Staff are the lifeblood of Spectrum ; their tireless dedication to our services and commitment to delivering care which is in line with our compassionate ethos is at the heart of everything they achieve.

Here is what some of our employees say about working at Spectrum:

“One of the best things about working for Spectrum is being supported to innovate – even if things don’t always succeed, there’s always valuable learning we can take away and share with others.”

Stella Hannaway, Head of Transformation, HMP LIverpool

“You’re working with people who may be marginalised in society and helping to give them a voice. There’s a lot of stigma around drug users and people are often labelled which means they can’t move on. At Spectrum we give everyone a chance to receive the healthcare they’re entitled to.”

Andy Pearson, Drug and Alcohol Partnership Manager

“Everyone is made to feel valued in Spectrum. You’re encouraged to extend your learning and further yourself if it will help you in your role.

“I just love the job! I love working part of a team which is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of patients. If I just get one of the women I support to come in for contraceptive advice, that’s very rewarding for me.”

Elaine Gallagher, Sex Worker Outreach Programme lead
