Signing of the armed forces covenant

We are proud to employ and actively seek to support staff who also serve in the Reserve Forces.

Through the Ministry of Defence’s Career Transition Partnership and NHS Employer’s own ‘Step into Health’ programme, we actively seek to encourage and support armed forces people to consider United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust when they transition from the military into civilian employment.

We welcome job applications from the Armed Forces community, including military spouses, and are committed to providing a supportive environment throughout your career with us.
