Excellent advancement opportunities
Head Nurse (Current Employee) – Bradford & Halifax area – 11 January 2017
I have a worked for the company for nearly 5 years. I started as a part time receptionist and progressed to full time trainee nurse, to a qualified nurse, to decontamination lead, to head Nurse. I have received training for extended duties and post registration qualifications and have the opportunity to use these skills in practice where possible. It hasn't always been easy along the way, with having problems with some dentists and managers but I am lucky to have a very supportive area manager. I feel the company has gained a bad reputation in the past but are working hard to make changes. I have had endless support and opportunities given to me. The one thing obvious to me is that if you show willing, ambition, passion and drive and work hard, the opportunities are endless. I find people work for the company and have issues when they are asked to do the job they are employed to do. I have turned down many job opportunities to stay with the company. There is also a belief that the company will not pay more than £8ph for a qualified nurse which is not correct - maybe these nurses just don't warrant anything higher...
