Want to be part of the new NHS? Health and Care organisations in Dorset are at the forefront of transforming services to provide excellent, patient-centred care.

Dorset HealthCare recently achieved an Outstanding CQC status and is a dynamic forward-thinking Trust operating throughout Dorset. 

Dorset HealthCare plays a pivotal role in the strong partnership of public sector organisations across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. Our community and mental health trust has a caring and committed workforce of around 5,500 staff, serving a population of over 700,000 people.

We are looking for proactive, positive, respectful, supportive, reliable and trustworthy people to join us at Dorset HealthCare – we’re the biggest provider of healthcare in Dorset and offer exciting opportunities for people with a range of skills. We want to be better every day – do you?

‘This is an exciting time for us as we continue improving and adapting. I have seen some great innovation, fantastic teamwork and a real willingness to look at how we can do things differently’ – Eugine Yafele, Chief Executive (May 2019)





This is a great opportunity to become part of our HR team, in a critical role to support the HR Business Partners.


You’ll be working in partnership with designated localities/directorates to provide professional and effective customer-focused generalist HR advice on a range of topics including management of capability, sickness, disciplinary and grievance cases.   You will have the ability to apply HR policies and procedures, advising on appropriate solutions and best practice, supporting managers through coaching when required.


Reporting to an HR Business Partner, you will work closely with a team of Senior HR Advisors across the Trust, ensuring a consistent approach and providing support to one another. You’ll also be working closely with staff side colleagues as part of the organisation’s commitment to partnership working. There may be opportunities to deliver training and take part in projects to support the delivery of the Trust’s workforce strategy.


This role will involve travel to other Trust sites across Dorset.
