Following strict regulations, you will assist with preparing, cleaning and sterilising equipment, stock control, waste disposal, laundry and other site services, giving you a lot of variety and keeping you busy throughout the day.

This vacancy has arisen at their main site in Worthing, West Sussex. There are around 150 employees and the company has an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, staff morale and ongoing development.
