Dorset HealthCare is a dynamic, forward-thinking Trust, running 12 local hospitals and providing a wide range of integrated community and mental health services to a population of almost 700,000 people. Whether working in busy urban locations such as Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Weymouth or serving residents in rural areas, our 5,000-strong workforce is at the heart of what we do.

Staff thrive in a supportive, 'family' atmosphere in which we recognise that the importance of how we do things is just as important as what we do, and what we achieve. We strongly encourage behaviours that promote compassion and care between colleagues, supporting staff to be proactive, positive, respectful, supportive, reliable and trustworthy. We are also an organisation which leads the way in challenging stigma and discrimination experienced by those with lived experience of mental health problems or emotional distress. We relish the chance to provide quality care - a recent survey showed that 90% of staff feel their work makes a difference to patients and service users.

As well as job satisfaction, staff enjoy benefits ranging from a car lease scheme to free use of beach huts, flexible working options and a host of advanced training and career development opportunities. We offer a 24/ 7 employee assistance service, alongside many health and wellbeing initiatives.

Dorset itself offers the opportunity for a truly outstanding work/life balance, whatever your age or outlook. Millions of people each year come to holiday in the place where most of our staff live and work every day - enjoying access to award-winning beaches along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, picture-postcard villages, great weather and stunning countryside. We have excellent schools, top-rated family attractions and endless sporting/leisure opportunities, plus plenty of country pubs and lively nightclubs.
