I have worked at CUH/Addenbrooke’s for 20 years first on the Staff Bank as Admin, then as Medical Secretary, Secretary, PA and finally Executive Assistant.
There have been ups and downs but in general I’ve enjoyed working here. There are definitely opportunities to advance and you are encouraged to take advantage of any courses and education on offer.
Work/life is usually pretty good but as with all places it does rather depend on your manager and which department you work in.
Annual leave is fairly generous as are other benefits of working in the NHS.
I would definitely recommend and have done so to family and friends.
Generous annual leave and other benefits, career opportunities, work/life balance
Differs depending on your job, or maybe none at all
