PA to Director in Steeton
Varied work day which covered more than being the Directors PA.
Learned about the car parking process and booking accommodation for staff.
Management is varied from hard nosed to too soft and you felt that you could not trust or confide in them.
Culture within the team was one of being collaborative but within the wider team treated as the "goofer" for everything.
Hardest part of the role was learning on the job whilst trying to juggle all the areas and keeping everything running.
Most enjoyable part were the people, they were kind and helpful but everyone is stressed because they are having to do 2/3 peoples jobs.

a good learning experience
Very good place to work and learn skills and new people of all walks of life, a chance to gain knowledge and new experiences able to work in different enviroments.
Lovely people, frustrating environment
This is a good place to work, with friendly, supportive colleagues. However, management fail to make best use of the people they have around them, and continually recruit new temporary staff to provide specific skills which, if they took a moment to look, already exist within the team. This leads to lack of opportunities for existing staff to use their skills and experience, and to further develop in their (medium-term but temporary) role. It seems that if you are recruited to a certain band, then you are deemed to only ever be capable of performing at this level, and are constantly overlooked when opportunities arise, as these are advertised via agency to external candidates, and the first you know about the opportunity is when a new colleague starts.

Great friendly atmosphere
I have worked at the trust for almost 3 years now and can honestly say that I never worked anywhere better. I have worked in two other local hospitals previous to this one so I have something to compare to. The staff are very friendly and encouraging and it has a homely feel. I have been given opportunities to further my career within my department and funding for training is always available. Management are fair and approachable. Employee Health and Wellbeing are always on hand to help with any problems you may have with work/home life.
Pharmacist and lecturer in Keighley, Bradford
Both the university and the hospital were very busy, but were a very satisfying career
Very busy discharging patients from hospital with the correct medication they need to have at home.
I managed the pre registration pharmacy students and signed off their fitness to practice as a newly qualified pharmacist.
Seeing students move from being a 1st year student to a 5th year ready to be registered with the GPHC is a very satisfying achievement
The workplace culture was committed to giving care to all patients and relatives
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing patients who had been gravely ill recover and go home
