Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals
Simon Nearney, Director of Workforce at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust says:
“As one of the region’s largest employers, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust will always need people
with the right skills and qualifications to provide care to our patients.
The Academy is a really exciting opportunity for us to help develop the skills of young people and encourage
them into healthcare careers within our local community. From surgeons and scientists right through to nurses,
therapists and theatre staff, those careers come in many different forms. We want to show just how exciting and
rewarding roles in the NHS can be, and offer valuable work experience to prepare young people for the workplace or
By nurturing the talent we already have here in Hull, this will help us to continue providing the high quality care which
local people expect and deserve”.
City Health Care Partnership CIC
The MHSC Academy at St. Mary’s is a great and exciting development for the area, allowing local students to develop
key skills, abilities and attitudes that we require to be able to deliver high quality health and care services now and
especially in the future.
The range of exciting career opportunities that are available within the multitude of organisations that provide such
services is vast (I am a living example of such) and I am confident that the academy will add to our collective keen
interest to see the next generation of folks filling these posts being drawn from our local communities which can only be a
positive win/win from many an angle.

Humber Foundation Trust
As a local NHS provider of mental health, children’s services, learning disability and community services, we experience
recruitment challenges first hand and know exactly how difficult it is to find people with the right skills and
experience at the right time. Every year we employ about 300 new staff covering a huge range of clinical, care and
support roles including consultants, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
That’s why we are committed to developing clinical leaders of the future here in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. It
is a huge part of our workforce planning. The NHS offers a huge range of exciting and challenging
opportunities for people who are passionate about making a difference. These opportunities are there for the taking
for local young people and in collaboration with our health colleagues and St Mary’s College, we are excited about what
we can achieve together.
