Here at Southend University Hospital we strive to provide high quality care for every patient, every time.

We would be nothing without our staff. So it goes without saying that when it comes to recruiting new team members, we're looking for the best. We encourage staff to be innovative, to challenge the "as is" and to always put patients first.

We want staff who will live our trust values every day.

Care with compassion, Working together, Professional and accountable

This is an exciting time to join us. The three NHS trusts that currently run Broomfield, Southend and Basildon hospitals are planning to become a new single NHS organisation by mid-2019.

 All three hospitals will continue to provide the services our patients use the most. These include outpatient appointments, children’s services and day-case surgery.  All three hospitals will continue to provide 24/7 A&E and maternity services.

By working as one team we will provide the same high standard of care and services for all of our 1.2m local residents. Using the same equipment, processes and IT systems means services will run more smoothly.  Single leadership, standards and new structures will speed up decision making.  Combined corporate services will reduce duplication and cut running costs. This means more money for front-line services and faster improvements.


Attracting new talent is key to our future and the scale of our organisation will give far  more career, training and development opportunities for all our staff.




We are currently looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic Occupational Therapist to join our inpatient Occupational therapy service.

The role will involve working with a varied aged care caseload, liaising closely with our MDT colleagues in order to promoting quality of life and support safe discharge.
The role offers opportunities to develop clinically and managerially within a friendly and supportive environment. Training and clinical development opportunities are available, with support to attend recognised courses within the area of your post to support your development in addition to providing comprehensive in-service training and regular clinical supervision. We will also support the development of your skills in appraisal management and leadership skills with relevant courses.

In return we offer a strong and supportive Inpatient Therapy Team with Band 7 Team Leaders who are highly experienced in their fields, providing support and training opportunities for personal development. We have an established inservice training program, a practice development Occupational Therapist and actively encourage CPD.

The role will include the supervision of students and the mentoring of Band 5 Occupational Therapists, Activities of Daily Living Advisors and Rehabilitation Assistants.

At Southend Hospital NHS Trust we strongly believe in patient care and want to attract likeminded people to help build and maintain a supportive and enjoyable place to work.
