Emergency Medical Dispatcher in Gwent
No work/life balance
Loved working for the Welsh ambulance service, but shifts are all over the place, there isn’t really a structured rota. They hound you to work overtime even after 12 hour shifts. It’s so busy you don’t have time to de stress or ask for help because your straight onto the next call.
When you start they tell you all about their “behaviours” but that goes out the window when you start. It’s a very dismissive/toxic environment, it grinds you down as you can never do right.

Luck of the draw
Was told to work from home after 3 days, and was stuck with a manager who came across as impatient when it came to training. The benefits on offer were the best I've seen from any employer, and flexi time is amazing.

No work/life balance.
Nothing but messed around with working hours. It’s ok if you have no life outside of work, no friends, and no family, but if you want to do anything other than feel like you’re on call, this is not the job for you. Management aren’t always on the same page which makes things difficult too.

Great place to work
a relaxed yet challenging place to work. Great commaraderie and mutual respect with a caring and friendly atmosphere. People actually care about each other.
Can be a very busy place to work but the job is rewarding knowing that you are doing your bit to keep the service running

I can firmly say I had a very positive experience working within NHS Human Resource. I felt supported by my colleagues, who also made a typical day enjoyable.
