Supporting staff with dependents
you have childcare responsibilities, we subsidise a holiday play-scheme
and offer an on-site nursery. We also offer childcare vouchers and
employ a child and care co-ordinator to help you find the right
childcare solutions for your needs.
We try to be as supportive as possible to staff who
have particular needs at different stages in their careers. We recognise
the needs of staff who have elderly, disabled or other dependents and
offer them understanding, flexibility and support.
We also offer excellent arrangements for staff wanting to take maternity, paternity and adoption leave.
support staff in finding the right work-life balance, whether they have
childcare commitments or for other reasons. The most important factor in
deciding if we can support a request for flexible working is whether we
can continue to deliver a high quality service to our patients, our
families and our staff.
Our staff work a wide range of patterns including
annualised hours, term-time working, self-rostering, compressed hours,
job shares and, of course, part-time working.

options before apply to work here, please feel free to contact the Human
Resources department on 020 7829 7925.
Equality and diversity
patients come from many different backgrounds and we think our hospital
can only benefit by having staff who are equally diverse.
Our commitment to workforce diversity means much
more than having policies and procedures. We take positive steps to help
ensure that everyone who works at GOSH has the same chance to develop
and is treated with the same level of respect.
We are genuinely committed to equality of
opportunity in employment and encourage applications from all sections
of the community.
We are a Positive About Disabled People "two tick"
organisation and work very closely with our Occupational Health team and
external bodies to give people with disabilities the support they need
to work for us successfully.
We ask all applicants to tell us about their
personal information to help us monitor our processes and ensure that we
treat everyone fairly. This information is not seen or used by the
shortlisting or selection panel.
Criminal record background checks
will check the criminal record of all successful job applicants to an
enhanced level. This will therefore also include a check against the
Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) Children list.
The presence of a conviction will not necessarily
mean that employment is not offered - we will consider the type of
offence, the nature of the vacancy applied for and all other relevant
Information received as a result of these checks will be held in the strictest confidence.
For further information on criminal records and employment please contact our Human Resources Department or visit the Criminal Records Bureau pages
of the Home Office website.
