Careers at our hospitals
The National Health Service (NHS) is one of the biggest employers in Europe and employs more than one million people in a surprising variety of jobs. More than 60 different categories of professionals work at this Trust and we employ about 6,000 staff. Each and every member of staff plays a vital role in providing the healthcare needs of up to 750,000 people locally.
We strongly believe in flexible working and family-friendly policies that enable staff to have a rewarding work life, and a home life.
We also offer many different routes into NHS jobs and careers. Qualifications are important but you don't always have to have taken the academic route to develop a rewarding career in the NHS.
