Large corporate organisation with good pay and flexible working patterns. Plus good opportunities for career development and benefits
Restricted salary progression, ok pensions however poor bonus opportunities due to unrealistic turnover targets
Advice to Management
Focus on patient journeys, staffing levels and team satisfaction to improve performances
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Spire Healthcare (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in November 2016.
I updated my LinkedIn profile indicated that I was in search of your employment. Contacted a few hours later by recruitment company. Submitted an updated CV. A list of potential employers where found to which I'd expressed interest in one. Interview arranged. I booked flights and overnight stay. Arrived for interview 2hrs ahead of time. I was seen an hour ahead of schedule.
The interview was expected to be 45 minutes but lasted for 90 minutes. I was keen to explore the new opportunities the post offered. Explaining that I had signed up to do top up training in additional scientific disciplines. The communication was formal but casual at end after a tour of laboratories. I was confident and clear throughout asking appropriate questions pertaining to the offer of further skills training being offered.
I was told other candidates are to be screened as well and should expect an answer in 1-2 weeks. As it was a Friday I was not under pressure.
On Monday at 10am I was called to be told that the employer had decided I was selected before any further applicants were interviewed.
