Today, the team at East Kent Hospitals will care for more than 2,000 people. Most of these people and their loved ones will be at a significant moment in their lives – an emergency situation, a diagnosis, a new life or a last chance to say goodbye.
That’s why if you are passionate about people, you’re the perfect fit for us, whether you are a health professional or someone who can bring your valuable skills ‘behind the scenes’.
Our vision is ‘great healthcare from great people’ – if you are great at what you do and want to work in an environment where you can give your best, come and be part of the team!
In return, we promise to give you all the opportunities and development we can, so you can enjoy a great career with us. We also offer a great reward package, from help with childcare to fantastic discounts to enjoy whatever you are doing in your time off. Whether it’s big-city stores, the coast, funky boutiques, a cutting-edge club scene or vineyards, cider farms, castles and cathedrals you’re after, we have it all on our doorstep!
With some fantastic schools, and quick and easy access to London – and Europe – it’s a great place to live and work.
