I am an Occupational Health Advisor covering the East Midlands looking after the health needs of 6 depots between Lincoln and Northampton. I have to travel a lot between my sites and I am usually at a different site every day. I may be carrying out health surveillance or medicals.
Every day is different and I get to see lots of different people.
We are a very professional close knit team who are passionate about occupational health. We support one another both in laughter and tears!
Honesty, passion and hard work and keeping the communication lines open. Working well in your team.
In my profession (nursing) I am legally obliged to keep clinically up to date and provide written evidence of this every 3 years to allow me to be registered. I am allowed to attend study days during the year and also my manager arranges regular teaching updates on various subjects to allow us to do this.
Being told how much people respect me and appreciate my help
Travelling long distances in the bad weather!! I just take each day as it comes and try and work round it.
Give it a go. All jobs have their ups and downs but it is what you make it!!
