Exciting career

Rated 3 out of 5

Self motivation essential, varied work with an abundance of challenges. Good team work and inter personal skills are essential together with a good work ethic.

An experience not to be missed.

Rated 5 out of 5

There is always something different to do every day and there are ample opportunities should you wish to seek them for either or bothpromotion and specialisation.


Rated 2 out of 5

Good people trying to do good things in difficult circumstances. Too many cooks ad a total lack of strategy make this a difficult place to work. Their is a tendency to react, rather than plan.


Rated 3 out of 5

A lot of challenges which change on a daily basis with new methods and procedures . Some management have a lack of leadership skills and are incapable of adequately fulfilling their role.

Great Experience

Rated 5 out of 5

Taught me a lot over the 30 years I was there. Gained a great insight into dealing with all members of Society and having a balanced approach to life.
