All posts involving access to persons in receipt of health services will be subject to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. However, having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us; this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances of your offences. Disabled applicants, in line with our commitment to the Disability Confident Scheme, will be guaranteed an interview where they meet the essential criteria and declare their disabled status. The Trust will accept applications in other formats where applicants have disabilities that require a reasonable adjustment for them to be able to apply for vacancies; consideration in respect of additional time for postage/delivery time etc will be given. Staff recruited from outside of the NHS will usually be appointed at the bottom of the pay band. Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced or skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as it is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration requires employers to complete this test to show that suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.
