"In my third week I had the opportunity to travel to China..."

Description:

"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 didn’t want to be stuck away in a lab for the rest of my life."

Description:

"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!"

"every day our work is making a difference for the thousands of people..."

Description:

"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."

"the way we tackle problems at TPP is very similar to how I thought about Maths problems at Uni"

Description:

"I studied Maths in Manchester and started at TPP after graduating. At first, it was a little difficult adjusting to working full time but it's great that you don’t have to spend your evenings and weekends worrying about work, unlike when I was at uni.

I applied to TPP as I wanted to stay in the North after getting a taste of how city life can be without a long commute into London. I spoke to a TPP employee at a careers fair and heard how I would be able to use the skills I learnt at uni on a product that benefits everyone- something which was really important to me. I was also drawn to the idea joining a relatively small company where my voice could be heard from day one. Since joining TPP, I’ve found that I am much more confident when speaking in front of groups of people or when talking to people who I think are more senior than me

As a Software Developer, I’ve worked on areas such as improving SystmOne from the backend and adapting it so it can be used internationally. One of the biggest challenges my team have faced was how to create a billing system for units outside the UK, as this is something that doesn’t get used within the NHS. The task was made so much easier by working with people who support each other get on well.

In my spare time, I like outdoor activities and Horsforth is really close to the Dales which is awesome for bike rides and walks. There are stunning woods and parks within a mile of my house no matter which direction I choose to run in."
