We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community, regardless of age, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, maternity/pregnancy, marriage/civil partnership or sexual orientation status. All part time, job share and flexible working applications will be considered and supported, where possible. We particularly encourage applicants with lived experience of mental health issues.

At Devon Partnership NHS Trust we want to attract and retain talented people and create a great place to work with a shared sense of pride and ambition. Our vision is to have an inclusive society where the importance of mental health and wellbeing is universally understood and valued.
