Can you demonstrate our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion? If so read on and take a look at the opportunity below...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust provides a range of mental health, learning disabilities and community health services for the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Our 5500 staff serve a population of one million from over 100 sites across the region.


Are you looking for a change of area or simply need more flexibility to manage your work/life balance? Then working for the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust Bank may be just the answer!

The Trust Bank provides cover to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and we are looking to increase the number of bank staff we have available to support our services in these areas.

Being flexible in your work availability helps increase the chances of us matching shift requirements to your availability, but we do understand that some people want to work locally. Our temporary staffing system offers posts out to all people in our bank who have the relevant skills and qualifications and then it is up to the individual to decide whether they are interested in putting themselves forward for a particular shift.

If you are looking for flexible work that can fit around your other commitments, then this could be just what you're looking for.

In return for your hard work and your professional, caring and reliable service we offer:

  • Competitive pay
  • Paid annual leave accrual
  • First choice of available shifts
  • Access to the NHS or NEST pension scheme
  • Free training and development opportunities
  • Experience gained by working in a variety of environments
  • Support and assistance with NMC revalidation


Visit our Website for details of the various Mental Health/Learning disability services we support.




We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

We offer a generous benefits package - details of these benefits, our organisational pledge along with other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert. Staff on other types of contract can access some of the above- please check you understand what is available in the role you are applying to.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which can be found in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic (BME) communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. The Trust will meet the initial cost-it will then be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS community, and meet the essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
