"After finishing University I travelled & worked abroad, before returning to the UK to start my professional career. I qualified as a paramedic and worked for the London Ambulance Service and NHS 111 before joining PFAS as a Personal Functional Assessor (PFA).
The move from the front line to office based health professional was quite a change, but one that I am very happy I made. Being a PFA allows me to use my medical knowledge, maintain my clinical development/skills and learn new skills.
Working for PFAS I have qualified as a PFA, Auditor, Trainer, Mentor, Clinical Support Lead and Regional Clinical Manager. It is varied and challenging role that allows me to use my clinical skills & knowledge in a different way with a mix of face to face assessment, clinical analysis and report writing."
“I have worked for PFAS for over 4 years now, starting as a Functional Assessor and then progressing into my current role of Clinical Support Lead. I enjoy working in this role as you are provided with great support and there is a real team atmosphere around where I work.
Management are very supportive and are on hand whenever you need something. The work life balance is great as opposed to doing shift work and also provides you with a new challenge everyday.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years with PFAS and look forward to the years to come.”
Working for PFAS offers me the work life balance that suits perfectly! There are many perks working for the company. I am autonomous in what I do, but also have my wonderful colleagues and line manager for support whenever I need it.
I continue to utilise my nursing skills and learn more and more each day about various conditions that enhances my knowledge and practise. Not to mention the perks of having the opportunity to work over time to save for a nice holiday and a great benefit to having an excellent salary which definitely helps in todays climate.
I would highly recommend any health professional to join PFAS, it has been the best move I have made in a long time!
I have worked for PFAS for 2 years now. It was a complete change for me moving from a clinical role in a nursing home environment to an office based role, and moving away from longer term care, but a change that I am so pleased I made!
I joined the team as a Functional Assessor and then moved in to the CSL role when the position arose. In both roles I have been able to really develop my clinical, analytical and management skills. I have felt very supported throughout all of my time at PFAS in both my personal and professional development. I am currently working as a Regional Clinical Manager and enjoy that every day brings a different challenge and opportunity for me to learn.
