We have just entered into a Service Level Agreement for the established and diverse Acute team to also provide the chaplaincy service to the local Mental Health and Community Hospitals. This is an exciting development that allows us to expand our team with these new appointments.
We are looking for enthusiastic and friendly chaplains to join the Chaplaincy team across Leicester's acute hospitals which comprise the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust - one of the largest trusts in the country, as well as the Leicestershire Partnership Trust with Mental Health and Community Hospital sites throughout Leicester and Leicestershire.
You will join an ecumenical and multi-faith team (currently comprising 11 paid staff and 80 volunteers) to provide religious, spiritual and pastoral care to patients, visitors and staff. We are looking for people who are eager to work in a multi-faith context in the setting of an acute teaching hospital. You will also be working alongside the NHS's first paid non-religious chaplaincy team member.
You will have accreditation/licensing with authority to practice as a world religion or belief (including non-religious beliefs) leader/representative and/or pastoral worker.
You will have a substantial pastoral experience. Previous experience of chaplaincy or healthcare is desirable.
