I worked at Public Health England full-time (More than 3 years)
Friendly, professional, and a great place to learn new knowledge and skills. Evidence based practice used at all times. I learnt a lot.
The commute was not good at all for me. Also being on call and still having to work the next day even if you were woken during the night, not at all appreciated by my family.
Advice to Management
Look at the on call system. Surely the consultants could do a bit more of the on call work, instead of everything having to be done by 1st on call. I sometimes worked 8 hours a day on Sat and Sundays whilst the consultant did nothing at all. ( well it depended who was on call with you) You could get very tired. No days off in lieu and then back to work on Monday was not really a healthy work life balance.
This interview was through an agency for a temporary role.
All members of staff seemed very friendly and professional. The interview did not take too long and after the interview I was asked to have a further short interview with the head person/ senior person in the company. I felt that the interview went well and I felt that they liked my answers and they were giving me the feeling that I was going to get the job but later my agency called me and told me that unfortunately there was someone that was a bit better... but there was nothing wrong with my answers.
