BANK Kitchen Porters / Commis Chefs
The Harborne Hospital, Birmingham
Part time, Bank

We’re looking for Bank Kitchen Porters / Commis Chef to join our team based in The Harborne Hospital. Part of the World’s largest private healthcare group; providing award winning primary, acute and complex care.

You will assist in the food preparation process, cook and prepare elements of high quality dishes, deal with various food preparation, assist the Chef, help with deliveries and restocking, stock rotation and cleaning.

We have reached an exciting stage in our recruitment journey where we are now looking for passionate Kitchen porters and Commis Chefs to join our Bank in readiness for The Harborne Hospital opening to patients in January 2024.

This is a chance to get great catering experience while enjoying the kind of benefits few commercial outlets are able to provide. But it’s also a chance to brighten up the day for people who really need it. Perhaps you’ll deliver the food, service and experience that can really help people on the road to recovery. Or provide much-needed fuel for our colleagues as they deliver exceptional care. Or offer a comforting meal to visitors when they’re at their most vulnerable. Whatever you do, your work will have a big impact.

Above all else, we’re committed to the care and improvement of human life. It’s this guiding vision that influences everything we do at HCA UK. From the CEO to the colleagues on the floor we all have a part to play in delivering exceptional care to our patients. Other’s may think this is just a role in Hotel Services, but to us, you’ll be part of a wider team with a unique sense of purpose, one that helps improve lives on a daily basis.

What you’ll bring:

  • Awareness of food and hygiene standards  

  • Relevant catering experience

  • Passionate about customer care

  • The ability to communicate effectively with patients, visitors and healthcare staff

  • The ability to work under pressure, and with a flexible approach


Originally founded over 50 years ago by Dr Thomas Frist, HCA has gone on to become one of the world’s leading healthcare providers. In the UK, we’re one of the largest providers of privately funded healthcare and have invested over £500 million in the latest treatments, technology, techniques, medication and facilities. Being part of a large multisite, established healthcare group we can offer you unrivalled opportunities for career progression through internal and external courses, as well as working conditions that prioritise both your mental and physical wellbeing. 

Diversity and Inclusion

Patients first. Colleagues always. That’s the guiding philosophy behind our approach to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging. We believe healthcare is built on a foundation of inclusion, compassion and respect for our patients and for each other. By working together with our colleagues we’re creating a truly inclusive environment, where individual differences are celebrated and everyone can achieve their potential.

We believe everyone should feel comfortable to bring their full self to work and be afforded the same opportunities. That’s why we’re happy to discuss flexible working arrangements to suit your needs as well as offer reasonable adjustments throughout our recruitment process, and in the workplace, to anyone that needs them.
