I look forward to coming to work because I know that whatever challenges the day will bring I am surrounded by people who work hard, and care about what we do.
When I completed my degree I was unsure what path I wanted my career to take. I had worked for Medvivo in the call centre during my uni holidays and so returned on a permanent basis after uni in a number of different roles before joining the HR team. I liked the work that Medvivo do, and the family feel of the company.
I was at university.
In my role as Senior HR Advisor I spend a lot of my day advising Line Managers about supporting and managing their teams. We provide information to the business for compliance and management purposes and I am responsible for pulling some of these reports together.
The people. I look forward to coming to work because I know that whatever challenges the day will bring I am surrounded by people who work hard, and care about what we do.
The progression I have made in my role is something I am really proud of – when I started within the HR Team five years ago, there was just me and one other person. Over the years the team has grown and changed and I have been able to develop into a role through those changes.
The nature of the work we do means that everyone is always very busy which can present its challenges! Asking for help/or spotting a colleague in need helps to overcome particularly busy or difficult times. This isn’t just within teams, but across the organisation.
- Commitment – if you are committed to Medvivo then Medvivo are committed to you. - Passion. - Patient/Customer focused. - Hard working. - You have to care.
My Line Manager provides support and guidance whenever I need it. We are the kind of team that work closely together and support each other. I was also encouraged to undertake an MA in HR Management a few years ago.
If flexible working is required this is something I know I can speak to my manager about openly. In my role I regularly advise Managers in how to support their team in flexible working requests which I think is something I believe we try to accommodate as much as possible whilst maintaining the needs of the service.
We really are a friendly, caring organisation which is passionate about providing the best possible services for our patients and customers.
I would recommend they come and see for themselves what we are really like! We often get feedback from new starters and potential candidates on how welcoming and friendly we are!
