We are an Equal Opportunities Employer and are signatories of the Mindful Employer Charter which underlines our commitment to enhancing the emotional wellbeing of all staff. This commitment begins when you apply to work at our organisation. We will support individuals through reasonable adjustments both at interview and during ongoing employment. In line with the principles of flexible working and improving work life balance, all advertised full time posts will be considered for job share or part time.

We welcome applicants with lived experience of providing unpaid care and/or support to a family member or friend with a disability, physical or mental health condition, addiction or other healthcare need.

We take pride in being a partner organisation in the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Research Network and are committed to supporting research activity as part of the services we provide. We have research projects running across all specialties which are providing evidence and informing local and national practice.

Applicants who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK are welcome, but such candidates will not be appointed to the post if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates, as the employing body will, in those circumstances, be unable to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test requirements, as required by UKVI. All applicants must state their current immigration status, including expiry dates, on their application.

All job offers are subject to Agenda for Change T&C’s, excluding medical posts. Offers may also be subject to a Standard or Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate, dependent on the position.

HDFT takes its responsibility for the Safeguarding of Children & Vulnerable Adults seriously. Each member of staff must comply with the HDFT policy, procedures and strategies relating to Safeguarding.

In submitting an application form, you automatically authorise the Trust to confirm any previous NHS service details via the ESR IAT process, should you be appointed.

Disclosure and Barring Service Check

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as CRB) to check for any previous criminal convictions.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020. UK Visas and Immigration requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, have had to present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) are also subject to this requirement.
