If monthly pay isn't everything the NHS is worth a look.

Information Analyst (Current Employee) Liverpool, England

ProsThere are a hugh variaty of jobs in the NHS and it is possible to move location and role quite easily. There is a big emphasis on work-life balance so below managment level you can forget about work outside your 37.5 hours a week. Although the pay is lower than simular jobs in the private sector, the pension is good, as is the holiday allowance.

ConsThe pay structure is very rigid - those who perform their job well find their pay raises at the same rate as those who are incompitant.

Advice to Senior ManagementInternal communication is essentual if you want staff who will give a possitive image of the service.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
