The Trust produces a Workforce Plan, which profiles its workforce as well as highlighting how its workforce will develop in line with its service plans. It also works with other agencies to consider workforce needs of the wider NHS community within the city and the communities that the Trust serves.
Workforce information is key to this and a range of reports is provided from the Electronic Staff Record system (ESR) which allow the Trust to consider future workforce changes as well as breakdown the current workforce by key characteristics.
The Trust also undertakes work to encourage future workers to access jobs and careers within the Trust including planned work experience programmes with schools and colleges. It also works with other agencies in the city to equip external candidates with appropriate skills for entry level posts, and works with unemployed people to provide experience and development to help make people job ready for roles within the Trust.
