There is much more to Essex than TOWIE

  • We believe working with us should benefit you professionally and personally. Whether you are just starting out on your career or already have experience we can offer you a position where your strengths, enthusiasm and skills will be rewarded and appreciated in many different ways. We recognise that there’s life outside work and that a good balance between work and other commitments and interests makes for a more motivated, engaged and effective workforce.
  • We are specialists in mental health and substance misuse services. We provide services to more than 20,000 people in North Essex, including Chelmsford, Maldon, Harlow, Colchester and Clacton to name a few. As a high performing provider we have much to offer both in terms of excellent specialist services to local people and employee benefits. Our top priority is to ensure that patients are safe. Another thing we are passionate about is to stop mental health stigma and discrimination.
  • Here at NEP we take staff development very seriously. We are committed to training people who work with us. We have excellent links with Essex University, Anglia Ruskin University and other local colleges giving you a wealth of opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge. A career at the Trust can offer you a constant stream of fresh challenges so you’ll always be stretching yourself and learning new skills. We have a flexible approach to training and development.
  • Juggling the demands of life is far from easy. That’s why we have a round-the-clock information and counselling support service to help you and your family members balance the demands of home with life at work. We have an Employee Assistance Programme which offers confidential and free helpline for staff and families where you can get expert advice on a range of emotional, legal and financical matters 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • We like to think of ourselves as a team. A team of more than 2000 people working together, developing together with our common goal of making people better. Some of our longest serving members of staff have worked for the Trust for more than 40 years. What kept them here for so long? Find out what they have to say about working here at NEP. You can read about our staff surveys in our Annual Reports.
  • You don’t need to be employed by the Trust to come and work with us on our bank. Should you choose to do so there are a range of benefits that you will have access to which in addition to earning extra money, gaining new skills and experience and training, may include access to the NHS Pension scheme. Our own in-house bank supply temporary skilled qualified and unqualified staff to all teams and departments across our Trust.
