There are a number of great things about the benefits package: parental leave/emergency leave (for those without children), way above the market average number of days annual leave (starts at 27 days per annum and rises to 33 after 10 years), bereavement leave and unlike most other NHS employers they do not use Bradford scoring for determining sickness absence. If you are genuinely ill, the management (when supported by your Union) ensure you are not treated badly. Unlike most other NHS employers when you return back to work after a period sickness absence and have a phased return, it is paid and not deducted from your annual leave entitlement or time you have to make up once you are working normal hours again. NHSBT's internal HR policies and practices ensure all staff are treated empathy, equitably and with compassion, these are qualities I sorely miss having moved to a DGH.
Brilliant Pension package, family friendly and lots of discounted activity
The benefit package is good but being a Government organisation it does not include private healthcare, insurance etc
Being part of a unique and rewarding organisation committed to saving and improving lives. Pay is set nationally by government
