Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.

The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.

The NHS has been faced with unprecedented challenges in the last 12 months, and the health and wellbeing of our colleagues has never been more vital and important.

Barts Health NHS Trust are the largest Trust in London, comprising 4 hospitals, and employing a diverse workforce of over 24,000 including our temporary and bank staff.

Significant large investments in the wellbeing agenda have allowed us to implement short-term initiatives to support our staff through the most difficult times in the pandemic, as well as invest in a portfolio of longer-term initiatives that will be pivotal in the on-going protection of our colleagues physical, psychological and financial wellbeing.

Our current Head of Employee Wellbeing Service is retiring in 2021, having developed and grown the Employee Wellbeing Service to be a high performing and income generating department during her tenure.  The service was re-assessed for SEQOHS accreditation in November 2020 and granted full accreditation for 5 years with no recommendations.  The service includes a strong and growing portfolio of private contracts with a current annual income of over £400k.


As the successful candidate, you will have a pivotal role in the protection of the provision of support for our colleague’s physical and psychological wellbeing, and will continue providing a central role in the management of our response to COVID-19.

You will have a keen focus on team and service development, and possess the inter-personal skills required to form effective working relationships across a large and complex organisation in addition to clients in the private sector.  You will also have a strong understanding of the role of occupational health and workplace support.

We welcome applications from candidates who have either a clinical or managerial background, and who can balance the leadership demands of the role alongside the delivery of effective clinical services.


This is an essential and pivotal role, and as such we will be conducting a robust recruitment process to ensure that we select the best possible candidate for the role, and that they are confident this is the right role and organisation for them.  Elements of assessment will include a written report, stakeholder presentation, and formal panel interview. 


Candidates are actively encouraged to have an informal conversation with us about this opportunity with Liam Slattery, Director of People Services.  To arrange this, please contact Melanie Andrew (PA) via or 07729 123 237.  Please note that appointments will be available between Monday 12th April – Friday 16th April only.
