Case Studies

[casestudy]
  • Name: Lauren
  • Role: Graduate Analyst (Arabic or Mandarin speakers)
  • Joined: 2012
  • Degree: Computing

"When I graduated from university, I knew I wanted something different to the typical grad scheme. TPP stood out to me as a small company that was making a big impact in healthcare, and the ethos of ‘one patient, one record’ was certainly something that I’d taken for granted."

"Very early on, I was certain that the collaborative and team-based approach to learning suited me more than any rigid training structure of a grad scheme. Whilst everyone understands that you’re new and people are always on hand to help, what surprised me was the amount of responsibility and ownership you are encouraged to take. A month on, I was out in China, where I was involved in meetings with the Health Bureau and visiting community health centres to better understand their practices and healthcare system. Since then, I’ve been involved in lots of different areas of healthcare, from Child Health user groups to finalising parts of functionality for our Saudi project. I never imagined being involved in either healthcare or IT for a career, but as I am encouraged to think critically and analytically every day, it continues to be as rewarding as it is challenging."

"I also love living in Horsforth. I have a lovely 15 minute walk to work rather than a stressful commute, there’s everything you’d want from a city in Leeds and it’s still just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. There’s also plenty to get involved with outside of work, such as yoga and guitar lessons at lunchtimes and pub Fridays!"

"I joined TPP in 2012 after graduating with a degree in Computing. Whilst searching for graduate roles and entry level IT jobs, I came across the Technical Operations position. I was drawn to the role by the opportunity to start working immediately with enterprise level servers, network equipment and one of the largest databases in the world. A lot of the other jobs I considered either started at a low level of expertise or required years of experience, so this suited me perfectly."

"Within a couple of days of starting, I was able to use the skills I had learned at university to investigate, troubleshoot and improve an existing part of the infrastructure. I was delighted by the responsibility and confidence that my new colleagues had in my ability to complete tasks of this importance. This ethos is integral to the company; no matter how recently you have started, you are trusted to pick up work of any difficulty, and you will always be given support by experienced members of the team when you need it."

"During my first year, I completed a project that involved adding new functionality to SystmOne. This included selecting, configuring and building the hardware, software and networks for the project. Within a matter of months this was being used by millions of people to view their patient records."

"One of the great things about working in the Technical Operations team is the wide variety of work that we undertake. As we are responsible for the TPP infrastructure that spans several data centres situated across the world, we face constant exciting challenges. On a day to day basis your tasks can vary from carrying out a database optimisation, troubleshooting technical issues, or delivering a project from beginning to end."

  • Name: Leon
  • Role: Graduate Analyst
  • Joined: 2014
  • University: University of Leeds
  • Degree: Maths

"I joined TPP in late 2014 after studying Maths at the University of Leeds. Like a lot of university graduates, I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of careers available. However, I was keen to find a job that made use of the analytical skills I had developed at university. I discovered TPP through my university careers website, and the opportunity to work for a small company making such a big difference within its market was something I could not turn down."

"As soon as I started I was given a significant amount of responsibility, and on just my second day at TPP I attended a meeting with key NHS England staff. To be given a task of such importance so quickly in my career felt extremely rewarding, and I immediately felt welcome at the company. One thing that becomes apparent very quickly working at TPP is that everybody is entitled to a voice and an opinion. The amount of time you’ve been at the company doesn’t matter; you will always be listened to. Within my first year at the company I had worked on our GP module, the International Referrals project in Kuwait, and our Mental Health module, which was rolled out to four separate NHS trusts in the UK."

"No two days at TPP are ever the same. Life as an Analyst is incredibly varied and our work can include activities such as shadowing organisations and speaking to end users to find out their system needs, and performing analysis on the existing functionality to spot any potential areas of improvement. We also manage ongoing projects to ensure that expectations are met, and discuss new developments with our Software Developers to ensure that SystmOne remains at the forefront of clinical software. For me, leaving work knowing I’ve helped to make a difference to healthcare across the UK and internationally is an extremely rewarding and addictive feeling. It’s this feeling that gives me a real urge and excitement to continue the next day."

  • Name: Rosa
  • Role: Account Manager
  • Joined: 2015
  • Degree: Chemistry

"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!"

  • Name: Sven
  • Role: Technical Operations
  • Joined: 2007

"I’ve been working at TPP now for nine years, and during this time I have experienced a wide range of opportunities and projects that have made every day exciting."

"I’ve always been interested in all areas of IT, so being part of the Technical Operations team at TPP has been the perfect way to develop my 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 worked for a few different companies before starting at TPP and have never found a role that’s so varied."

"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 pride when we compare what we support to massive world-wide companies like Visa and Google. It’s very satisfying to know that I’m working for a company in Yorkshire that is up there with the biggest names in the world in terms of the solution we’re supporting, and that every day we are making a difference for the thousands of people around the world who use SystmOne."

  • University: Durham
  • Degree: BA & MA Philosophy

"I graduated from Durham in 2012 after 4 years of Philosophy and had no idea what to do next. TPP’s advert caught my attention because of the ‘No Experience Required’ and chance to improve and link up healthcare. I thought it was a good opportunity to do something worthwhile, so I gave it a go."

"From the start I was thrust into a team and picked up coding very quickly. It’s a hands-on approach and I love it. You learn a lot and 3 years later I am still learning every day. All the skills I learnt in my degree became part of my job. We always have an eye on the healthcare side of things and within months of working at TPP I was making changes that had a real impact on people working in healthcare settings."

"One of the major attractions was moving to Leeds. It’s so close to the Yorkshire Dales and there is plenty of night life, it’s an ideal mix of countryside and the buzz of a city. It’s a great area to go cycling and walking, and there’s also a load of beer festivals in the area. It’s a fantastic place to live and work."
