ECCH’s COVID-19 response needs you!

Local Employers Secondment Programme

Local Employers – have you had to place your business on hold or has work decreased as a result of recent events?  Our health secondment programme could be a mutually beneficial solution.

East Coast Community Healthcare CIC is proud to be working with Keeler Recruitment and Birketts Solicitors offering a health secondment programme to local employers. The programme provides the opportunity for local employers to second suitable employees to East Coast Community Healthcare on a secondment arrangement rather than transfer your employees to the Job Retention Scheme (and class them as Furlough Workers). Full reimbursement of employment costs for any staff seconded comes directly from ECCH to you as the Employer, allowing you to retain staff and provide continuation of service. The secondment programme provides greater protection for Employers as, once the secondment ends, the staff member will return to their Employer giving much more control in terms of staff retention.

Do you have staff who could assist with care support for patients in the local community and/or assist with the care of patients recently discharged back into the community? We have opportunities in the Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth and Northern Villages, Beccles and Gorleston areas.

We are looking for people with transferrable skills to fulfil a variety of roles including care support (community and ward roles), hotel services operatives (porters, housekeeping, cleaning, catering) rehabilitation support workers.

Full training will be provided so relevant experience is not essential. 

We will supply all personal protective equipment (PPE) required for these roles according to Government guidelines.

This is a unique way to help your community at the same time as ensuring you retain the services of key staff members in these difficult times.
