Getting started with us

We look forward to welcoming you to Belfast Trust. We will do our best to help you settle in as quickly as possible.

Every role within our organisation makes an important contribution to the patient experience. We hope you find the following information useful as you start your new job with us.

Welcome Event logoYour first day

On your first day, you will join us at the staff welcome event held in the Girdwood Community Hub.

This event is a great way to meet new colleagues, get information and see how our organisation is structured.

During the welcome event, you will complete some statutory training and meet a number of people who will explain the benefits of working for Belfast Trust.

After day one

If you are a nurse joining Belfast Trust, you will get further training after the welcome event. You will receive an email with details of this training. You should receive the email before you attend the welcome event.

If you are joining us in another role, you will get a local induction in your department.

All new staff get a local induction in their ward or department when they start their new job. Your induction will include:

  • an introduction to your team
  • any training you need to get started
  • information on policies and procedures relevant to your role
  • information on your responsibilities as a member of staff
