Fast Paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced environment. Community work so you see different clients everyday sometimes. Sometimes long shifts, depending on where you are. Can be mentally exhausting, depending on how you handle the days. Sometimes you’re with a child that needs minimal support, sometimes you’re with a child that needs maximum support.

Pros

Training, some lovely coworkers, different everyday.

Cons

Sometimes a lot of travel depending where you’re based, long hours.

Hard work!

Lots expected for the pay grade. Underfunded, overworked and difficult to progress. Most colleagues are lovely and the patients are generally great but senior management and funding is tricky.

Constantly under staffed

You have to fight to get the job then spend the rest fighting to keep it.. management constantly tell lies.. say one thing and then forget about it. Constantly getting reported from staff it’s like being in junior school and managed by children

Pros

Having good conversation with patients

Cons

Don’t trust anyone who works with you

Share your experience to help others

Stressful environment at times. Nurses are expected to do their job plus every job that someone hands over.

Lots of staff burn out due to staff shortages. Sometimes feel you are working the job of 2 or more people. Lovely patients keep staff turning up for shifts each day.

Pros

The patients Team Everyone wants the best for their patients

Cons

Stressful environment at times No reflection time after traumatic incidents

Pros

Flex hours

You are just a number.

Nothing nice to say. Very institutionalised and cliquey. Management never listens to the staff. Always follow hearsay without any facts. Always take the word of patients over staff. Short breaks. Staff struggling. Understaffed and underpaid

Pros

No. Nothing nice to say.

Cons

Long hours, no thanks. You are just a number.

large trust but feels like a small trust

-Many people in the trust have work around the trust so know each other.-the training facilities are good however could be better in regards to providing online training-often short staffed -option to join the Bank team to pickup extra shifts across the trust , however places tend to have their favourites -flexible working arrangements possible if you have a strong reason and supportive manager-mental health nursing apprenticeships available- monthly supervisions and yearly PDR's- rapid changes in services can mean job insecurity and low staff morale across the board.- management staff tends to change a lot-some management have been in the trust for years and can feel like old pals helping each other rather than doing what's fair for the employees - Can feel old school at times, however they are trying their best to improve with new management and staff network groups to improve inclusively -Good IT system and more modern compared to other nearby NHS trusts

Pros

flexible working arrangements, lots of extra hours available on bank

Cons

high turnover of management, lots of changes in short periods of time

eSystems Management

My role involves the management of systems, projects and staff. Having now worked for the eSystems department for over two year’s it’s safe to say I won’t be looking for a new job anytime soon!Working with an excellent leader, combined with an ambitious and highly motivated team, in a supportive and collaborative environment, have allowed me to thrive in my role. I look forward to developing my skill set further. I feel supported, appreciated and valued as a member of the eSystems team, and have a great working relationship with my manager, who always has the teams best interests in mind. I highly recommend SCH and have thoroughly enjoyed my journey so far in eSystems.

Pros

Management, challenges and team ethic

Ok place to work

Clinical support worker The job itself is ok when you’re working with a good team. when working on the wards you are rushed off your feet running round after patients and sometimes other staff not pulling their weight. Not the easiest job to do every patient is different and some with challenging behaviour (one patients was hitting staff, other patients and visitors). It takes its toll after a while. The work life balance is good if you can commit to the long hours but the night shifts are terrible for me

Pros

Good work life balance if you can do long days/nights, fairly decent pay for overtime and enhancements

Cons

Nights, only half hour lunch break for a 12.5 hour shift

Awfully run

Bad IT equipment, horrible culture, had a backlog of work and didn't have much of a clue in how to reduce it. No overall plan and different people did jobs in different ways

difficult workplace

Difficult workplace to work, if you weren't part of a clique it was very difficult to work in and management has their favourites. It was hard to discuss work issues with managers and any issues in general

Great place and brilliant people to work with

This was my first and only job for the NHS and I must say some truly brilliant people work for the NHS,from cleaners to consultants. I would thoroughly recommend working at The Children's Hospital

great job satisfaction

Great job satisfaction and rate of pay - always put you through your own personal development and allow you to grow your career how you want to grow it.

Great job, badly managed

Ambulance work takes a special type of person, but YAS don't appreciate and support their hard working dedicated staff. On the other hand, many employed by YAS should have been let go years ago, managers in particular can fail in their task and be side-stepped instead of sacked.
