      Excellent employer

      Pros

      NHSBT has a great cause and saves lives. It's a friendly organisation with great benefits and, in most areas, very good development opportunities. I find NHSBT to be a caring organisation.

      Cons

      Only a minor point: NHSBT is on a perpetual cycle of restructures but no corporate directory so it's hard to keep track of who is who. I'm sure the latter will be resolved in due course.
