Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) provides inpatient and community-based mental health care for people living in Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES), Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire. We also provide specialist services extending throughout the south west.

We employ over 4,000 dedicated members of staff who deliver services from more than 90 locations, working in approximately 150 teams across a geographical region of 2,200 miles, for a population of approximately 1.8million people.

We are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing. We strive to use the expertise and resources within our organisation, and through our partnerships, to deliver high quality services that are safe and focused on people's recovery. Our staff are pivotal in everything we do and we are committed to involving them fully in the development of the Trust and our services.


An exciting opportunity has arisen to apply for a position on our all new Student Bank. We have designed the Student Bank to support Students through the banding system which will enable them to access a wider variety of bank assignments and as such enhance their experiences, skill and knowledge base in preparation for qualification.

It will also provide an opportunity to determine which service you may wish to begin your professional career in.

The Student Bank is available for anyone studying any course that is related to Health and Social care and so we are hoping to develop a full multi-disciplinary team within AWP Temporary Staffing.

Dependent on the course you are studying, the stage you are in your studies combined with any previous relevant experience you may have will determine what bands will be made available to you. It is therefore important you outline this clearly in your application. Exact pay point will be advised following interview and will be commensurate with experience and skills.

We have a designated team of Clinicians to initiate this process and support all student bank workers in the clinical environment.

The AWP Temporary Staffing team are committed to developing a team of workers which provide a standard of service at the highest quality and as such have designed this bespoke Student Bank to support us in reaching our Goal. We are a forward thinking team with a clear vision of which direction we want AWP Temporary staffing to head and the development of the Student Bank is pivotal to achieving this.

Naturally, any Student Bank worker with AWP Temporary Staffing team will have full access to all the benefits available within Temporary Staffing to include:

- Flexibility in working hours
- A wide variety of assignments available within our services
- Local assignments available at all times
- NHS Pension
- Weekly Pay
