Job Description

The mission of our Trust is to help people reach their potential and live well in their communities. All our staff, whatever their role, have a part to play in helping us deliver this important mission. Every day, our staff are guided by our values:

  • Honest, open and transparent
  • Respectful
  • Person first and in the centre
  • Improve and be outstanding
  • Relevant today, ready for tomorrow
  • Families and carers matter

Our values are very important to us; we know that the attitude and behaviours of our staff can have a huge impact on quality of care we provide. That’s why, through our recruitment, we want to find people who show that their values match ours. We do this through:

  • A selection process that tests attitudes and behaviours as well as knowledge and skills
