This is the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our services to you. We will be displaying virtual tours of some of our areas, along with presentations from our departments showing our prospective staff why we have been voted one of the ‘Best Places to Work in the NHS’ (Health Service Journal). With our developing services and welcoming culture, we believe that working for us will be an exciting journey for you.

We offer all employees some fantastic staff benefits and professional development opportunities, such as salary sacrifice schemes, a staff lottery and in-house training. Our sites also benefit from being in a great location. Whether you're attracted to the bright lights of the city or the countryside of Kent, both are within easy reach.

We fully support flexible working and embrace equality and diversity, so encourage part time applicants.

Careers within the Trust are incredibly rewarding, and thanks to positive feedback from many of our patients, are definitely worthwhile. We already have an excellent reputation, with our most recent CQC visit earning us a ‘good’ rating. With your help, we intend to continue to build on it with our Journey to Outstanding #J2O.

Please note that registration to this event is essential to enable us to control numbers. Please submit your interest by completing an application form and we will be in touch to confirm your attendance on the day.

If you have any queries please contact April Conran, Deputy Recruitment Manager via email on or via phone on 01322428517.
