Important Information about working for GMW:

This appointment will be subject to a satisfactory completion of a 6 month probationary period for new starters to the Trust. You will receive all necessary training and support during this period. Further details are contained within the Trust’s Performance Improvement Policy.

All positions within the Trust are subject to satisfactory pre-employment checks. This position is also subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check. If successful in your application the Trust will pay the initial cost of the DBS, currently £4769 and this will be reclaimed from your first salary payment (if in Band 3 or above) upon commencement, or your first two salary payments (if in Bands 1 or 2) upon commencement.

If you are appointed to the post, you will be required to provide evidence of a satisfactory DBS check on a 3 yearly basis.

To achieve this, the Trust recommends that you sign up for the DBS update service (£13 annual subscription fee currently) which is an automated process. You may choose to have a DBS carried out by the Trust of a three yearly basis instead, however, you will be required to pay for the cost of this check at the time (currently £4769)

GMW have made the Apprenticeship Promise and as part of that promise will consider all Band 1 to 4 vacancies as Apprenticeship Opportunities. Applicants are encouraged to apply for posts at Greater Manchester West who have direct experience of mental health, learning disability or drug and alcohol services either as a service user or a carer.

GMW requires all Band 2 Health Care applicants to achieve a Care Certificate if not already done so.

The Trust is also committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Disclosure and Barring Service Check

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.
