Admin & Clerical

When you think of jobs in the NHS, your mind may tend to jump to clinical roles such as doctors and nurses.

Career pathway

As we have so many administrative and clerical roles, this often brings lots of room for development and progression. There are plenty of opportunities to take further qualifications, often fully-funded, in order to grow your skills. All our staff undergo a yearly PADR (Personal Appraisal Development Review) where achievements and future career development goals can be discussed to help you reach that next stage. We always try to grow our staff and have a fantastic Learning & Development team in place to support this, including coaching staff.
