How do you know if Ceredigion, Hywel Dda is right for you?

Ask yourself, do the following statements apply to you?

I want to work in a team that will support me to gain experience in a variety of services to consolidate my knowledge and develop new skills to become a well-rounded, versatile Physiotherapist

I want to work somewhere that is flexible in ensuring an individuals rotation needs are met, with a robust band 5 competency framework that will help me track my development and prepare me for potential promotions

I want to work somewhere that shares equal emphasis on developing me as an individual person as it does the importance of achieving core band 5 objectives

The pandemic has taught me the importance of having a healthy work-life balance, so, working somewhere that advocates team socials after work such as a short walk to the local beach to paddle board or a coffee after work is important to me

If so, then our team may well be the team for you.
