Job Details

Here at LPFT, our people lie at the heart of everything we do.

We employ around 2,700 staff who are pivotal in our success.

Do you want to join a Trust rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England, located in a county heralded as a fantastic place to live and work?

We provide mental health, learning disability and autism services to a local population of over 755,000 across 45 sites, as well as specialist services for children and young people.

We are leading the way with mental health transformation projects. Multi-million-pound schemes to transform patient environments and radically redesign community services are currently underway, as part of our commitment to reshaping the future of mental healthcare.

We believe the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce. This is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as 'outstanding' for well led and 'good' overall, and 75% of our staff recommending us as a place to work.

We offer options for flexible working and provide development pathways and opportunities. We have a proud partnership with the University of Lincoln and the Lincoln Medical School, which has expanded our academic offerings to nurture talent across the Trust.

We are committed to ensuring our workforce is diverse at all levels. We are currently under-represented particularly at senior leadership level, so we welcome applications from women, people with disabilities, people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and those from the LGBT communities.

We support and celebrate diversity. We have active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+), staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE) and our dedicated groups for men and women. We are a Silver Standard Employer with ENEI, were in the top 100 organisations in the county within the Stonewall Index (in 2019), and have been a finalist for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Mental Health Trust of the Year Award two years in a row.

We are a very successful Trust and are expanding our acute female inpatient services within Lincolnshire with a newly established 15 bedded unit. For this role we are offering all registered nurses an attractive employment package, including a welcome payment of £2,500 (paid in two instalments during year one) and £4,000 payment in lieu of relocation (to assist with commuting) or full relocation package** In addition there is a whole host of unique staff benefits and educational support as part of a nurse's CPD.
