- Joined: 2015
- University: National Taiwan University & Newcastle University
- Degree: BA Foreign Languages and Literatures & MA Translating and Interpreting
Following my graduation in 2015, I started looking for a challenging and exciting job opportunity where I would be able to apply my skills from university. During my job hunt I came across the Analyst position at TPP. As I researched TPP I felt straight away that this was a company that was working for a good cause and was somewhere where I could really make a difference, so I didn’t hesitate to apply.
After joining I was quickly welcomed into the diverse and vibrant office environment. Everyone is enthusiastic and is working together towards the same goal, which inspires and motivates me to contribute as much as possible to my team.
I was also given immediate responsibility very early on in the job. In my third week I had the opportunity to travel to China, where I took part in meetings and system integration training. Having direct experience on site really helped me to gain an insight into what we do and the positive impact that it has.
I have only been at TPP for a few months, but I already feel a genuine excitement about what this job can offer me. I have so much ownership over my work and I am thrilled about the company projects and prospects. In general, TPP is helping me to grow into a more confident and better person.

"I started as an Account Manager at TPP after finishing my degree in Chemistry. I enjoyed my degree but I wasn’t necessarily keen on pursuing a career in it as I didn’t want to be stuck away in a lab for the rest of my life. What I really wanted was a customer-facing role where I would be meeting and interacting with people every day. Healthcare is an area I have always been interested in, so working for a clinical software company is ideal as I can help to improve patient care within a role that I really enjoy."
"For me, the best thing about working at TPP is that from day one I have been trusted and given real responsibility. Although this could be considered daunting, my team are always fully supportive and I always feel I can ask for help if needed. Within just a few weeks I was completely managing my own time and workload, and had the opportunity to get involved in several big projects. Another fantastic thing about TPP is that your opinion is always heard whether you’ve been at the company for ten years or ten weeks."
"As I am responsible for our customers in the South of England, I get to travel a lot for meetings which is something I really enjoy. I have been to lots of new places and met people from all levels within the NHS, including the Chief Executives of several trusts. I am also responsible for managing national contracts and ensuring that we retain our current business, as well as expanding our customer base across the UK."
"I find that I am constantly challenged and every day is different which means coming to work is always interesting. I’ve acquired so many new skills as well as developed my existing ones since I joined the company. TPP moves at such a fast pace and there are so many different opportunities arising every day, so it’s really exciting to be part of it all!"

- Role: Technical Operations
- Joined: 2017
- University: Aberystwyth University
- Degree: BSc Computer Science
I’ve recently started working at TPP, and since I have started I have experienced a wide range of projects and tasks that have kept each day fresh, new and exciting.
I have always been interested in all aspects of computing, so becoming a part of the Technical Operations team has been the best way to progress my knowledge and career. In any given week I could be looking at networking, databases, server hardware or scoping an international data centre for a new project. I have found that TPP offers a friendly and understanding environment to learn new skills while still giving me a major say in what happens, even as a new starter.
A major part of the Technical Operations role is ensuring SystmOne is up and running all the time for our customers, which involves looking after one of the largest real-time databases in the world. It gives the whole team a real sense of both scale and pride when we compare what we support to massive world-wide companies like Visa and Google. It’s very satisfying to know that our work is comparable with the biggest names in the world in terms of the solution we’re supporting, and that every day our work is making difference for the thousands of people around the world who use SystmOne.

Following my genetics undergrad and a couple of research jobs in Cambridge and Oxford, I decided I was ready to start on a career in research genetics. With a couple of PhD offers in hand, I realised I had spent my entire life bouncing around the South East and I really ought to see what the North was like – so I accepted a genetics PhD in Leeds. A year and a half in, it became obvious to me that a lifetime focusing on and becoming an expert in a tiny area of science, working ridiculously long hours at the whim of delicate experiments, chasing funding more than fundamental questions and having very little impact on the real world was not for me!
A few months spent soul searching and reminiscing about the fun and satisfaction I’d gotten from tinkering with computers during my teens (almost exclusively to play games…) and I committed to a new career in IT. Further months passed unsuccessfully applying for programming jobs, and I was on the verge of getting another loan out to go back to university when I found TPP’s job advert (“No experience required!”).
Ten years later and I’m still here. I’ve fulfilled my dream of using technology to improve the human condition and more so, found a place where you’re hired for the person you are and what you can achieve, rather than for what you know. TPP is a place where you’re not working for someone, but instead working with a lovely bunch of like minded people to build great things.
I now have a fifteen minute leafy stroll to the office rather than a horrific commute. My northern experiment turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made.

Like many people, when I left university I still wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. When looking at different companies TPP stood out to me because of the variety in the work it does, the open and team-based working environment, and the awards it has won for being an outstanding company to work for.
TPP has a flat hierarchy with no team leaders or middle management, which meant that I was trusted with a large amount of responsibility early on. When starting work, I was immediately able to make an impact on multi-million pound international projects and within a month had represented the company on visits to health centres in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Since then, I’ve also travelled to several provinces of China and different regions of the UK.
As a new graduate, it was refreshing to be able to challenge things I didn’t agree with or understand and have my opinion listened to. At TPP, mistakes are accepted as part of the learning process. This leads to a really open culture and leaves you free to do your job without worrying.
Outside of work there are loads of great perks such as being part of sports teams, pub Fridays and regular social events. Most employees are relatively young and live within a similar area, so it is easy to get involved in the social side of things, especially as there is so much to do in Leeds.
TPP was definitely the right choice for me. If you’re looking for an interesting and varied career at a company where you are really well looked after then this is the job for you!
