Staff support

King’s would not exist without its staff; it is as simple as that. So we place great emphasis on the ways in which we look after every person, in every role, in every department.

As part of our commitment to equal opportunities we aim to employ a workforce that is as representative as possible of the diverse population we serve, and have developed non-discriminatory recruitment, promotion and disciplinary procedures and policies to reflect this.

When you join us, you can take advantage of our Buddy Scheme which gives you the option of having a workplace mentor for your first few months at the Trust, to help you settle in more quickly.

We also provide full occupational health services to help support your health and wellbeing. These include our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which is there for you if you need assistance with work, family or personal issues.

We want you to be able to achieve your career goals with us, so we offer a wide range of professional development opportunities. We take this commitment so seriously that we were the first major acute hospital in the UK to be awarded the Gold Standard Investors in People (IIP).

Our success is based on the contributions of our staff, so we recognise and celebrate employees who have made a real difference to the Trust and our patients through King’s Awards.
