Why work with us here at the NHC?

We are Member Focused.

We are Collaborative.

We are Innovative.

We Make a Difference.

We are a small but dynamic organisation.  We are a staff team of 34, and every member of our staff has a unique and important role in our organisation.  We’re passionate about supporting your training and development.

Our workstyle is modern – our office base is a collaborative hub in Sunderland City Centre -however we do have staff who live across the North of England.  We recognise that different people work best in different ways.  You can choose to work in the hub as and when you want, or you can work from home.

We don’t work in silos; we have established systems of communicating virtually that keep everyone in touch while keeping staff safe. Yet, we also value getting together face to face when we can and on a regular basis, both in smaller teams and as a full staff team. You will work with your line manager to establish what works best for you and those you work with.

You will be able to work flexibly, for example to fit in a long lunch time walk or gym class or start and finish early so you can pick up the kids from school.  For us, it’s the outputs that count not the minutes clocked.

We look after our staff mental health and wellbeing and we support and celebrate each other in our achievements. We have a staff wellbeing group where everybody’s view counts.  We have accredited staff mental health first aiders and have recently trained all our line managers in mental health awareness.  We organise social events – in person and online.  You can opt-in or opt-out.

We are a great place to work and if you think that this all fits your ethos then we hope you will join our team and think so too.
