Why work for us?

We offer a huge range of benefits and the chance to make a genuine difference to the lives of people with mental health conditions or learning disabilities.

Our staff are our greatest asset – so it’s important we look after their health and well-being. In this short video we hear from colleagues who are making the Trust a rewarding and supportive place to work by looking after our staffs’ mental and physical health.
