Working at Barts and The London

Model employer


The quality of Barts and The London’s 6,800 staff – and the further 1,000 vital support staff who are managed by our new hospitals partners – enables us to deliver excellence. As an organisation, we are committed to recruiting and retaining the highest calibre staff, and to valuing and supporting them through education and training. We were one of the first trusts to be awarded Practice Plus accreditation in the national Improving Working Lives initiative in recognition of our achievement as a good employer, offering support to our staff with a strong emphasis on work-life balance.

A great place to work

Barts and The London is committed to ensuring that both clinical and non-clinical staff are valued by recognising their achievements and giving them opportunities to develop their skills and careers to a high standard.

Recruiting the best and recruiting locally

Model employer - post room

As well as attracting motivated, high-quality staff, we want Barts and The London’s workforce to reflect the local population – the most diverse in Europe in terms of language, culture, religion and ethnicity – so that our services are more culturally and linguistically sensitive.  In addition, a more local workforce contributes to regeneration, especially around Whitechapel, by providing sustainable development opportunities for local people.

Innovative learning and development

Our dedicated learning and development team offers training and support to ensure that departments have the right staff and skills to enable them to respond quickly to future changes in healthcare provision.

Developing the clinical workforce

Model employer - doctor and patient

Barts and The London works closely with our partners at St Bartholomew School of Nursing and Midwifery and at Barts and The London, Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry, to ensure that our hospitals continue to play an important role in teaching and developing the clinicians of the future.

Building strong leadership and management skills

Barts and The London needs good managers and leaders to sustain the high performance of our teams and individuals, and we have focused resources on developing our senior staff to the highest standards.
