Emergency Call Handler in Hellesdon
Stressful, fast-paced but challenging and fulfilling.The role was complicated but an enjoyment to learn about and progress in. You have to pass various assessments and mentoring before you know you're actually a call handler but once you're through all of these barriers and a lot of hard work, you'll really enjoy taking the calls and being challenged as an employee to do your best. The stressful environment got gradually worse over my time here and eventually caused me to leave because it affecting my mental and physical health but if you are someone who is completely un-phased by being constantly neck-deep in stacking calls & stress over a 12 hour period then you'll be a perfect fit. The salary never felt good enough for what and the amount of work you are doing but its better than most jobs.
Little opportunity for development Culture and environment is dependant on your area - Mine was one of the better ones, though even at that it is sometimes clique-ey and gossipy , however on the whole most staff are wonderful people who genuinely love the job.Some managers are great, others seem to go out of their way to make life difficult just to remind you who's in charge. Their excuse as a trust for not offering development opportunities for staff is 'we're busy'... We're always busy!More people would stay if they offered more development opportunities.

Student Paramedic / Paramedic in Essex
I worked here because I had toUnless you can access student finance or self-fund a para degree, there's not many other options to gain HCPC registration other than to try to get on a direct entry SAP programme.Otherwise, the job itself and most of the colleagues is great. The management and their apathy towards mental health (even in 2022) is awful.I wouldn't recommend anyone works here but if you want to work on front line DSAs properly, what other choice do you have?Never regret leaving.
