The Alliance has Community Hospitals across Leicestershire, with the desire to provide an excellent standard of patient centred care.

In addition to having effective interpersonal skills, you will be adept at both working as part of a team and able to act on your own initiative. You will also be an effective communicator with excellent organisational skills. The role involves booking outpatient clinic appointments, blood test appointments and other reception/administration duties as required.

You will become part of a talented, passionate team of people, and will enjoy one of the most competitive and flexible benefits packages offered by any employer in the UK. On top of your basic salary, you will receive at least 27 days' holiday each year, plus a range of other benefits including occupational health and counselling services.

As a Admin Assistant it will be your responsibility to ensure that your behaviour and values reflect those of UHL and the Alliance.
