Our people ambitions

Growing for the future

Growing for the future, particularly by building on the renewed interest in health and care careers to expand and develop our workforce while embracing new and emerging roles alongside our traditional roles.

Our commitments

We will:

  • deliver an effective workforce plan which focuses on recruitment and retention and future supply pathways and which incorporates Trust Learning Needs Analysis (LNA)
  • develop and deliver the best experience for those who join the Trust
  • develop and implement an innovative approach to talent development which aligns with the Trust Workforce Plan
  • work with partner organisations to deliver joint leadership and career development programmes
  • promote the One Leeds workforce model, removing barriers to cross-organisational and
    cross-functional working to enable new models of service delivery
  • work with partner organisations to collaborate on introducing and embedding new roles and the sharing of resources where this benefits the system we work in.
