Working for us

South Tees is one of the largest employers in the Tees Valley area with a workforce of almost 9,000 staff and is a great place to work.

Recruitment pack cover

We pride ourselves on patients receiving high quality, safe and efficient healthcare thanks to the hard work, commitment and dedication of our staff at The James Cook University Hospital, the Friarage Hospital and community hospitals in Hambleton, Richmondshire, Redcar and Cleveland.

To be a leader in excellence in health improvement and healthcare services, we want to be an employer of choice – for existing and future staff – with clinical teams and staff who have the ability and resources to achieve their goals for patients.

We recognise having an appropriately skilled, productive and effective workforce will strengthen our role in providing excellent patient care, education, research and development and ‘improving working lives’.

We were recently named as one of the top 100 healthcare organisations to work for in the UK by the Health Service Journal and Nursing Times after staff’s positive feedback about their working experiences and work/life balance and received one of the highest scores in the country for IWL – Improving Working Lives – practice plus accreditation.
