Welcome to Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT) and the new career choice you have (or did not realise you have) been looking for.
COVID-19 has brought with it many challenges but it has also shown us other ways of effective working that look set to be adopted moving forward.
This includes home working and the smart use of technology for both appointments with service users and staying connected to colleagues. Talk to us about how that could make a difference in your life.
As well as a new hire bonus (£15,000*) and financial support for relocation (up to £8,000*), we want to understand what flexibility means to you. Is it a nine-day fortnight or condensed hours? Do you have caring responsibilities? Is there a certain day you cannot work for personal reasons? Talk to us.
We are stronger in our diversity with 52 nations represented and we want the real you to turn up at work; it is an environment where you are encouraged to be yourself.
“I can feel a real shift in feeling safer to speak up @kmptnhs We are getting better at listening without judgement. We are getting better at resisting the urge to jump to action. The networks (BAME, Faith, (dis)Ability and LGBTQ+) are reducing the effects of isolation and broadening views #stilllistening” - Celina on Twitter
We are all responsible for the evolving culture and the movement is tangible.
