About bank work
Bank work means that you work on an ‘as and when’ basis with us, as requirements come up across the Trust.

- excellent pay rates
- annual leave accruals
- flexible hours to meet your needs
- paid mandatory training
- and much more.
There are no guaranteed hours with bank work, but we do regularly use bank staff across many of our teams.

What to do if you already work for LPT and want to work extra hours
If the bank role is what you currently do then please talk to your manager in the first instance. They will need to speak to the recruitment team who will advise on what process needs to be followed. If the role you want to join the bank for is completely different role, e.g. you are an administrator in your main role and want to join the bank as an unregistered nurse, you will need to go through an assessment process to confirm your skills for the new bank post. Again talk to your manager in the first instance, and they can liaise with the recruitment team on what process needs to be followed.
