Nil too much to explain. No career progression, work till you drop. No equal share of responsibilities. Some technician have way too many responsibilities compared to some other offsite technician.

Too many to even begin

Productive and extremely busy Team

Never had a problem with shifts as there were plenty on offer, you could work everyday if you wished because the teams were so busy. The work is hard, you have to be skilled, dedicated in learning but support and training is generously given. I enjoyed my time with the team and was offered a permanent place after 6 months.

Pros

Plenty of support

Terrible!

Worst place I have ever worked in my 8 years of nursing. The Trust is run by patients who take advantage and abuse the services. Staff work so hard; doctors, nurses, consultants, OTs and with no appreciation or recognition. Though I have learnt a lot, this is mostly from the amazing team I have had the priviledge of working with. They have been brilliant and absolute stars. The working relationship between everyone on our team is extremely positive and uplifting. However, upper management do not support staff whatsoever. They would bend over backwards for a patient but toss staff to the curb like dirt. I have requested for support after developing depression (from my work environment) but was basically told by OH to look for another job if mine has proven too difficult to do. The job will change you as an individual and not in a good way. If you enjoy your nursing career then I suggest you go elswhere. This place has made me want to permanently leave the NHS.

No go area

Educational opportunities are available. Bullying culture and nothing is being done by management to deal with that. The environment is not a good place to work, only 5months in one of the centres and I nearly lost my mind. I was so much stressed out and pressed on the corner. I will not like even my worst enemy to be in that environment.

Core Values

The core values for the Trust provides a favorable group to work for. Following the planned weekly administrative schedule files and documents were expected to be coordinated and managed to fulfill facilitators expectations. The hardest part of the job for me was multi-tasking whilst completing audio tapes and manning the telephone calls when I was the sole member of the admin staff in the office.

A great place to grow and develop, hard work but fun!

Working with CNWL you will face multiple challenges and really sharpen your abilities. Great organisation in terms of how it treats its staff, very people oriented, encourages development and growth. The senior management encourage a fair and equitable working ethos. If you are a person who can get along well with others and go the extra mile, you'll love it.

Pros

Great working atmosphere

Cons

Occasionally long hours

Good working relationship.

Check my desk and Computer to see if there is any message. if there is, most important comes first before the others. Then, followed by day-to-day activities at work. Then follow my manager instruction concerning work activities. Forming a good working relationship with anybody around by making self accessible to them, being friendly to them, and having a good rapport with them.

Productive and Fun Workplace

Work is really good and employees are very good. A typical day at work can be quite challenging but it has its rewards. Co-workers are highly professional and the hardest part of the job is getting to grips with learning new systems. The most enjoyable part of the job is that the job is quite interesting.

Pros

Free Lunches

Cons

Long Hours

My experience with CNWL

I joined CNWL when they merged with Harrow & Hillingdon in early 2000's. Prior to this I had become disillusioned with nursing in the UK, I felt it had become too political and lost sight of patient care. Since coming under the umbrella of CNWL - my faith in nursing was restored and I am delighted to say that I genuinely never looked back. I have met some really wonderful people throughout my time there and it was with mixed feelings that I had to leave for personal reasons. The experience I gained in the different roles undertaken can only hold me in good stead for my future. As in all walks of life - no one can get on with everyone but the majority of people were lovely. The hardest part of any job is the amount of pressure to do your best but if you have a good work ethic, good organisational skills and colleagues to support you - then the job should not cause you too much stress.
