We are part of Bradford District Care Foundation Trust; a provider of award winning, high quality mental health, community and learning disability services.  We pride ourselves on offering good working conditions, lifelong learning, fair pay, staff benefits.   We champion staff involvement and a balance between working and personal life. We are also a certified Disability Confident Employer.

What is on offer?

With Bradford District and Craven Talking Therapies services expanding and developing, it’s an exciting time to be part of a Talking Therapies team. There are many roles that form various and vital parts of our service.

At Bradford District and Craven Talking Therapies, we pride ourselves on being a supportive and welcoming service, with a strong focus on staff wellbeing. We have structures in place to support your needs and encourage all staff to be involved in this.  We will care for you, your role and support career development, while you care for the people who need our help.

Staff are offered opportunities to work with colleagues and the wider leadership team on projects, contributing to the service’s continuous improvement and development.  We are committed to working together to help us to evolve and meet the future needs of the diverse community that we serve.

We are dedicated to clinical excellence, with all staff having access to our high-quality Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme.  All clinical staff receive regular line management and clinical supervision to ensure opportunity to further develop and grow.   Staff have opportunities to become ‘champions’ of professional special interest areas (such as perinatal, cultural diversity, LGBTQIA+ or older adults), with restorative reflective spaces offered.
