New colleagues can look forward to a warm welcome here at Tameside & Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust. Following our recent staff survey, our staff have confirmed that they look forward to going to work and they are enthusiastic about their jobs.
We scored higher than the average on these questions and are proud that our staff are happy to be part of #TeamTameside

We are an Acute and Community Trust based between the Pennines and Manchester City Centre. We employ almost 4,000 staff across Tameside & Glossop. We offer a competitive benefits package with regular pay awards, annual leave of 27 days increasing to 33 days after 10 years and access to a competitive Pension Scheme to which both you and the Trust contribute.
