Lovely place and lovely people - don’t pay enough.
I love this job, the people you get to meet and work with are amazing at what they do, the money for the skills you learn and develop in do not project … once you get an ‘upskill’ to a more challenging job it also moves you up a band … however there is a waiting list to get your pay rise and people wait a long time. Which I think is terrible if you are doing a job that pays a band 3 yet you are being paid a band 2 because of the nhs funding.

Appalling management
They often don't respond to requests when wanting help with incorrect pay/ shifts not put on or authorized on the bank. Also when your banding in low (band 2 or 3) you are not listened too. If you try to get promoted - forget it if you are not family or friends with those in power as nepotism is RIFE!!!! Use your time there to get experience and then take your experience elsewhere if you want to build a career.
