    • There are no specific requirements. Like with similar jobs, I’m sure you’ll be expected to have good communication skills, and gentle care to be able to deal nicely with patients and their families. Character is an important aspect I’m sure, as you should probably be able to cope well with sickness and death, and also for sure you’d be expected to be able to react with calm but quickly when there’s an emergency.

I wouldn't think it's exactly the same as in shopping centres, when extra staff is needed, but definitely, for example at Christmas, people tend to take days off and somebody has to do the job. If the hospital is big or part of a corporation they may have enough staff to organise shifts, but in relatively small ones they may take on new staff temporarily. You can only try
