Working at Day One

By working at Day One you will be helping to deliver compassionate and professional support to people living with the life changing effect of a major traumatic injury.

Having achieved status as a registered charity early in 2021, we are keen to employ exceptional people to join our team and help us achieve our ambitions to offer our holistic model of support to all patients admitted to a Major Trauma Centre across England.

We believe that our people should be highly skilled and share the values and ethos of our organisation, principally to deliver support which is patient-led, collaborative and, above all, caring.

In practice this means you will be able to demonstrate, amongst other things, that you treat people with respect, listen carefully to what they need, work collaboratively as part of a close team and that you are supportive and encouraging to others whether they are patients or team members.

In return we are a welcoming and inclusive employer providing a family friendly and flexible working environment. We are encouraging of everyone regardless of background whilst delivering the best quality service to our clients that we can. We’d like you to feel comfortable with us and to be able to bring your authentic self to work. We really value that. We’d like you to ‘be you’ and will offer you the environment to enable you to do just that.

We welcome applications from people who want to be part of our exciting journey as we strive towards working with new partners across the NHS and attract widespread support for our work.

What we offer

We offer the chance to join an inclusive, innovative and dynamic team, with opportunities for personal and professional development, and a great benefits package including:

  • 25 days annual leave per year, plus Bank Holidays
  • Pension scheme
  • Regular reviews
  • Excellent personal development opportunities
  • Birthday's off
  • Flexible working

"At Day One, we see the longer-term reality for patients"
