Salary and Pension

We offer competitive rates of pay and our reward and recognition systems operate in a fair, transparent and objective way. Our pay scales include incremental progression (where your salary increases progressively through the salary steps within your grade).

As soon as you start with us, you’ll automatically enrol with the NHS Pension Scheme if eligible. This is a defined benefit scheme and is not dependent on investment returns. If you are not eligible to join the NHS Pension Scheme, we will make sure to provide an alternative.

Annual leave

We know there’s more to life than working, and we actively encourage our employees to make the most of their holiday allowances. We have a generous entitlement of 27 days per year, rising after 5 then 10 years’ service. Leave is pro-rata for part-time workers, and if you’ve been employed by the NHS before joining NHSBT, your previous service is counted towards your higher leave entitlement.

Training and career development

Shine: Passport to Development is our learning and development strategy – the wide variety of ways we are supporting staff to shine and excel in their roles.
Learning and development is open to all employees at every level, regardless of role. Our experts located across the country will help you with your professional development needs either individually or for your team.

Work/life balance

We are committed to creating an environment where you can genuinely balance your working and home lives. We know that traditional work patterns don’t suit everybody and that an individual’s needs vary greatly over the course of a career.

We aim to be as flexible as possible, considering options that include variable hours and part-time working. We also provide assistance with childcare vouchers and carer support as well as our Employee Assistance Programme, which provides 24-hour independent information and emotional support.


We work hard to make sure we have an inclusive, caring workforce that really values and respects difference across our organisation. We are committed to maintaining a supportive environment and treating people solely on the basis of their abilities and potential.

Health service discounts

As an NHS employee, you will be entitled to discounts on a wide range of products and services, from high street retailers / on-line shopping sites.
Membership is free, and only requires registering through Health Service Discounts.

Lease car policy

We have a lease car policy for employees that regularly use a car to travel for business purposes. Your recruiting manager will provide you with more information if this applies to you.
