At SFT, we know that flexibility about how and when we work is more important than ever before. We’re all different - some of us live to work, and others want to work to live; you might want a regular 9 to 5, or you might just want to pick-up just the best-paid twilight shifts.
Whatever you need, there is a role and an employment pattern at SFT that can work for you. With more than 300 different careers on offer, as well as options to join the temporary staffing ‘bank’ or our permanent staffing teams, SFT can support you to find the right one.
Our flexible working patterns include:
As the largest employer in Salisbury, we have approximately 4,900 staff who speak over 26 different languages. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our workforce, with staff members from all over the world and different walks of life. We’re an inclusive workplace, where everyone is welcome, everyone can be authentic, and we are all encouraged to be the best version of ourselves.
Equality sits at the heart of everything we do, and we ensure that all employees have equal opportunity to develop, to apply for promotions, and to work flexibly.
A key part of how we support our diverse workforce is through our six Staff Networks.
Our Networks are one of our greatest assets, providing a safe space for discussion of issues relevant to that group, helping to raise awareness of issues within the whole workforce, providing individual support to colleagues who may face challenges at work and offer a collective voice to the Trust leadership.
We are proud to be a disability confident employer which means we have committed to improving our processes and culture in order to attract, recruit and retain disabled people to our Trust. We use a guaranteed interview scheme, so that if you have a disability and meet our essential criteria, we’ll guarantee you an invite to interview.
We also want to make requesting reasonable adjustments as simple as possible - just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your application ID and we’ll support you to give you the best chance at being successful at interview and happy in the workplace.
We also have an award-winning podcast series called 'Cake with Joe and Jayne' where we talk openly with some of our colleagues, exploring what makes us who we are.
The podcasts cover a series of topics including: Sexuality, Race & Place & Religion and is a fun way to discuss serious subjects and to help understand what makes up our diverse workforce.
The podcasts can be found on Apple, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts, or you can listen to all episodes here.
Message from Stacey Hunter (CEO)
The last few years have been a challenging time for the NHS nationally and us as a local hospital, but we have responded to these challenges, adapted our services, and continued to strive to deliver outstanding care to our patients.
In speaking to our patients, communities, staff and partners, we have recognised that whilst our vision of an Outstanding Experience remains central to what we do, our strategic plans to achieve this need to be more focussed on responding to the challenges we will face in the coming years. We will put improving the quality of our services at the forefront of what we do.
We think we have something special here at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust and are always looking for good people to join our team.
Our staff at Salisbury District Hospital have long been well regarded for the quality of care and treatment they provide for our patients and for their innovation, commitment and professionalism. This has been recognised in a wide range of achievements and it is reflected in our award of NHS Foundation Trust status. This is afforded to hospitals that provide the highest standards of care.
