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

Rather than doing PR, talk to staff.
I worked at NHS Confederation full-time (More than 3 years)
Friendly people on the whole, and as a not-for-profit was generally trying to do the right thing. Reasonable opportunities for progression.
Internal communication and lack of accountability were not great. Some departments treated as second class citizens at times.
Absorption and exposure to all the key challenges and changes occuring in the NHS
Lack of strong leadership meant a period of inertia was felt by staff. Internal communications were poor during this period but now improving.
