The bullying culture at the Trust HQ is the worst I have ever seen, one of the Executive Directors was stripped of her title due to bullying complaints, but went on to continue her behaviour under the Acting CEO and the new CEO, without question. Many complaints were made against her, but these got shoved in a drawer. The Trust HQ secretarial staff were not to be trusted, nearly every new PA leaves within 6 months or goes on long term stress leave. Such a shame that the culture is from the top down, as there are some great and professional people working here, just let down from the top. The board are aware, but do nothing.
Some nice people
Bullying from Trust HQ
A good place to work but after 25 years I'm ready for less hours and a change of job. A typical day would start at 7.00am to pick up on early starting staff but some times my working day would not finish until 8.00pm. The hardest part of my job was trying to get hold of staff that needed training updates due to the nature of their busy work schedule. The management is sound and just leave me to get on with my job to the best of my ability. I could speak to them with confidence if there was anything I was unsure of. The most enjoyable part of my job is mixing with different staff in different areas of the Hospital.
Flexible working opportunities
Very busy environment with old office equipment, poor office conditions and limited funding available. Excellent IT training facilities on site, uniform provided, I was not medically trained but determined to be a sucess and with access to a medical dictionary, keen hearing, common sense, enthusiasm, sheer hard work and resolve I was. The Consultants were troopers and all staff hard working.
On site restaurant
Poor standard of equipment i.e. old dictaphones.

It is a very busy and on the go position. There is no let up it is busy constantly which I enjoy. I have learnt a lot of new systems on computer such as IPM, ICE, Evolve, Galaxy. My co-workers are helpful and we all get on very well, helping each other out and being a source for feedback, sounding boards etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is the different and varied jobs that transpire as each day goes on and therefore you could never get bored.
Varied work load, hours that suit, prioritising your own workload
very hectic at times, frustration when theatres are cancelled especially at short notice
I worked within the HR department and have never experienced a worse working environment in my career. Zero training or engagement from any management. On day one I was shown to a grotty desk and broken chair and told where the toilet was (I can only assume that that was my induction). Managers who seem to spend most of their time hiding behind their office doors and occasionally darting into the central kitchen avoiding eye contact with any of the team. Turnover is high and the environment is miserable, windows covered up, dirty desks and yellowing memos on notice boards that I imagine have been there 700 years and never read. Project Managers who struggle to communicate, maintain eye contact or conduct a meeting in time or with any purpose. Your opinion will never be requested and your feedback will fall on deaf ears. One week my only task was to 'just read over last week's emails'. It was a huge relief to leave, think very carefully before considering the BTHT HR department as an option.
No colleague engagement, no defined roles, no communication
My experience at Bradford has been very positive. Bradford emphasizes a lot on communication at a level I have never seen in another trust before. I definitely learned how communication aided the project from day one. Management has a very positive attitude towards the project i was involved in. I was made a team player at every step of the project. As a senior analyst i enjoyed working with secondment staff in the project. I was able to train and assist my colleagues at work using my experience. The hardest part of the job was to engage with stakeholders who had a big challenge on their hand due to shortage of staff. this meant they could not attend some of the sessions we organised once a week. The way i got around this was to take the sessions to them on the ward. I enjoyed engaging with staff e.g doctors, nurses and others. I felt comfortable with this part of the job as i used to be a nurse myself.
exciting project to be part of
long distance from home
Employed as an apprentice and upon successful completion, recruited as a Multi-skilled Maintenance Technician. Work consists of maintaining electrical, mechanical and plumbing services to the Hospital buildings, grounds and gardens all of which are to a very high standard. Communication to patients, Hospital staff and Colleagues is essential. Above all of this, health and safety is paramount due to the nature of the environment. Other duties include assisting and training Apprentices, supervising Assistants and undertaking Shift cover for periods of up to 3 months. Shift cover consisted of Night and Weekend shifts where there was no other member of the team on site.
It is rotating shift day & night. I learned a lot in this unit professionally. Management is flexible most of the time.We have a good teamwork in the unit though its busy.ICU is a heavy unit & unpredictable but because of the good working relationship between staffs the workload became lighter.It is a multicultural hospital the hardest part of the job is miscommunication especially when there is no interpreter for the patient(unable to speak english),it is frustrating. And dealing with bereaving family. I enjoyed working in this unit.
long breaks, flexible hours
