Fulfilling, satisfying work as part of a very supportive team. Fair pay and a great job!
Assistant Practitioner (Current Employee) – Eden District, Cumbria. – 9 September 2018
Mainly, I want to write this review to encourage others to seriously consider working for Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust. I was 50 years young when I joined the Trust and was given such a warm welcome to my job in the NHS, having mainly worked in the charity sector. I was soon given the opportunity to progress, accessing high quality training.
I know I'm lucky to be a member of our team. Clearly, I can't speak for other teams. However, in our area of work, local teams have strong links to peers across Cumbria. I believe that if we behave professionally, are committed and prepared to take responsibility for our actions, then support is there to go from strength to strength. I have autonomy which is precious to me. We are encouraged to job plan and prioritise to fulfil our roles, so we can also participate in development projects so that we can constantly improve which feels fantastic.
I get the chance to meet, work with and support fascinating and inspiring people every working day. All this in one of the most beautiful rural areas in the World, that includes the Lake District National Park and the Pennies. And if you'd like to be close to the sea, West Cumbria offer gorgeous landscapes and a great choice of really affordable homes.
I strongly encourage others to at least visit the area, apply for 'your' job and. . .successful candidates, you can enjoy a good life in Cumbria.
Satisfying job, great colleagues, good management, fair pay, access to high quality training to progress, chance to work with colleagues, including people who use our services to constantly improve, stunning rural area to live in with massive variety of leisure activities to enjoy.
