Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT) is an award winning Trust that provides health and social care services for a population of 1.3million people in Essex, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, and Luton. CQC says we're still GOOD and now we're OUTSTANDING for caring!

We employ 5,000 people working across more than 200 sites.

Our services include:

Mental health services
  • We provide a wide range of treatment and support to young people, adults and older people experiencing mental illness both as inpatients and within the community. This includes treatment in secure and specialised settings.

Community health services
  • Our diverse range of community health services provide support and treatment to both adults and children. We deliver this care in community hospitals, health centres, GP surgeries and in people's homes.

Learning disabilities services
  • We provide crisis support and inpatient services and our community learning disability teams work in partnership with local councils to provide assessment and support for adults with learning disabilities.

Social care
  • We provide personalised social care support to people with a range of needs, including people with learning disabilities or mental illness, supporting people to live independently.

We are looking for individuals to join the EPUT team and be part of transforming services in our communities.

In return we can offer exceptional education, training and development opportunities as well as a wide range of benefits, which include flexible working opportunities, salary sacrifice schemes and the opportunity to buy or sell up to one week of annual leave to support a healthy work-life balance. In addition to this the Trust also offers a generous relocation package where applicants meet the eligibility criteria.

Our approach to recruitment is values based and applicant's must be able to demonstrate the organisations values and behaviours.

We are able to offer an exciting job opportunity to an individual who meets the job specification to work within our Education Team as part of the Workforce Development and Learning department. EPUT is committed to the development and progression of our staff through apprenticeship programmes.

The successful applicant will be joining our team of Apprenticeship assessors planning, delivering and reviewing the in-house apprenticeship programs which are delivered within the organisation.

The successful applicant will also take part in review of programmes in relation to inspection by external agencies.

The role will require the successful post holder to be able to work across different Trust locations within Essex and be happy to engage in blended learning approaches. The role is designed to enhance the quality of the learning experience and to encourage and inspire staff with regards to their development and progression within the organisation.

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
