Was a great organisation but now going downhill fast
Business & Op Delivery Admin (Current Employee) –  Leeds16 August 2018
The CEO is taking the organisation through great changes at the moment including large amounts of redundancies.

The culture has changed dramatically over the last 18 months and morale is really low. This has been exacerbated by the redundancy programmes that are being brought in threatening all bands and all locations - including closing down two locations completely.

Day to day experience will very depending on department / team.

Relatively good place to work
Financial accounting Officer (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire1 October 2018
NHS Shared Business Services is a private finance firm aimed at employing people who are finance oriented. NHS Finance aims at preparing financial information for the NHS organisation and they train their staff and award them a certificate in Healthcare Financial Management Association.

Management comprises of qualified managers with good qualification though some managers have risen through experience. The hardest part of the job contacting all clients to discuss their finance records with them but it becomes routine with time.

NHS Shared business services is a great place to work as it comprises of a lot of joyful people who love what they do and they like to be around people. There is a culture where people are free to bring some light foods to share with their workmates.
Pros
From time to time the company buys lunch for staff
Cons
Sometime there are long hours of work to meet deadlines

Senior Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Leeds23 May 2018
my typical day at work is fast paced. I support adults with learning disabilities to live their lives in their own homes. I help with all aspects of personal care, postural management needs, finances, administration of medication. I have gain knowledge and skills in different aspects of my jobs from epilepsy to dealing with challenging behaviours. Hardest part of my job is when the individuals get unwell as you form bonds with these. the most enjoyable part of my job is seeing these individuals been able to live there lives to the best they can whilst been as independent as they can.
Pros
pensions scheme
Cons
long hours working weekends

Summary
PROGRAMME MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Leeds, UK17 September 2018
NHS has a low retention ratio due to low salaries. A move from the government this year gave a small increase and the same for next year. Is this enough to increase retention? Time will tell.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire23 April 2018
No two days the same. As a completely new starter in the NHS I learned a whole new language both long hand and abbreviations. The staff were friendly and helpful and very supportive and the management team did their best to make sure we all worked together to get the work done right first time within the deadlines. As an NHS workplace the culture was healthcare based with lots of emphasis on what was happening in and around the City and what staff could do to support each other and the Community whether it be sponsorship or baking cakes to raise funds for charity events.
Difficult part of the job was often dealing with patient/colleague complaints/concerns.
Most enjoyable part of the job - getting the right outcome for the patient/colleague for their complaint/concern.
Pros
short commute
Cons
never enough staff

Medical Devices Buyer (Current Employee) –  Carrwood, Leeds3 April 2018
Working hand in hand with the NHS, the job is busy and keeps you on your toes. Most enjoyable part is getting a thanks when you've help out a customer getting what they need to perform their service.
Hardest part of the job is year end as all NHS trusts look to spend any left over money.

Rewarding workplace
Clerical Officer (Current Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire26 December 2017
On a daily basis I answer the phones, receiving referrals and booking appointments for patients.
You learn the bespoke systems used within the NHS and the importance of data protection.
Strong management who are considerate of their employees.
Hardest part of the job is the low salary for agency employees, most enjoyable part is the rewarding nature of helping patients.

Easy but boring repetative roles that can become mind numbing.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire14 December 2017
Very poor starting wage, bone idle management who have the attitude that if you don't like it leave. Constantly trying to run what is in effect a business on an absolute shoestring. EVERYTHING is run down, repaired, broken ,repaired again breaks and so on. The staff themselves feel really undervalued and demoralised. However they mostly do their best. Leave entitlement is good. ( if you can take it due to staff shortages).
Pros
Good annual leave
Cons
frustrating in every aspect.
