Lots to learn, well structured graduate scheme.

Trainee Medical Physicist (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsWell structured graduate scheme for scientists.
Lots of training/education.
Opportunity to use scientific skills to improve healthcare.
Good pension.
Work life balance is generally good but studying often has to be done out of hours.

ConsSome work can be repetitive/tedious (e.g. quality assurance tests).
Majority of jobs for physicists are in radiotherapy, so getting jobs in other fields once you have qualified can be tricky.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at UK National Health Service full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Good social security, good bunch of people in general working for the NHS, the job is satisfying when they let you… Cons: Understaffing!!
