Rose's story

I always felt drawn to the NHS as it’s where my family work, my dad is a retired chartered engineer and my brother is a doctor in Birmingham. But I had no idea about NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) before I started. I had to do my own research for the interview. 

A great thing about my job is the variety. No day is the same. I sort out queries, process maternity applications and deal with general HR procedures like recruitment and health and safety. I advise management and employees on HR policies.

"It wasn’t until my induction that I began to understand exactly what NHSBT did. It’s just amazing."

There are a lot of changes going on across our department and it’s teaching me how to adapt and handle new pressures. There is so much training, it’s great. NHSBT is a place to grow. They put people first and there is lots of funding for development. You can get all the training you need and can even study for a degree.

If you have a plan in place and it’s appropriate to your role, there is 100% support in your career path.
