We are proud to achieve consistently high scores in our annual staff satisfaction survey. Our staff report high levels of motivation, satisfaction with their level of responsibility and the support they receive working in professional, multidisciplinary teams.

Here are some of the ways you will be supported as you progress in your career with us.

Management and supervision

You will have regular supervision during your 6 month probationary period to address any issues or concerns, followed by monthly supervision thereafter. Supervision is a dynamic two-way process and is based on a shared agenda to ensure that issues and needs are addressed and resolved.

Health and wellbeing
We have developed a suite of online wellbeing resources which you can use to create a personalised wellbeing plan to help you achieve healthy life goals relating to stress management, fitness and exercise, weight management and healthy eating.

Wellbeing hour

You can also take an hour out of your work each week to pursue an activity to improve your health, wellbeing or personal development.

Our staff say this hour has helped them relieve stress and feel more relaxed which contributes towards improved performance.

Mentoring for success
Whatever stage you are at in your career, you can benefit from our employee mentoring scheme. This provides one-to-one career development support to help you realise your potential and move forward in your career.

We are developing a specific mentoring programme for BAME staff and also a mentoring programme to support women’s leadership development.

Generally a mentoring relationship will last around three months, with one face-to-face meeting per month and additional phone and email support as agreed.
