Working at the cutting-edge of healthcare isn’t the only benefit you can expect from a career at HCA Hospitals. From the little things like employee discounts and flexible annual leave to the big things like pensions and private healthcare provision, we offer a diverse range of lifestyle, health and personal benefits to thank our people for the invaluable contribution they make every day.
And because we know every employee is different, we give our people full flexibility in deciding which benefits they receive, ensuring they’re looked after at every key stage of their life, from starting a family to preparing for retirement.
Learning & Development
It’s not just our facilities, treatments and technology we want to keep at the forefront. It’s our people too. We invest heavily every year in opportunities for our staff’s professional learning and development. Whether it’s enrolling on a leadership course, attending seminars and talks, or simply being one of the first in the UK to utilise new equipment and treatments, you can be sure that your knowledge will continue to advance alongside industry innovations.
Mixing traditional classroom learning, on the job training and online solutions, ours is a blended development experience tailored to your specific needs; no matter your area of expertise, or the stage at which you are in your career. And to ensure that you can give your all, we offer paid leave to all those who wish to undertake further study.
