We are proud to provide high quality mental health, learning disability and community services across six boroughs of Greater Manchester - Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Glossop and Trafford.
Our 5,500 staff work tirelessly to deliver the very best care and we receive excellent feedback from our patients. We’re really proud of our #PennineCarePeople and do everything we can to make sure we’re a great place to work.
Pennine Care’s ambition is to work together to promote an all-inclusive environment which attracts all candidates and signals our ongoing commitment to both celebrate and promote diversity.
As a Disability Confident Employer we offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants who meet the minimum selection criteria at each stage of the selection process.
We are committed to improving the working lives of our employees, developing the Trust as a Great Place to Work. Some benefits we offer:
27 days annual leave rising to 29 (after 5 years) and 33 (after 10 years) plus bank holidays pro rata
A dedicated Staff Wellbeing Service
A number of NHS discounts across retail, leisure and travel
Staff Discount with Stagecoach and First Buses
We are developing our future strategy, which will focus on providing the highest quality mental health and learning disability services.
As part of this, our community (physical health) services in Bury, Oldham, Rochadale (adult services) and Trafford will be moving to a new NHS Provider in 2019. For Bury, Oldham, Rochdale (adult services) this will take place on 1 July 2019.
We have been very proud to run community (physical health) services over the last seven years, but we believe there are other provider organisations better positioned to enable these community services to achieve more for the benefit of local people. We are working closely with our staff and colleagues in the new provider organisations to ensure the smoothest possible transfer.
Interviews are taking place on 27 September 2019
