Marketing Assistant, Kerry Sharpe outlines her top 10 reasons why it’s great to work at Tunstall Healthcare.
1. Food Glorious Food
Tunstall’s canteen has a wide variety of healthy and indulgence foods at low prices which makes this room one of the busiest in the building. Our friendly cooks prepare full English breakfast with the option of fruit, cereal or poached eggs on toast if you are on a health kick. If you are bright and early you can also get your hands on homemade scones, Danish pastries, crumpets and lots more.
The salad bar at lunch is your healthy option if you splash out on bacon and sausage at breakfast, or if you’re after a hearty meal to get you through the day, homemade curry, chilli, pie and battered fish are there to fill your boots. You can easily eat and drink at work every day at a low cost without ever needing to prepare pack up again. Result!
2. Free parking
The large off road secure car park helps you keep your daily travel costs down as it’s absolutely free. You can park here all day without the panic of rushing back to the meter to top up your time. The employee fob entry system gives you reassurance that your vehicle is safe and secure and vehicles can also be left here overnight if required. We have certain departments with stocks of safety equipment should your car annoyingly break down and with a large number of employees onsite there’s always a handy man to help a damsel in distress.
3. Easy to get to (and get away)
With easy access to many motorway links there’s always more than one route to get to or from work if there are hazards on your usual journey. You can easily take another turning rather than sit in a dreaded traffic jam!
4. International links – learn about global, not just UK
As a worldwide organisation you don’t just learn about the UK business processes but also how our international territories work. This gives us the opportunity to share, listen and learn about all business cultures and see how we can adopt each other’s successful processes to our working environment. Handy!
5. Birthday Cake Galore
With around 350 employees based at head office you can imaging there are a lot of birthdays, and lots of birthday’s means lots of birthday cake. Yum!
6. You are supporting real people live independently
Probably the most satisfying aspect of working for Tunstall is knowing you are making a real difference to people’s lives. Improving independence and helping individuals feel safe and secure in their own home is so important to our customers and knowing you are helping people achieve that and seeing the impact it has on their lives it very satisfying.
7. Charity work & CSR activities
There’s nothing wrong with feeling proud for achieving something great. At Tunstall we regularly fundraise for charities by supporting events such as McMillan Coffee morning, children in need and hosting our own charity raffles. We also have a CSR policy in place where each member of staff are permitted one voluntary working day out of the year to help businesses in the local community.
8. Shop till you drop!
Being away from busy town centres keeps the unnecessary spending at bay, however we do hold small retail events to settle those retail therapy needs! Body Shop, The Book People, Halfords, The Candy Man and Costco are just a few of the names we’ve had selling their goodies along with cards, candles and cakes for the Christmas countdown.
9. Tunstall family
Our Collaborative and friendly culture invites many workers across the business worldwide, you will hear many languages spoken all around the building. With friendly messages and comments from international colleagues when a country needs it most it’s always nice to know we all come together and unite as one. We are one Tunstall, we are one team.
10. Create your own path
Here at Tunstall there are lots of opportunities to develop and progress. Many workers started their Tunstall journey in a department completely different to the one they are in today. The opportunities to get involved in other departments and progress your skills are endless.
