Welcome and Information for New Staff

Joining the Belfast Trust

New employees to the Trust will start on the first Monday of every month, except where this falls on a bank holiday*.

The list below outlines the dates for 2019/20.

On your first day you will attend a Welcome Event at Girdwood Community Hub in North Belfast. Here you will be introduced to the Trust vision, values and culture.

At this event you will complete important 'day one' training, preparing you for your new role.


Trust Values

Belfast HSC Trust values were developed through extensive engagement with patients, clients and staff. These values are important and reflect the principles by which we should work, guiding our attitudes and behaviour, the decisions that we make and what we expect of one another. We are committed to “living our values” and are recognisable as employees of the BHSCT irrespective of the circumstances in our individual displays of the behaviours which are identified here.

Information you will find in this Welcome Section

Once you start your new job you will find lots of information for new staff on our intranet hub but until then we wanted to help you get prepared and find your feet by providing you with some early information on this welcome and information site.
