About Us

We employ over 3,000 staff in a wide range of roles, from front-line patient-care roles including nurses, midwives, doctors, therapists and healthcare assistants, to supporting roles, such as corporate, facilities and estates staff.

The majority of our staff are based at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, although we do operate services at community hospitals in Epping and Bishop’s Stortford, and also provide some community-based services covering the West Essex area.

The town of Harlow is nestled on the doorstep of the picturesque Herts/Essex region – with tranquil countryside within easy reach. The capital itself is equally accessible: Harlow Station is on the main Stansted Express route, with regular fast services to London's Liverpool Street station and Stansted Airport. Furthermore, unlike the majority of major hospital sites across the country, Princess Alexandra Hospital is located within walking distance of the town centre, boasting a multitude of shops and eateries.

Valuing our staff

We are committed to ensuring our staff can perform to the best of their abilities. We provide all staff with a personal development package, which will support them in their current role and prepare them for their next career choice. We also recognise the importance of maintaining an effective work-life balance, and have a number of supporting policies to assist our staff with this.

What we can offer you

Our employees enjoy a range of benefits, including generous annual leave entitlements, membership of the highly-attractive NHS Pension scheme, flexible working arrangements, support with Continuing Professional Development, and various salary sacrifice schemes, such childcare vouchers, bikes and home computers. We have also recently launched our own Staff Lottery.
