Home 5 Careers 5 Why NECS?

If you want to make a difference to people’s lives with your work and be part of something unique and exciting, then NECS is the right place for your career. Our people tell us that it is truly rewarding to be able to see the impact they are having on patient services through their roles here. 

But it’s not just about job satisfaction – you can also trust us with your future. We offer a huge range of opportunities for everyone, whatever stage your career is at, and there has never been a better time to come and work with our team.  

We will invest in your development, as well as technology which empowers and equips you to deliver outstanding work. NECS is part of the NHS, so you can expect financial rewards such as the NHS pension scheme and flexible working practices as standard, but we already know you will be looking for an employer who cares about social responsibility. We offer all our employees the opportunity to donate one volunteer day a year as part of the NECS volunteer scheme – so you can make a difference outside of the workplace as well as in it.

Like you, our values make us who we are. We have five core values at NECS which are of the utmost importance to us and link to everything we do – our people often tell us our values are why they came to work at NECS and we expect they will resonate with you too. We are an organisation that cares about our people and we work hard to behave consistently with our values. 

Being a diverse organisation is incredibly important to NECS and we welcome a wide range of people and skillsets. Some of our team have NHS backgrounds and some have fantastic transferable skills, but we value our different perspectives and diversity of thought.

At NECS we believe that gender, race and background shouldn’t limit anyone’s career potential and we work hard to recruit and retain people who represent the world we want to work in. We are committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for our people, customers and the communities we serve.

Your wellbeing is also important to us. We are Better Health at Work Ambassadors and we run programmes of wellbeing activities throughout the year – we have trained mental health first aiders and champions, menopause cafes and champions and a variety of staff networks for you to join. Ultimately, NECS is committed to creating an environment that supports everyone’s mental and physical health.
