They will find a way to take you out. I witnessed this happen around me.and low and behold the day came for me to be accused of something I hadn't done. They do this alot, it destroys peoples lives. They financially compensate with public money.
Poor workplace in main administrative building in spite of refurbishment. Work content and satisfaction can be variable depending on line manager and department you are working in. Still some evidence of 'old fashioned' task-focussed management amongst the more modern leaders.
I work in a good team with good and friendly people. Most will stop and chat briefly which makes the day go better. I have a good boss who listens. My job is only temporary and it can be tedious. For me the hardest part is now working non-clinical when I have had so many years clinical.
Good people to work for
Job can be tedious

I worked for Trust Temps, the admin temp bank. On the plus side they kept me pretty well employed but on the downside the pay scale for admin staff was really low. I worked in Sentinel House which was not the friendliest place. Bit of a strange culture and hard to think of any perks apart from free parking (which is a massive advantage, to be fair).
Unfriendly environment, some of the work I was given was more suited to a school leaver needing a bit of experience.
Don’t do this job if your an experienced carer. Most of staff friendly a few let the trust down . Not much thought gone into role you need rehab skills as well as care skills, hard to keep everyone happy . Lack of support from managers.
Some friendly staff
New role not thought out
I have been working as a 1st level technician on the IT service desk at Dorset Healthcare for two years. I have learned so much in this job and have generally been very happy. It is a good entry level job but it is difficult to progress due to a lack of vacancies. It's really a shame because I would love to stay in this organisation but there are just no 2nd line vacancies and 1st line becomes very monotonous after a while. If you are looking to apply for this job the thing they value the most is customer service. Plenty of us had no experience in IT and were able to learn on the job so do not let that put you off.
This has really been helpful to me building a CV. From being in work last 17 years been exciting knowing and how to build this up after all this time. Thankyou so much
Managers are Stressed and some uncaring and do not support staff all they are concerned about are rating and looking good for the CQC and not patient staff caring Staff at ground level are caring hard working and very supportive of each other and are often under pressure to meet targets and deal with difficult clients and often go above and beyond often and getting no thanks for what they do
Colleges support pay pensions
Not feeling support or valued and will dismiss you at a drop of a hat
I love my job but I am aware and can feel the strains on the NHS and in particular CAMHS. My team are amazing at their jobs and very supportive and the clients that are in the system receive great care but unfortunately the waiting times are so long that people loose faith before they begin treatment.
