Flexibility and support
We want working at CMFT to be as happy and secure an experience as possible. Outlined below are just some of the ways we try to help our staff enjoy a great quality of life.
We strongly believe in the principle of flexible working, and try to put it into practice wherever possible. There are currently many different flexible working options in operation. These include flexitime, job share, annualised hours, term-time-only contracts, part-time opportunities and extended days.
Unsurprisingly, the health of our staff is of utmost importance to us. All our employees have access to a full range of occupational health services, most of which are onsite. Flu vaccinations are offered on an annual basis.
There are lots of schemes in place to help you keep fit, including yoga classes and weight-loss workshops. As an NHS employee, you will be able to join any JJB healthclub for free (we also have a no-joining-fee arrangement with a number of David Lloyd leisure centres).
Peace of mind
We recognise that our working environment can be high-pressured and demanding. Confidential support and advice are always available, including one-to-one counselling services. We also have a Chaplaincy Service, offering pastoral and spiritual care.
Chapel facilities and prayer rooms provide spaces for quiet, reflection and peace, and can be found throughout our hospitals.
