This is a place where place matters. We’re committed to improving the life opportunities, inclusion, social mobility and health and wellbeing of our local population. By 2020 the NCA commits to recruit over half of its workforce from the communities we serve. We know there is strong evidence linking decent work with good health. By employing local people we are supporting our local economy and infrastructure. This is our social value and anchor mission.
We know that for many, a small taste of what it’s like to work in healthcare is enough to raise their aspirations and fuel a desire to work in the NHS.
This is why our Widening Participation Team are dedicated to building a programme of work to target pockets of our community who would benefit from additional help to access opportunities. Our aim is to support these individuals to gain paid employment, learn new skills or simply gain exposure to the world of healthcare.
We hope that by reaching-out and connecting in this way, we can start to raise awareness of the many career opportunities available within the NHS and begin to build bridges with our future workforce.
