NEW BUSINESS - NEW SERVICES - NEW JOBS IN LINCOLNSHIRE!!

Lincolnshire is leading the way with mental health transformation projects

Do you want to be part of changing mental health for the future? Improving things for the next generation and influencing the future. We have a number of exciting new opportunities for clinical and non-clinical staff.

Excellent, well trained and motivated staff are what make the Trust as successful as we are.

We employ over 2200 staff in a variety of roles and are proud that in the past two years we have been rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England; achieving the second best mental health trust nationally in 2018 staff survey. We firmly believe that the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce and this is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as 'outstanding' for well led and 'good' overall.

As a Trust we believe that having a diverse workforce and allowing people to be themselves is essential to good employment, we are openly supportive and encourage difference. We have three active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+) and staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE). This has resulted in annual staff conferences and some great national accolades, such as, the Trust being included in the Top 100 organisations in the country within the Stonewall Index.
