Become a Homerton Helper.
Step 1 application
If you’re 18 and over and can commit to at least 3 hours a week for six months and are interested in applying to be a Homerton Helper you can apply via our recruitment system, TRAC: Current vacancies | Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Step 2 attend an informal interview
If your interests and availability fit our volunteer roles you will be invited for an informal telephone or face to face interview. This will be a chance to chat through in more detail what volunteering will involve and to answer any queries you have.
Step 3 references and DBS clearance
If you’re provisionally offered a volunteer placement, we will ask you to submit a health assessment form and we will follow up with at least one reference.
You will be asked to bring along a number of documents to enable us to apply for clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) on your behalf.
A final decision about your placement will depend on your reference/s, a completed Trust Declaration Form and DBS clearance.
Step 4 Induction
Once all pre employment checks have been completed you will be invited to attend the Trust induction.
Step 5 your first day!
The Volunteer Office will ask you to sign a volunteer agreement and you will be given a Homerton Helpers t-shirt and ID badge. You will also receive a local induction from the ward or department in which you will be volunteering.
