In May 2019 the Trust became one of just five mental health and learning disabilities NHS trusts in England to be rated outstanding by the CQC.

We are seeking Mental Health Nurses and Social workers and OT’s to join us in providing outstanding care to our service users. In return we can offer you a rewarding career at one of the best mental health trusts in the country.

We want to attract the best and brightest people to work at HPFT and that means looking after you from the moment you apply for a role at the Trust and throughout your career with us. Our staff are our most valuable asset and we believe that investing in colleagues is crucial if we want to enable everyone to reach their full potential.

Here is a flavour of what we have to offer

As a University Trust we recognise the importance of supporting our workforce to deliver the right care in the most effective way. That means making sure staff can access outstanding learning and development opportunities whilst pursuing their careers within the Trust. This includes:

  • A structured leadership and management development programme

  • A structured leadership and management development programme

  • A ‘one-stop’ induction programme for all new staff – introducing you to the Trust, our values and our services

  • A coaching network where trained coaches throughout the Trust are matched with staff of all disciplines to provide a powerful development opportunity

  • A wide range of Continued Professional Develop (CPD) opportunities, working with partners – such as University of Hertfordshire, University of Bedfordshire, Anglia Ruskin University and University of Essex – to deliver training and development programmes and support

We are committed to helping staff to keep a work-life balance and so will welcome an application from you if you are seeking to work part-time or under flexible working arrangements.
Our Health Hub helps improve staff health and wellbeing across the Trust – encouraging staff to step away from their work and think about their own health. This includes:

  • Workshops, challenges and social events throughout the year

  • Confidential and safe forums where staff can talk about the emotional impact of their work

  • A equality and diversity staff network providing support to all staff

  • Mindfulness bite size taster sessions

  • Mini health checks

  • Free, confidential counselling services 24/7

  • Reduced gym rates at a number of local health clubs/gyms

  • PAM life: our online personal health management resource which allows staff to set goals, track progress and develop specific, tailored programmes

In addition to the generous pension and annual leave that comes with NHS employment, the trust offers addition benefits to our staff including a salary sacrifice scheme enabling staff to drive a brand new car or purchase a new bike as well as an HMRC scheme enabling savings on registered childcare costs

Please submit an application or simply turn up on the day and find out more about why it’s never been a better time to join us.  We can even interview you and offer you a job on the same day.
