What does Flexi-Bank mean?

Flexi= Flexibility Bank= Bank account/A bank of people

Flexi-Bank workers support departments across the hospital in case of sickness or holiday cover and provide additional support while we recruit permanent staff.

Being a part of the Flexi-Bank staff team at Benenden Hospital can offer you the perfect work/life balance by giving you the opportunity to work flexibly during the week.

Whilst we're unable to guarantee you regular hours, we do have the need to cover our regular staff members across all areas of the hospital during times when we experience increased demands or staff shortages.

Derek Johnson, Flexi-Bank Porter

I've had the pleasure of working at Benenden Hospital for almost four years. I started as a Bank Driver, before moving to the Portering department. What makes Benenden Hospital such a rewarding place to work is the genuine camaraderie that exists in our team. We work well together towards a common goal: providing the best possible care for our patients and ensuring their journeys are as comfortable as can be.
