Join our growing estates, facilities and maintenance team

If you’ve got practical skills then a role in estates services could suit you.

Our estates services staff look after our hospital buildings and the grounds around them. Like any buildings, our hospitals need repairs and regular maintenance. As the needs of the NHS change, existing buildings need to be extended or renovated and new sites built. The the building needs to be looked after – walls, floors and windows – as well as the systems inside them – heating, power and ventilation.  All this work needs skilled staff, often from the construction sector.

Our hospitals need to be safe and welcoming for staff and patients. Any repairs need to be carried out to a high standard by skilled tradespeople. These roles include: carpenter/joiner jobs, electrician jobs, painter and decorator jobs, plumber jobs, as well as garden and grounds staff.

This is an exciting time to join the Trust as we have successfully secured more than £312m of investment from the Government for the reconfiguration of our two hospitals. This is your chance to be involved in a team responsible for major change within our hospitals.
