Is Attain for me?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions, Attain may just be the best place for you to use your talents and develop your career:

  • Are you passionate about achieving the best patient care?
  • Do you want to deliver real outcomes rather than talk about them?
  • Are you committed to working alongside clients, transferring knowledge and skills?
  • Can you be flexible in terms of where you work, including working away from home for certain periods of time?
  • Do you want to be a part of a young and rapidly expanding organisation, growing your career as we grow?

You will thrive at Attain if you are really committed to making the changing NHS landscape work for patients, and to do so in real, lasting partnership with the clients we work with. You will be successful if you want to “roll up your sleeves” and deliver results. You will feel at home if you enjoy the changes that come with working for a rapidly growing organisation. And you will make the most of the varied opportunities Attain has to offer if you are happy to travel to various locations, working on different assignments to meet the needs of our clients.

I am a Manager within Attain’s Procurement team. Before joining Attain, I worked in the Private Sector, but I also bring seven years’ Commissioning, Contracting and Procurement experience within Health and Social care as well as a wide range of experience in other related fields. Attain is a friendly and welcoming company to work for. Innovation and personal development are encouraged. As an example, I am currently one exam away from completing my CIPS qualification, with support from Attain. Attain’s dynamism and flat structure empowers everyone to challenge, lead change and make an impact. I love the variety my job offers. The opportunities created by Attain’s operating model enable me to feel that I am doing my bit in regards to helping patients get the healthcare they need.

Liz Stephens

Liz-Stevens-150px_circleAfter starting my career in social care services I was looking for my next move which would challenge me but also allow me to retain a focus on making a difference for the patient. This is exactly what Attain have offered through their values based focus, which really does run through the business. Moving into the private sector and into healthcare services could have been daunting but I have been fully supported throughout this transition. I am constructively challenged and given opportunities which bring out the best in me but also ensure that we are delivering the best possible services to patients.

Ryan Irwin

Ryan-Irwin-150px_circleHaving worked in various senior management and consultancy roles in the past across both the independent and public healthcare sector, I joined Attain recognising the clear and collective organisational vision for improving care, together with a sincere commitment to people development. Attain is a great organisation, with a positive, value-driven and collaborative culture that gets the best out of the people that work within it – ultimately, this translates into better results and outcomes for the clients and patients we deliver for. Working with Attain has allowed me to be involved in a wide and extremely interesting range of programmes and projects that have both challenged me individually whilst supporting real change and impact for people using health and care services. The opportunity for autonomy, creativity and innovation in delivery is a real point of difference working with Attain and the expert support and guidance you gain from across the organisation, with a healthy mix of various personal and professional staff backgrounds, supports a great working environment.

Lindsay Springall

Lindsay-Springall-150px_circleI joined Attain in May 2014 as a Manager in the Service Transformation Team. Prior to applying to work at Attain, I had heard only good things about the organisation from colleagues; as Attain had previously completed projects in our local health economy where I had worked as a Programme Manager for Planned Care and Children’s Commissioning, over a five year period, for both a CCG (and PCT previously). Feedback had centred on the fact that Attain had delivered what they promised and they would not make recommendations that they would not be comfortable with delivering. I had recently completed a master’s in business and was keen for a new challenge but wished to remain working in the health sector. I therefore applied to Attain in order to gain different experiences of health economies across England. Attain has provided just that; working within 5 different CCGs on short to medium length projects since joining. Upon joining, I was struck by Attain’s clear vision, drive and desire to support commissioning. Work colleagues are fantastic, and as we have all worked in different elements of health and social care both within the private and public sector, the opportunity to learn from others and develop new skills is vast. In addition, whilst we all work and live across the country, our approach to our organisational values facilitates an environment of support, learning and delivery. I can honestly say that Attain is a great place to work!
