Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust is looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and friendly team members to join their Estates and Facilities team across the three sites – Basildon, Broomfield and Southend. Join the team at their three recruitment events this September.

We are encouraging anyone who is looking for a new role that offers flexibility, job satisfaction and progression to apply to join them on the following dates:

  • Saturday 10 September – Basildon Hospital
  • Saturday 17 September – Southend Hospital
  • Saturday 24 September – Broomfield Hospital


The Facilities team are looking for domestic cleaners, catering assistants, porters and security officers to join their teams.  Successful candidates will help to deliver an excellent service across the hospital sites and ensure that all who are cared for, visit and work for the Trust have a good experience every day.

Amy Churchill, Senior Recruitment Advisor, said “We are really looking forward to welcoming candidates to our events and are hoping to offer roles to as many applicants as possible on the day. These events will give people the opportunity to find out more about the role that interests them in Estates and Facilities and show how we have the tools to support people in driving their career forward.”

Anyone interested should go to the Trust’s website (  and apply for the role and site they wish to be considered for; they will then be booked into a timeslot.

On the day, attendees will get a chance to learn more about the role that interests them in the education zone before heading into the recruitment zone where they will be interviewed and then talked through the next steps they need to take if they’ve been successful.

They will also learn how a role with Estates and Facilities can be more than just a job, it can lead to a fulfilling career full of interesting opportunities, which Southend Hospital’s Portering Manager, Brad Watson, is particularly passionate about.

He said ‘I have worked as part of the Trust for just over ten years and within that time have had the opportunity to hold a variety of roles within the Facilities directorate as I worked my way up into my current role as Portering Manager.

“I began working at Southend Hospital in 2009 as a Domestic Services Assistant and since then have held a variety of roles from Domestic Supervisor, Deputy Manager, Domestic Manager, Waste and Grounds Manager and now Portering Manager.

“What I love about MSE is the ability to learn new things and develop yourself to achieving things you may not have had planned.”
