COVID 19 Risk Assessment

Due to Covid 19 we have introduced a staff risk assessment into our pre-employment process.

This is intended to ensure you are able to safely perform your duties in any of our work areas, and if you have been identified as being vulnerable to coronavirus. Our main aim is to reduce risk and to ensure the safety of all new starters as well as current staff, patients and visitors.

If it is identified that you are within a vulnerable category, we will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate this.

Tier 2 Sponsorship

We welcome applications from individuals who require Tier 2 sponsorship. NON-UK candidates may not be appointed if the Trust is unable to satisfy the Home Office Visa requirements or there is a appointable applicant who already holds the right to work in the UK.

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.
