This job is a secure job but very hard working, wage isnt that good specially for the work you are asked to do for your wage. There is progression should u choose.

Complex Organisation
I accept this is a blanket review of a huge complex organisation - my advice would be to pick your NHS employer wisely as they’re not all the same, some are fantastic and are truly quality driven with patients and staff being at the centre of all they do. Unfortunately here in Kent where the health agenda has become confused, Pockets of NHS Employers that bully and reward that bad behaviour are still in existence, and it’s very much a rule of ‘if your face fits.’

Varied role with opportunities
As a bank HCA, I can and have worked in most departments. Majority of people are hardworking and friendly/happy to help. Wards are often understaffed but everyone tries their best. I can pick and choose the shifts and areas I want to work in and can network alongside other professionals for career progression

Reliable, not exciting
Nice people, joined as a temp. Not much progression, but good work life balance. Fairly good salaries if you become permanent. Not very exciting culture.
