The Chief Executive of East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, (EKHUFT) Matthew Kershaw, has signed a pledge demonstrating the Trust’s commitment to support the employment of people with learning disabilities.
The NHS benefits from having a workforce that is as diverse as possible. We need to make the most of the range of talents, expertise and experience of a workforce that also represent the patients that we serve.
In a project jointly supported with Health Education England for Kent, Surrey and Sussex, EKHUFT has identified a number of departments and wards to pilot a scheme where a job opportunity is created as part of a ‘job carving’ process.
Job carving is a term for modifying job duties, and can used in different circumstances, to create specialist job roles and free the time of skilled staff. The process also involves swapping job duties to make the most of individual skills.
We are now delighted to announce we have positions that could soon be yours!
All we are asking for is a letter of interest and CV, and you can be part of something special. For more information, look at the Advert's and Job Description's below.
