Armed Forces

NELFT is an Armed Forces friendly organisation providing bespoke wellbeing support to members of the Armed Forces community. We have signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant and have been awarded ‘Gold Award’ under the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme.

We invest a lot in equality and diversity making sure the workforce is as representative as the patients we look after this gives me a sense of belonging and is one of the reasons I love being at NELFT so much.

I’ve been at NELFT for 20 years, I’ve stayed in NELFT for as long as I have because the values of this organisation are in line with my own beliefs, putting people first, prioritising quality, are key to the way I work and live. Everything we do at NELFT is about making a difference to the population we serve.

NELFT are as committed to the staff as they are to the patients, there’s a strong emphasis on looking after our own mental health and you can access things like support groups and yoga sessions which really helps.

Every day is different and that’s one of things I love about this job. You never know what you’re coming into, but you always feel supported by the wider team to make those big decisions for your patients.

The Gold Award demonstrates that; we provide ten extra paid days leave for Reservists to enable them to attend their annual camp, have supportive HR policies in place, as well as a guaranteed interview scheme in place for Veterans, Reserves, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers and Spouses and Partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.

We have an Armed Forces staff network and host insight events to raise awareness of the unique contributions and skills that members of the armed forces community bring to our Trust.
