    I have been working at NHS Confederation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're interested in Health policy development of working directly with NHS bodies but without actually working for the NHS, this is the place.
    Lively, young team
    Loads going on- won't get bored.
    Amazing London office.

    Cons

    London weighting static for years
    CEO changes every 2 years (or less)
    Senior Team is embedded- progression impossible.
    Processes often actively stop anything changing (like the actual NHS!)
    Very silo-ed. Many teams literally don't talk.
    Too many good people leave quickly- nothing gets done to keep them

    Advice to Management

    Rather than doing PR, talk to staff.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NHS Confederation (City of London, England (UK)) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I worked there for nearly four years before I was asked to apply for the position. It felt as if the panel had already made up their mind, as I felt the members of the panle did not listen to my answers.

    I was not told I did not get selected for the post for more than 3 weeks after, when I knew they had made their mind up any way.
