Working at Humber

Positive Assets staff at Humber NHS Foundation Trust 2010 staff award ceremony.

Humber NHS Foundation Trust is based in East Yorkshire, a lovely corner of England that boasts the sweeping, tranquil countryside of the Wolds, colourful seaside resorts with a spectacular coastline, the historic market towns of Beverley, Market Weighton and Driffield together with the 2017 City of Culture, the cosmopolitan economic centre and port of Hull.

Hull's fortune is set to grow after Siemens announced a £310m deal to build a wind turbine factory across Alexandra Dock, in east Hull, and nearby Paull by 2016. With the creation of over 1,000 jobs, this fantastic business deal will bring more investment into the City, adding to Hull's already vibrant and exciting future.

The River Humber provides a natural boundary between the East Riding of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, but with the completion of the Humber Bridge in 1981, stronger links have been formed between the two parts of the area.

Humber NHS Foundation Trust covers a geographical area of more than 1000 square miles and a population of almost 600,000 living in urban, rural and coastal areas.

Hull is an ancient Borough of considerable interest. It has a population of 263,900 and is the largest city within the surrounding area.  It is also an industrial town and established Port, with a large variety of associated industries.  The City was extensively rebuilt after heavy bombing in World War II and is, therefore, a modern as well as an historic City.  In the late 1980’s the City Centre was drastically altered and improved by large-scale pedestrianisation.  In 1983 the Marina first opened, attracting new developments to the quayside.  There are almost 299 berths in Humber Dock and 120 in Railway Dock.

The East Riding of Yorkshire has a population of approximately 335,000 and covers a vast geographical area, comprising of market towns; Beverley, Market Weighton, Pocklington and Driffield. Additionally the boundaries include the coastal towns of the East Yorkshire Coast from Flamborough to Hornsea, including the large seaside resort of Bridlington and the town of Goole.

There are first class educational facilities, which include private schools for secondary education, and Hull Trinity House Academy. Hull has two Universities; the University of Hull (which has campuses in Hull and in Scarborough), and the University of Lincoln (with campuses in Hull and Lincoln), and which incorporates Faculties of Business and Management, Art and Technology, Social and Life Sciences, and others.

There is a regular direct inter-city rail link with London (two and a half hours) and other major cities and the M62 and M18 provide fast road communication with West Yorkshire, Lancashire and the Midlands.  There is easy access to nearby pleasant countryside, dales, moors and first class coastal resorts.  Hull also offers car ferry links to Belgium and Holland and Humberside International Airport, on the south bank of the Humber, provides internal UK and international flights.
