Staff benefits

We offer a comprehensive and competitive employment package to ensure you benefit from your hard work in the communities we serve.

We reward you with a generous annual leave allowance that increases the longer you work for us.

  • Starting rate: 27 days per year plus 8 bank holidays
  • After 5 years: 29 days per year plus 8 bank holidays
  • After 10 years: 33 days per year plus 8 bank holidays

If you work part-time, your annual leave entitlement will be pro-rata based on the number of hours you work.

Our childcare voucher scheme means parents can benefit from tax breaks. Savings can be around £1,000 per year.

There are also several nurseries local to trust sites where staff can benefit from discounts of up to 12%.

Our professional counselling service provides staff with free advice and counselling for a variety of issues such as stress, loss or bereavement, work difficulties and personal issues. This is a confidential service to support you.

Staff can save up to 40% when buying a bicycle and safety equipment through the trust's Cycle to Work Scheme, which is run under a salary sacrifice arrangement.

If you have an injury or chronic pain that is affecting your ability to do your job, you can be referred for fast track physiotherapy to help you recover as quickly as possible.

We have a wide range of flexible working opportunities, including part-time, job sharing and term time (or part year) working. Our ‘balancing work and personal life’ policy includes provision for carer leave, job-sharing, career breaks, parental leave, paternity and adoption leave.

Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust is keen to encourage staff to continue to play an active part in the life of the NHS for as long as possible.

This could be through winding down (working fewer days in your current post) or stepping down (for example, into a less demanding job on lower pay, but which still makes good use of your skills and experience), phased or flexible retirement or bank and voluntary working after retirement. We'll talk you through the different options available if you are approaching retirement age.

Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust offers competitive salaries which include outer high cost area supplements. 

All our staff, except doctors and dentists (who have their own pay scales), are paid under the Agenda for Change pay system: the national framework which sets out consistent terms and conditions and fair pay scales for all NHS employees.

Under Agenda for Change, each NHS job has a band which indicates the pay scale through which you will progress while in your role. We show the band for each job in all our recruitment advertising.

If you join us from another NHS employer we will place you on the appropriate point on the scale to recognise your current experience. If you join us from an employer outside of the NHS, your manager will be responsible for identifying relevant experience so that you can be placed on the appropriate point on the scale.

Whether you walk, cycle, drive or travel by public transport to work, we help make your journeys easier. We offer interest-free public transport season ticket loans all employees, helping you spread out the costs of your travel to work. 

If driving is essential, e.g. if you are an on-call worker, then you can apply for a car parking permit at some sites.

Free or subsidised classes are available for staff at different sites to help you stay happy and healthy at work. Classes include yoga, mindfulness, tai chi, fitness and pilates.
