Why join SHSC?

  • Offering the best possible care to our service users and carers

We want to provide high quality, caring and responsive services to the communities we serve.  We want our service users to receive the best possible care we can provide.  We want our service users, carers and staff to recommend us as a good place to receive treatment and care.  We also want our staff to recommend us as a good place to work.  Your skills, experience and dedication could help us to achieve this.

You will be joining an organisation which puts service user and carer engagement at the heart of everything we do.  We work hard to continuously improve the quality and safety of our services.  We listen to and learn from feedback from our service users, carers, staff, partners and the public.  We value our staff and support them to develop through education and training.

Our values

Respect.  Compassion.  Partnership.  Accountability.  Fairness.  Ambition.

Our vision

To improve the mental, physical and social wellbeing of the people in our communities.

  • Valuing diversity and supporting leadership

We aim to create an environment for staff to thrive irrespective of their ethnicity, nationality, colour or religion.  To help us achieve this we have developed a mentoring project, re-launched our BME Staff Network Group and regularly promote development opportunities.  We have launched an annual Working Together Conference to encourage BME colleagues to take on lead roles and have a positive presence in their workplaces.

Our Build, Modify, Expand (BME) project focuses on mentoring staff at all levels across the Trust.  The mentoring model consists of five members of the Board of Directors being involved with five members of staff from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in senior positions who in turn provide mentoring to five members of staff from BME backgrounds in more junior positions.  Our BME project won ‘most effective use of diversity to strengthen governance, recruitment or promotion’ category at the Healthcare People Management Association (HPMA) Excellence in HRM Awards 2017.

We are committed to ensuring that all staff achieve their full potential in an environment characterised by dignity and mutual respect.  Within our teams valuing difference is fundamental; it enables staff to create respectful work environments and to deliver high quality care and services while giving service users the opportunity to reach their full potential.

  • Supporting your work / life balance

We offer flexible working opportunities including job sharing, carer’s leave, parental and adoption leave and career breaks.  We also have an in-house Bank Office which means you can opt to work occasional shifts within our services on days and at times to suit you.  Contact our Bank Office to find out more: or 0114 2263053.
