I have been working at NHS Grampian full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Secure, comfort, routine and benefit are the right combination for Life-balance, especially to family-person type of employee. Well look after the disadvantage people i.e. people with disabilities. In other words, it's a working place that provide good social welfare.
Cons – Lack of competitiveness. There is no reward scheme that based on performance because there is no KPI at an individual level. There is no difference in the return on contribution. Not a right place for ambitious person.
Advice to Senior Management – Improve an efficiency of human resource development in the non-clinical services areas.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at NHS Grampian full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Salaries are very competitive compared to private sector (even those in local oil industry. Ts & Cs like Annual Leave, Pension scheme, Sickness Allowance very competitive with other non NHS Orgs.
Cons – Capability and capacity major concerns for some functions led by senior managers including executive team. Talent management a major issue with succession planning not really in place.
Advice to Senior Management – Collaborative leadership very much a problem -leadership development review required? External resource & influence required to identify key drivers for change -key stakeholders at executive levels (including HR) may not have the understanding &/ or capability to change things
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
