The Trust provides a range of hospital services to around 430,000 local people, as well as an increasing range of more specialised services outside South Tyneside and Sunderland.

It also provides a range of community services across South Tyneside, Sunderland and Gateshead, with particular focus on community nursing, family care and therapy.

Melanie Johnson, the Trust’s executive director of nursing, midwifery and allied health professionals, said: “We are looking to recruit staff with the right skills and values to join our innovative and dynamic teams in delivering nationally-recognised, high quality, compassionate care.

“They need to be enthusiastic and motivated and to have a passion for life-long learning. In return, we offer opportunities for flexible working, great staff benefits and career progression.”
