Plenty of overtime

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked at Broadmoor as gym instructor, good job when allowed to do it. Unfortunately mostly at weekends staff shortages forced us to the wards working as HCAs. This was the only downside plus the usual management not listening issues. This being said still a good place to work and would recommend.


Lots of overtime if you want it.


Being moved around the hospital.

Was a fun workplace

With increasing pressures in funding, etc the work has now become more pressing and much more than was previously expected. It is a nice organisation to work for and does have public jobs type flexibility




Too much

Poor culture

Felt optimistic on joining but head quarters are in the middle of no where. Management isn't concerned about staff. No career progression options. No clear structure on policies and procedures.




Poor management

Staff Nurse@Secure Hospital

The job is a challenge itself with the threats from patients at any given time. You are always short on shift and stretched to the limit with long stressfull days. Very high stress levels with pseudo staff support. The training is superb but the management is very institutionalised, racist and very punitive to staff who try to whistleblow bad practice. Its a hard hat area which i would only recommend to adrenaline junkies as the job requires you to be a super human. The experience you get is second to none but is it worth it when you cripple your career with one job. A lot of my colleagues who left the job as retired would spend a year and thereafter they die. It is not a good place to work anymore as shifts are changed at short notice.


You get paid


CQC are always in your unit
