Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest Foundation Trusts in the North West that delivers the latest treatment for a broad spectrum of serious and complex conditions, whilst providing local hospital services for the population of Central Lancashire.

As a teaching hospital, committed to the development of both clinical and non-clinical staff, opportunities to develop your management and leadership skills and further study are available.

Our aim is to always provide excellent care with compassion to deliver the highest quality of care our patients deserve.  We value the personal skills, experience and qualities that individuals bring to the Trust, creating an inclusive working environment to attract talented people who feel motivated, involved and are able to influence the future direction of our services.

The well-being of staff is important to us.  We have a dedicated Health and Wellbeing team who provide support on a range of topics, run fitness classes and organise mindfulness sessions.  As an employer we have earned a reputation for focusing on the development of our staff and for being an organisation people are proud to work for.

The Catering Services are going through a period of transition which provides an opportunity for the post holder to lead on the implementation and development of the service using the latest technologies and innovative ways of working.

In return we offer you a friendly, supportive environment that is committed to your continuing professional development in one of the largest and highest performing Trusts in the country.

We have achieved the Customer Care Excellence Award as part of Hotel Services family for the third time.  In Catering Services we consistently receive a 5 star EHO rating.  We also fall within the upper quartile for both PLACE and ERIC demonstrating the ability to work to a high standard with efficiency in mind.
