What are the benefits to Allocation on Arrival?

Laura Butler, Health Care Support Worker

"The twilight shifts are especially the ones that I tend to book over the weekend as it gives me flexibility especially around childcare and fits around my lifestyle. I would definitely recommend Allocation on Arrival shifts if you like flexibility and what's suitable for your lifestyle." 


Maya Flor-Iam Dar, Health Care Support Worker

"I am always booking via allocation on arrival because the shift patterns give me that healthy work-life balance. I now have more time with my kids, and I can now socialise more." 


Anna Tafadzwa Nyoni, Health Care Support Worker

"Allocation on arrival enables me to work in different departments/wards coming across different patients with different illnesses. The hours are very flexible, and I can block book my hours. There is also the opportunity to learn from different people, be it nurses or carers, I can then take this experience to other wards. I do enjoy the variety of the jobs and not knowing where I am going, it adds to the excitement of coming to work."

About Manchester

Since the inception of the 2014 Devolution Agreement, Manchester is delivering opportunities to better meet the needs of people that live and work in the area through investment in housing, supporting people into work and developing businesses.  

Most important of all for the Trust and its people, Greater Manchester controls public funding for health and social care. This means it can better respond to local people’s needs, tapping into the experience and expertise of local NHS services to focus on preventing ill health and promoting healthy lifestyles.

For MFT, this gives them the chance to control their own destiny. They’re proud to be harmonising health services in Manchester, with the ultimate goal of one hospital for Manchester. And they’re excited about the opportunities this gives to our people.

Whether you’re into music, the arts, shopping, food or sport, Manchester has the range of facilities and opportunities to suit your tastes.

The city is rich in music venues, large and small. It has two symphony orchestras, an internationally acclaimed opera house and AO Manchester Arena, one of the largest and busiest indoor arenas in the world with some 21,000 seats. This and smaller venues such as Manchester Apollo and the Manchester Academy showcase a vibrant music scene.

The arts are also thriving in Manchester, with a number of galleries and theatres showcasing the best of traditional and contemporary culture. And, from high street chains to designer boutiques and vintage stores, shopping is great here.

From the famous former ‘Curry Mile’ in Rusholme, with over 50 restaurants serving Indian and Pakistani food, to Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Italian – Manchester offers something for everyone. There are also plenty of Halal and Kosher retailers across the city, and a range of vegetarian and vegan cafés.

Sports fan will find plenty to keep themselves occupied. As well as big football clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City, our city also has an Olympic size swimming pool at the Manchester Aquatic Centre, and a velodrome, while Lancashire County Cricket club is close by. If you prefer taking part, there’s the chance to experience just about every activity you can imagine, from rock climbing in the nearby Pennines and Peak District to the UK’s longest – and the world’s widest – real-snow indoor ski slope at the Chill Factore.

Manchester offers the best of both worlds, a vibrant world city, two hours by train from London but with the breath-taking scenery of the Lake District, Peak District, Cheshire and North Wales all easily accessible. The city is well served by transport, with regular train connections across the UK, and Manchester International Airport providing direct flights to all major European cities. It’s easy to get around in the city due to its comprehensive bus, tram and local train network.

As far as setting up home in Greater Manchester goes, there are properties at a wide range of price points to rent or buy. From city to suburban to rural living, there’s something for all tastes: amazing city penthouses, contemporary apartments, Victorian terraces, semi-detached houses and traditional family homes.  Each area of Manchester has its own distinct identity, offering a lifestyle to suit everyone and a host of different shops, restaurants and leisure activities to explore within a compact area.  The relocation of staff from the BBC and other leading media organisations to Media City cements the region’s status as an affordable and attractive proposition for employment and home life alike.

It’s also a great place to learn. With the world-class University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, and the Royal Northern College of Music, the city boasts Europe’s largest urban higher education precinct. Equally, Greater Manchester is home to a variety of great schools and colleges.

Significant public and private sector investment over the last 20 years has transformed the city into one of the UK’s most innovative and modern urban hubs. Despite this, Manchester remains proud of its central role in the industrial revolution and has fiercely protected its heritage and historic architecture.
