  • Name: Adele
  • Role: Account Manager
  • Joined: 2009

Description:

I joined TPP straight out of university almost seven years ago – the time has flown by! I studied Business Studies at university and I knew I wanted a customer focused career, so when I saw this opportunity it felt perfect. Despite the fact that I studied a business related degree, what is important for this role is your character, not your degree. The key to succeeding as an Account Manager is being friendly and well organised.

One of the aspects of the role that I enjoy the most is that our work is so varied. Our main focus is around building relationships, business growth and setting the strategic direction of the company. This involves attending events and demos, working on procurements and prioritising the key projects.

As an Account Manager, you will be given responsibility from day one – whether that is looking after existing customers, or trying to break in to a new area. The relationships we hold are typically with Chief Executives and Directors of Information Management & Technology within NHS organisations, as well as NHS bodies such as NHS Digital and NHS England right through to the Department of Health at the top level of government. It’s incredibly exciting to be trusted to manage relationships of this importance so quickly.

In my time at TPP, I have had the opportunity to be involved in so many fantastic projects. Some of the best ones have been working on multi-million pound procurements and being involved in one of our newest modules, Mental Health, being developed and deployed. You get a real sense of achievement when you can see the difference SystmOne makes to an organisation and, ultimately, to patients.

One of my favourite aspects of the Account Manager role is the travelling we get to do both in the UK and internationally. A couple of years ago everyone in the company had the opportunity to visit China, which is one of the emerging markets we are operating in. It was a real eye-opener to experience the different culture and get a taste of how the Chinese do business.

There are numerous other benefits including regular massages, breakfast on a Friday and £200 to spend on a meal for your birthday. Every Friday there’s a free bar tab at the local pub, and there are also regular company parties – TPP is an incredibly sociable place to work! This means that you make friends very quickly with people from across the whole company, which really helps you to settle in.

  • Name: Lauren
  • Role: Graduate Analyst (Arabic or Mandarin speakers)

Description:

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

Description:

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: Tim
  • Role: Software Developer
  • Joined: 2012
  • University: Durham
  • Degree: BA & MA Philosophy

Description:

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.
