Excellent transport links mean you can commute to work from London. Or you may be someone who has been doing the commute in the other direction and now want to work closer to home.

Location:  Kent and Medway

Size: We employ 3,300 people, working in 66 buildings across 33 sites, serving 1.8M people

Come and work with us in the Garden of England where we combine exceptional professional development opportunities with a tremendous quality of life.

We are Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT), providing mental health, learning disability and specialist services, serving 1.8 million people across the county.

The Trust (rated Good overall by the CQC and Outstanding for care) has 3,283 staff working in 66 buildings across 33 locations, covering an area of 1,450 square miles.

You will be joining friendly, passionate colleagues, rich in their diversity, who are committed to providing excellent care to our service users and their loved ones.

The nature of our work attracts kindness and compassion as standard and everyone from our cleaners and porters to the chief executive and chairman are recognised as playing a vital role in providing an exemplary service.
Innovation is one of our core values and that is demonstrated in some of our award-winning teams:

  • Trailblazing work in the criminal justice system, a liaison and diversion service designed to support people out of custody for good, underpinned by bespoke technology
  • Our mother and baby unit, designed by mums with lived experience, helping to support fellow mums living with mental ill health, their baby and family
  • The vocational rehabilitation team, recognising routine and belonging as a way back to wellness, working with employers to offer hope after illness
  • Our Open Dialogue service puts the patient at the centre after their first instance of psychosis with meetings involving both family and professionals. 

Indulge your research interests with our enthusiastic team, who are involved in a whole host of national and home-grown studies with the potential to shape future healthcare.

There are exciting times ahead in 2020 when the Kent and Medway Medical School is set to open, collaboration between Canterbury Christ Church University and the University of Kent with KMPT one of the NHS partners, inspiring the next generation of medical professionals.

We are also at the forefront of partnership working, an integral part of the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership, looking at the way forward for sustainable health and social care.

Across our communities and within inpatient settings, our workforce is enhanced and strengthened by peer support workers, a brigade of PAT dogs and our wonderful team of volunteers.  

As well as a new hire bonus and financial support for relocation, we are supportive of flexible working arrangements; just talk to us. 

And what a place to live and work. The transport links to and from London and the continent are fantastic, but, simply put, you won’t want to leave. 

We are a family friendly county with first class state and independent schools and affordable housing. The average house price is here £360,000, so you get a lot of brick for your buck compared to neighbouring regions.

Whitstable and Deal have been voted two of the best places to live in the country with their vibrant high streets and incredible eateries. 

Margate and Folkestone are now world-class uber cool art destinations. 

We have the best collection of pubs, a heritage of brewing that is continuing with microbreweries, gin distilleries and vineyards offering gold medal refreshment.

We have breathtaking castles, cathedrals and country houses bursting with history and the mighty Bluewater shopping centre and a plethora of further choices for retail activities.

There are a wealth of activities to keep little ones occupied and then you have the 350 miles of beaches, cliffs and coves; a coastline that is both stunning and stimulating, whatever the weather.   

Once you have been wild swimming in Bewl Water, mountain-biked the muddy Bedgebury Pinetum, kite-surfed off Herne Bay or walked the windswept bird sanctuary of Dungeness or the resplendent Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you might just give up the gym membership for good. 

Your health and wellbeing and that of your family is as important to us as that of our service users and those who matter to them.

Meaningful and memorable work with people who will stay with you for the rest of your life.

What are you waiting for?
