The nature of this post requires the post holder to be diplomatic, sensitive, and able to support the delivery of the best care possible for our patients.

The Kleinwort Centre is a 23-bed unit in Haywards Heath with close links to other community inpatient services. We pride ourselves in caring for patients of all ages with a variety of complex medical conditions and those who have post-surgical rehabilitation needs. Our last Care Quality Commission inspection rated our community inpatient services as Outstanding for caring and our overall Trust rating as Good. If you are passionate about making a difference and want to contribute to an organisation which is continuously striving to improve then we would love to hear from you.

In return we can offer you:

  • Flexible working patterns
  • Supportive learning environment
  • Dedicated career pathways and great opportunities for continuing professional development
  • Commitment to and support for your health and wellbeing
  • NHS Pension Scheme

If you are committed to providing care in a compassionate and safe environment then working at the Kleinwort Centre will be an opportunity for you to use your existing skills, gain new ones and be part of a great team. Apply now!
