Opportunities with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Job Description

Do you want to use your skills and talents to make a difference to the lives of people living in your local community, why not consider a career in healthcare?

Sussex Partnership is a supporting member of Step into Health (SiTH), The Career Transition (CTP) Pathway and Forces Families Jobs (FFJ) all programmes which offers members of the armed forces community an access route into a new career with the NHS. We recognise that reservists and veterans bring a variety of transferable skills and qualities to our workplace, developed through their military careers. Sussex Partnership also values the contribution of Forces Families can make and recognise the unique sacrifice they make towards supporting their loved ones in the Armed Forces.

Careers with Sussex Partnership are not limited to frontline roles. We have opportunities in administration, finance, estates and facilities, digital, communications and management, to name just a few! 

You may have clinical skills and qualifications that already qualify you for certain roles at Sussex Partnership, but we have many other opportunities across our whole range of services that do not need any formal qualifications or training. We proactively demonstrate our forces-friendly credentials within our recruitment and selection processes, by having a Guaranteed Interview Scheme for those indicated as part of the Armed Forces Community.

We are committed to supporting our local armed forces community. You can be assured, that as an armed forces veteran, we understand your needs and will support you to be the best that you can be in your new career with the NHS.

We have set up the Sussex Partnership Armed Forces Community, a growing network of staff members, ex-service personnel, reservists and family members who offer peer-led support through drop ins, events and social activities.

We know that a positive work/life balance brings about huge health-related benefits; working in Sussex gives you the opportunity to enjoy the scenery of the South Downs National Park, take in the miles of scenic coastline and there’s easy access to Brighton and Hove by bus and London by train.

We would warmly welcome you giving us a call to discuss working for the Trust in advance of your application. Please contact: Armed Forces Covenant Lead Manager, Andy Stubbs at: andy.stubbs@spft.nhs.uk or call 0300 30 44 030.
