Our people lie at the heart of what we do. Over 2,500 excellent, well trained and motivated staff are what make us successful. You could be part of a Trust rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England, in and around a location heralded as a fantastic place to live and work.

"Lincoln has been crowned the best UK city to raise a family, thanks to its outstanding schools, clean air quality, safety and average property price." 
House Beautiful, September 2020

"If you're looking for a part-time commute - this hilly city is on the up...

"It's an endurance test of brightly painted, hanging basket-bedecked independent shops and tearooms, voted Britain's best street by the Academy of Urbanism in 2011 and is still as pretty nine years on."
The Times, October 2020

We firmly believe that the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce. This is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall as well our staff rating us above average in nine of the ten themes in the latest national staff survey, and 75% recommending the organisation as a place to work.

We are dedicated to offering opportunities for flexible working across all of our services as we understand and value the importance of a great work-life balance, and are committed to providing pathways and opportunities for development for all staff. We are proud of our partnership with the University of Lincoln and the Lincoln Medical School, which has been supporting the expansion of our academic offerings to nurture and value talent across the Trust.

We value allowing people to be themselves, and are committed to being openly supportive and celebrating diversity. We have three active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+) and staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE). This has resulted in annual staff conferences and some great national accolades such as the Trust being included in the Top 100 organisations in the country within the Stonewall Index.

In partnership with staff, volunteers, patients and carers we have developed our values, behaviours and culture over the past three years and we live by them.

Staff recognition is at the heart of our values. We're proud of the achievements of our staff and volunteers, and that's why value the importance of celebrating success through our Staff Excellence Awards and LPFT Heroes Awards. 

Our leaders are compassionate, supportive and look at solution focused outcomes, working on a theme of continuous improvement.

Great rewards, benefits and opportunities - why not join us?
