Further details of these benefits and other important information about the application process and working for us is contained in the documents linked to the right of our advert. Staff on other types of contract can access some of the above- please check you understand what is available in the role you are applying to.

To make the most of your application, we may on occasion consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic (BME) communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. The Trust will meet the initial cost, and it will then be deducted from the individual’s salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS community, and meet the essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
