    I worked at Nuffield Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people. Such a great mix of people. From head office to the cleaners. Everyday is different, always something to do and learn. Great place for personal development with good support and encouragement. Company reinvests in staff constantly. Has a great plan in place for the public. Makes huge efforts to change lifestyles of members and staff for the better.

    Cons

    Salary much better in management positions than when starting out although the they do have a better than minimum wage wage. Still not good for a London club for any person to be on less that £8p/hr, not in this financial climate. The company has to many processes and meetings about meetings. If we could just send and email or complete an online form and things would work just as fine then we should do that.

    Pros

    The company funds an advanced professional diploma in health and wellbeing physiology.
    Quick progression (but poor salary)
    Free gym membership.
    Good clinical experience.
    Good stepping stone into more recognised clinical roles.

    Cons

    Lack of admin time to complete work duties as well as diploma, expected to complete your diploma in your own time.
    Discrepancies in pay for people working in the same position as each other .
    Very limited CPD available to physiologists (apart from the diploma) unless you have been working for the company for over 2 years.
    You can be made to travel to different London sites every day, which is tiring and impacts morale.
    If you leave the company within 3 years you have to pay back mandatory training such as ILS and Phlebotomy, which you cannot work without.
    Senior management impose their authority on you.
    No incentive or bonuses for hard working individuals/sites.

    Advice to Management

    Physiologists should not be expected to pay back mandatory training such as ILS and Phlebotomy.
    It should be clearly stated in the interview process that physiologists what 'mobile' means expected to move sites frequently.
    Senior management should provide more incentives/bonuses to exceptional physiologists to recognise and encourage their hard work.

    Pros

    Good upskilling
    Exposure to many areas of health and wellness
    Great colleagues

    Cons

    Main tasks and duties extremely repetitive
    Low salary
    Progression quick but limited

    Advice to Management

    Don't progress people into senior roles so quickly, give them more time to learn or at least provide staff with more tools to be able to step into the role.

    Incentive or commission scheme would be a good addition to increase low basic salary

    I worked at Nuffield Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally nice people, reasonably flexible on hours. I assume a degree of rule bending goes on everywhere, so perhaps its not so bad really. Generally nice facilities

    Cons

    Poor organisation, frequent failure to adhere to regulations on breaks for lifeguards. Part time staff made to feel constantly on their 'final chance' although they always struggled to replace people who left. Very poor maintenance of facilities, everything is a 'bodge job'. I always felt bad for people who paid the membership fees. Depressingly low morale - if you were openly polite, helpful or engaging with customers other staff found it weird.

    Advice to Management

    This could be so much better - don't make lifeguards reliant on gym staff. They don't want to/know how to help or do the responsibilities you give them to do with the pool so please train the DMs as well. The DMs and higher are totally complacent so get them in line, and they will stop lower level staff loafing about. Stop the cleaners smoking inside - what a stupid problem to have! High quality facilities quickly depreciating due to lack of care. This refers to the sports club not the hospitals, I'm sure they are very different.

    I worked at Nuffield Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Training and leadership development is superb - never enough but you can't fault the effort the company puts in. The vision of Nuffield is ground breaking. The board of Nuffield has some good people , particularly the longer serving ones, they believe in people and why it's important to develop and retain them.

    Cons

    Sometimes overdoes the drive for profit at the expense of its people.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people - Nuffield is unique and as a charity should invest in its people
