From registered general nurses to mental health practitioners, learning disability nurses and health care assistants, psychologists and medics there are lots of roles for you to choose from in our health and justice services.

With locations in the heart of Manchester or surrounded by the Lancashire countryside there’s a setting for everyone. We have services in Wigan, Warrington, Manchester, Leyland, Rochdale, Wilmslow, Wakefield and St Helens.

If you’re enthusiastic and motivated, then we’d love you to apply for one of our vacancies available across the region.

Come and join us working in a unique environment where every day is different, you have the opportunity to learn in a rich environment and work with some of the most vulnerable people in society.

Why choose us?

We understand the importance of a good work-life balance, positive wellbeing and community spirit. We can offer flexibility, day-to-day diversity and development opportunities to enthusiastic and committed people. We can promise you a fulfilling role, which is varied, challenging and an integral part of the NHS.

Our prison locations offer free on-site car parking, access to subsidised staff restaurants, gym facilities and a better rate of pay than standard nursing roles. Some of our prisons even have farm shops, onsite florists and are situated in scenic settings with deer, ducks and donkeys.

We know that some of our best recruits are referred to us by our own people, so if you know someone who would be a great fit for one of our roles, please share details with them.

Here’s what our staff say:

What do you like most about your career in Health and Justice? What would you say are the best parts of the job?


“My team! We care for each other, have such fun together AND it is a really patient focused supportive atmosphere. The freedom to explore new ideas to progress the service, even the wider multi-disciplinary team are open to new ideas and believe in the social therapeutic processes we encourage.


“The men we work with- the patient/professional relationship is no different here than in the community - we have good strong working relationships with them- we value and believe in them. We feel safe.”


“No two days are the same. The job is varied, and you meet lots of interesting people. It’s not just looking after the "unwell" we have a lot of dealings with the general population of prisoners who would not come under services outside of the prison.”


“Working autonomously has always been a big factor for me. You can make your own decisions but always have someone to ask for advice if you need it. Training is available and everyone gets a fair chance to apply for courses.”

Whether you are newly qualified, returning to practice or part of the NHS/healthcare workforce and looking to relocate, we’d love you to join us!
