Flexibility with approach to management and employee relations, encouragement of BAME culture, work is variable, and environments are quite relaxed - many work sites have good travel routes
Reasonable approach to work and very supportive
Educational level of some staff still requires greater development
The managers have no experience of what they are doing, majority of their staff are of BME background. Though their logo has inclusion added to it but in reality they have no idea what it meant. It is about tick boxes and when you made a formal written complaints, it is swept under the carpet, most of them have their issues with ethnic minority and get treated like they do not matter, most of their nurses have left because they felt under valued and the disrespected.
Hard working backgroud staff
Their managers had no clue and they are mainly white, they have no working ethics and talk down to the field workers.
Good team and collaborative working pattern. The most rewarding was going home knowing that i have done the best to I could to support the patients and their relatives was always rewarding. I felt i did not have enough work / life balance at that time, but i am hopeful things have changed since then.
Management do not care about staff and staff are overworked and if you speak out they find a way to get rid of you . No training and of you are not qualified staff there is no way to advance your career
long hours and low pay and blame culture
overall i have loved my experience at east london foundation trust. a typical work day is spent out on appointments to patients and then returning to the office to write my notes. i am confident that if i feel as though i need advice on one of my patients i can ask a member of my team. we work collaboratively a lot of the time. the most enjoyable part of my job is feeling like i am making a difference to the lives of children and families.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

It has been an amazing experience to have worked there for 6 years - fast paced at times slightly stressful but regarding environment. Through experience working with patients with complex needs and backgrounds, I have an excellent understanding of how to collaborate and communicate with people to determine and distinguish their individual requirements.
This was such a good company to work for. There was the odd person who was a bully or not particularly easy to get on with, but mostly it was like one big family. It was a good balance of fun and professional. They invest well in staff CPD. There was very good quality training. They were also supportive of personal CPD days.
A voluntary post, and very enjoyable job . Interesting, motivating and encouraging. Management and culture are excellent and lots were thoughts , though a bit stressful at times due to various working patterns of different work environments them covered. Enjoyable because you meet with different people.
My personal experience is that since I'm not a qualified nurse and working in the field, a lot of times most of the work will be given to me. However, I'm not paid according to my efforts and also my shifts will usually be the last to be allocated (e.g. I am never given my shifts for the month later until 2 weeks before). The ward I worked in had a very chaotic management so I was never able to find my supervisor. However, the staff in the admin teams are always very helpful and patient. 10/10 for them.
The fact that ELFT is rated outstanding by the CQC is often shovelled down your throat when you start. I worked (bringing with me 20 years of experience) in acute inpatient settings across three ELFT sites. Yes the overall rating was outstanding but the rating for inpatient was good - and much needs to be done to acknowledge this and improve. However, I formed close working relationships with all clinical staff on the different wards I worked on ... but they are stretched. Very stretched but yet very caring. Much emphasis was placed on cquin targets, understandably, but sometimes more focus on complex patients were needed above and beyond the ticking of cquin targets. I found my department very resistant to even the smallest change. Low staff morale. I didn’t feel my expertise or experience was valued by my department. I will not be looking for a substantive post within this Trust.
Wonderful caring clinical staff on the wards
Terrible treatment when overpayment was made by bank
Working for ELFT is beneficial in many ways - you will be surrounded by like-minded, driven individuals eager to meet targets and deadlines whilst boasting with commitment and enthusiasm. Its an environment where you are greatly supported and career growth is realistic.
No two days are the same
