I think we have a reputation for doing good quality work and being good to work with.
I wanted to continue working in the area of health and have the opportunity to develop my skills. At the interview Aire Logic came across as being friendly and operating with integrity. It seemed like they wanted to see if I was a good fit rather than box ticking.
Committed, friendly, expert, team, open
I attend stand up for the Development Team(composed of people from NHS Digital and Aire Logic) to share what I am working on and hear what the rest of the team are doing. I continue work on automating the generation of some documents which currently take a lot of manual work. I answer some questions from other members of the Development Team to help with things they are working on, and look at some comments from a code review. I attend a multidisciplinary team meeting to work on a theme for NHS Pathways. This particular theme is called Simplifying Pathways. We’re introducing some changes to how the system helps call handlers choose a service (e.g. GP) for a patient.I provide technical advice and demonstrate some samples I have produced of how the system would look.
At Aire Logic you have the opportunity to work with people more experienced than you and people are open to sharing their experience and best practices. You can work in different environments and be exposed to different working practices.
It is very open and informal, with an emphasis placed on excellence.
I enjoy working in the field of health and working on interesting problems.
Getting positive comments where some work I have done has made a process work better or added a useful new feature.
A tricky one to answer as I’d imagine a lot of your experience can depend what site you’re on. Perhaps more feedback on how I can improve my code (which I do get from AL if I ask for it) or being able to work with some different technologies.
Success for me is improving my skills, whether that be in my coding, communication or teamwork.Also being able to make an impact. Aire Logic allows me to work on a project where I can do that.
Ensuring we acknowledge when some good work has been done and passing on positive comments so we can see the impact of the work.
