    I worked at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence full-time

    Pros

    I worked at NICE for nearly 6 years in the CHTE team. I had an overwhelmingly good experience during my time there. I was supported significantly, both on a personal and professional level. I felt the management genuinely cared about it's staff, and worked hard to give people opportunities. The people are some of the most hardworking and intelligent I have ever come across. It was a massive decision for me to leave

    In my new role, I now realise how well trained I was. My line managers and superiors always made time to try and upskill me. I was always offered the opportunity to take on new training, despite signficant resource challenges. Similarly, now looking back, I realise just how high quality the outputs are

    Cons

    The only con to working here is the pressure the organisation is under. They continually do more with less; which leads to more pressure. I found during my time, the work was done, because the vast majority of people went the extra mile. I myself worked far more hours than in my contract. However, I was never pressured to do this. This team in particular, if given time and resource, could do incredible things. I just hope they are given that opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Give your talented staff opportunities, and remember to thank them. They go above and beyond, almost every day. A thank you goes a long way.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Manchester, England) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Scenario assessment and panel interview. The panel Chair was a pleasure to deal with. The one clinician on the panel demonstrated behaviors that on reflection I decided I did not want to work with. The questions were pretty standard except one sub set of two that required domain specific clinical answers. The advertisement and the job description did not reflect these requirements in any way, shape or form, yet I got through the sift. When I challenged this, what I heard was that this knowledge would be needed. I simply could not understand this fundamental misalignment and I found the whole experience rather concerning.
