The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults.

We are committed to improving mental health and emotional wellbeing, believing that high quality mental health services should be available for all who need them. We bring a distinctive contribution based on the importance we attach to social experience at all stages of people’s lives, and our focus on psychological and developmental approaches to the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of mental ill health

We contribute to the pool of ideas through our own research and development, but are also committed to bringing together the best ideas of the time, old and new, from inside and out, together with the most gifted and able professionals in our fields of endeavour. We aim to share our ideas and practice through as many routes as possible.

As a Trust we aim constantly to be evolving in nature and form in relation to the environment in which we work, to ensure that our contribution remains relevant.


As a member of the Transformation Directorate, the Trustwide Scheduling Officer will support the operational management and configuration of the Trustwide Scheduling system and apply the Trustwide Scheduling policies and procedures implemented across the Trust.  The postholder will:

  • Undertake the activities needed for the generation of the annual Department of Education and Training timetable; 
  • Provide a high quality proactive Scheduling and reactive Booking service to all service users including clinical directorate staff, faculty and students; 
  • Engage in the documentation of evolving clinical pathways and their constraints and transfer into the scheduling system, ensuring consistent provision of appropriate space for all clinical activity taking place within the Trust estate.

The post holder will be expected to work flexibly in accordance with the requirements of this post and over time will become a subject matter expert in scheduling, activity planning and timetable development.
