The NHS has been faced with unprecedented challenges in the last 12 months, and the health and wellbeing of colleagues has never been more vital and important.

Barts Health NHS Trust are the largest Trust in London, comprising 4 hospitals, and employing a diverse workforce of over 24,000 including our temporary and bank staff.

Significant large investments in the wellbeing agenda have allowed them to implement short-term initiatives to support their staff through the most difficult times in the pandemic, as well as invest in a portfolio of longer-term initiatives that will be pivotal in the on-going protection of their colleagues physical, psychological and financial wellbeing.

Their current Head of Employee Wellbeing Service is retiring in 2021, having developed and grown the Employee Wellbeing Service to be a high performing and income generating department during her tenure. The service was re-assessed for SEQOHS accreditation in November 2020 and granted full accreditation for 5 years with no recommendations. The service includes a strong and growing portfolio of private contracts with a current annual income of over £400k.

As the successful candidate, you will have a pivotal role in the protection of the provision of support for colleague’s physical and psychological wellbeing, and will continue providing a central role in the management of their response to COVID-19.

You will have a keen focus on team and service development, and possess the inter-personal skills required to form effective working relationships across a large and complex organisation in addition to clients in the private sector. You will also have a strong understanding of the role of occupational health and workplace support.

Barts Health NHS Trust welcome applications from candidates who have either a clinical or managerial background, and who can balance the leadership demands of the role alongside the delivery of effective clinical services.

This is an essential and pivotal role, and as such we will be conducting a robust recruitment process to ensure that we select the best possible candidate for the role, and that they are confident this is the right role and organisation for them.
