medical professionals.
Organisational Skills – You’ll need to be comfortable documenting information and be organised in your approach.
Care and Compassion – Our patients require the best care and compassion we can offer, if you are a naturally caring person, this is a role for you.
Attentive – No patient is the same and so being attentive to understand them and identify areas we can support is key.

Here is what we will give you:
• A competitive salary
• 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
• An extra annual leave day for your birthday! (we don’t think anyone should work on their birthday)
• Ongoing Training
• Access to Priory apprenticeships
