From fixing dripping taps to creating multi-million-pound health facilities, there is never a dull moment at Solent NHS Estates and Facilities.

Our dynamic team of over 300 people can provide everything needed to design, equip, run and maintain any healthcare building.

We have talented architects who create state-of-the-art buildings and refurbishments, working closely with clinical teams to transform the way healthcare is delivered across Hampshire.

We have a dedicated team of skilled maintenance experts who work quietly behind the scenes to keep our hospitals and health buildings running safely and effectively.

We have specialists in premises management, medical equipment, IT, cleaning, catering security, and everything in between.

In short, Solent NHS Estates and Facilities is a pretty special bunch of people, who together deliver outstanding results.

And the team is fast becoming known as the leader in its field.

Mark Young, Deputy Director of Estates and Facilities, said: “While our work is primarily concerned with buildings, we are very much an industry of people.

“It is the staff within our team who determine its success, and through their passion, commitment and drive, we are repeatedly exceeding every target.”

In return, we offer flexible working, excellent training opportunities and bags of support from a highly experienced and very friendly team.

So if you think you have what it takes to join a team of professionals who are really going places, we want to hear from you.


A word from some of our apprentices


Kaylee White, Estates Project Apprentice, said: “Being an apprentice is a  brilliant experience. I have had so much support from my manager, mentor and the wider team. Usually, I am juggling five or six projects at a time and get to be on-site a lot, which I love.

“I went from a job where I knew everything to a job where I knew nothing – but I am 100% glad I did.”


Ollie Adams, Apprentice Assistant Premise Manager, said: “Being an apprentice is so enjoyable as every day is different.

“I applied as I wanted a career and this way you are getting paid to learn, plus there are so many people in the team with loads of experience who you can turn to if you get stuck.”


Carol Palfrey,  Admin Office Manager/PA for our Maintenance team, said: “An apprenticeship opens your eyes to the rest of the Trust. I’ve had to do lots of research about values, policies and systems and it’s really interesting to see how your department fits into the organisation.”
