Vacancy Description

An organisation of 2,800 staff, Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust is one of the leading mental health trusts in the country. We are a multi-specialty health and social care provider of integrated health care services across Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire, Whitby, Scarborough, and Ryedale, serving a population of 765,000 people of all ages.  We provide community and therapy services, primary care, community and inpatient mental health services, learning disability services, healthy lifestyle support and addictions services. We also provide specialist services for children including physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and support for children and their families who are experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties.  The Trust also runs Whitby Hospital, a community hospital providing inpatient, outpatient and community services to Whitby and the surrounding area, and nine GP practices – two in Hull and seven in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

This is an exciting time to consider joining our Trust.  We have retained our ‘Good’ rating with the Care Quality Commission and in 2019 we were awarded the Mental Health Provider of the Year at the Health Service Journal Awards.  Our core values are ‘caring, learning and growing’, and our vision is to be a leading provider of integrated health services, recognised for the care, compassion and commitment of our staff and known as a great employer and a valued partner.

Person Specification

  • Are from a BAME background
  • Have experience of gender and women’s issues
  • Are a younger person
  • Are open about their faith,
  • Have an understanding of or have experienced social deprivation and used this to influence positively
  • Live with a disability
