Job Details

1 Permanent full-time post and 2 band 7 12 months secondments at the Bradford site on the Najurally Centre.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a brand new service for West Yorkshire and Barnsley delivering inpatient services to people with a learning disability. Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have come together to provide specialist inpatient services from two units at the Horizon Centre in Wakefield and a new assessment and treatment unit (ATU) at Lynfield Mount Hospital in Bradford which opened in the summer of 2021.

Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust are also part of the governance and assurance group to ensure that the new arrangement works for people in Leeds, but the Trust is no longer a provider of inpatient services.

Our ambition is to create a West Yorkshire Centre of Excellence across these two units, providing great support for people through a truly collaborative partnership approach that benefits those in need of specialist inpatient care. We aspire to make this a great place to work and to do that, we need you!

We are looking for kind, enthusiastic, caring, compassionate, and motivated people who really want to make a difference to people's lives, and who can also help us realise our ambitions to serve the people living across West Yorkshire and Barnsley, so that they can access high quality, specialised care as close to home as possible.

Main duties of the job

Our aim is to create a culture of continuous improvement, inclusivity and trust. We encourage and celebrate diversity, and welcome candidates who reflect the communities we support.

A friendly service where we promote work-life balance, flexible working, and local recognition awards for a great job done, which meets the needs of people, we aim to offer as much flexibility as we can whether that's job share, part-time or other work pattern. If it works for the service, we will do our best to make it work for you.

We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds, including candidates from ethnic minority communities who can deliver culturally sensitive services and people who are disabled and are currently under-represented throughout our services. We love talent and we would love the opportunity to talk to you and hear about yours.

We have made a positive commitment to employing people with a disability and guarantee to interview all candidates who meet the minimum essential criteria for the role as set out in role profiles.
