I have been working at TPP full-time
It’s great working somewhere you can have an impact from day one, and it’s even better when that impact is improving the NHS and other healthcare systems around the world. It’s meaningful, and it’s significant, and it adds a vocational element coming to work that you don’t get in a lot of similar jobs.
We collectively decide on our strategy and what projects we want to work on, and the teams get behind those decisions because they’ve been involved in them and believe in them. So you can come up with an idea, back up its merits with some solid rationale, and all of a sudden there’s five, ten, twenty people working to make that idea a reality. And then all of a sudden thousands of healthcare professionals are benefiting from your idea. I’m over-simplifying but you get the gist. The gist is good.
I think that’s what it boils down to for me. Yes, the pay is good, and yes, the perks are good, but I could be an investment banker and eat bacon sandwiches on a catamaran whenever I wanted. If you want to make a positive impact, this is the place to be.
Not a lot to be honest
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TPP (Leeds, England (UK)) in February 2016.
After reading the horror stories about the rudeness of interviews at TPP, I was expecting the worst and braced myself as best I could. In fairness, the interviews are very blunt and cold, if you do not make it to the next stage they will tell you 'Thanks, thats all we need for today', and then email you a rejection a few days later. I applied for the Commercial Manager role and made it through two interviews before hearing that phrase and being sent home. The questions they ask are deliberately designed to throw you off, so prepare to hold your nerve if you have an interview with TPP. I found a decent technique was to try and lead the interview as best you can, ask them where they would like you to sit, practically force them to shake your hand etc... Unfortunately I fell down on one of the logic problems, which I will detail below.
The building itself has a very weird era, even if I had passed the interviews it's not a place I would choose to work! 28k is certainly generous, but I got the feeling the job would be very cold.
Lots of exciting things going on at TPP at the moment! From our latest mental health sales to being in China alongside the PM's trade mission - read our latest news here http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQs1k
