Job Description

Dorset HealthCare is an Outstanding Trust to work for … and not merely because CQC awarded us that distinction!

In line with our Trust vision, ‘Better Everyday’, our services are run by highly motivated staff who go the extra mile to care for vulnerable people at their time of need and  work in partnership with our service users to empower them to live their lives meaningfully. Staff wellbeing is at the heart of all we do and we are leading on a comprehensive Wellbeing Hub for our Integrated Care System.

Utilising national and local opportunities, we maximise training and supervision to upskill ourselves in line with latest evidence. We are closely linked to the Universities of Bournemouth, Southampton and Exeter, provide placements for under-graduate, post-graduate and doctoral programmes and are piloting the newly rolled out CAPs scheme.

In addition to the usual benefits of NHS employment, Dorset Healthcare will offer you:

  • A generous relocation package of up to £5,000 to help you move to Dorset. For further details on relocation expenses please email
  • The opportunity for remote and flexible working to support your health and wellbeing

Having attracted funding through local service reviews and national development of posts in a number of services, we are delighted to share the opportunities we have with you.
