The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust (RD&E) provides Acute and Community services across Exeter and East Devon serving a population of more than 450,000 people. In our latest CQC full inspection of our services, the RD&E received an overall rating of “good”. We were rated as “outstanding” for our Emergency and Critical Care services, and for Caring Trustwide.
The Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust has been ranked as the joint best performing non-specialist Trust in the country for overall patient experience of care in the 2016 Care Quality Commission (CQC) Adult Inpatient Survey.
The main hospital site is in the historical Cathedral city of Exeter that has abundant family amenities and beautiful surrounding countryside. It is situated in the middle of the South West Region with easy access to the countryside and coast of Devon and Cornwall. It is well served by rail, road and air links. Good educational facilities such as the University of Exeter and good Ofsted rated schools are available locally. Our Community sites are equally well positioned and are a good place to work.
Enjoy a good quality of life in the South West and be part of our caring workforce.
Our vision is to become a centre of excellence and support fellow organisations in the development of people across health and social care.
The RD&E is already one of the leading South West organisations for apprenticeships. In February 2019, at the Exeter College Employer and Apprentice Awards, we won the Outstanding Contribution to Apprenticeships category. In June 2019, at the Exeter Business Awards we were runner-up in the Apprenticeship Employer of the Year category, with specific reference made to the work we have done in utilising the levy to provide development opportunities for new starters, upskilling of existing staff and recruitment of hard to fill roles.
We are now embarking on our journey to be a ‘full provider’ to support recruitment, career ladders and retention of our people.
Our Talent & Learning Team now need an “apprenticeship guru” who can take the responsibility of managing and navigating this very important journey for us. The successful candidate must have up to date knowledge of setting up and running a successful apprenticeship provider organisation. You will be a person who is able to build strong relationships across teams, build trust quickly, influence key stakeholders and look at how we can do things differently to support recruiting new talent, growing our own and building visible career ladders.
Your main focus will be to take responsibility for the management, development, commissioning and implementation of apprenticeship and associated qualifications ensuring we meet the needs of the Trust and awarding organisational requirements.
You will also hold responsibility for the creation of talent pipelines & career ladders through our work experience programmes, internships, graduate programmes and supporting the wider Talent, Learning & Development agenda when needed which includes induction, leadership and management development, appraisal development, coaching and statutory and mandatory training.
Our vision is to provide safe, high quality seamless services delivered with courtesy and respect. To achieve our vision we expect all our staff to uphold our Trust values. Our Trust values are:
Honesty, Openness & Integrity
Inclusion & Collaboration
Respect & Dignity
***Preference will be given to staff with ‘Priority’ and 'At Risk' status including NHS At Risk staff throughout Devon.***
