Waiting list coordinator (Former Employee) – Exeter, ENG – 17 March 2015
Whilst at the RD&E I was given an excellent opportunity.
I started as an admin apprentice in January 2014 and by June 2014 I was a band 3 waiting list coordinator. I worked extremely hard to be noticed and the work paid off.
In any work place you are not always going to agree with everyone's opinions and suggestions but it is extremely important that you remain professional at all times whilst at work and it is vital that you are able to compromise.
The hardest part of this job was the ever increasing number of referrals our department was receiving but our capacity was staying the same. This resulted in patients waiting longer that they should of been for their procedures.
Manager (Former Employee) – Clinical and non clinical – 24 October 2019
If you are a good fit to the culture you will go far. There are shift patterns dependent on role. There are multiple specialities to choose from. I learned how the culture works in a large, hierarchical institution, to work across systems and to be adaptable and flexible.
