Working Here: Enam’s story


Jamie Tulley

We’re really proud of our colleagues and the amazing work they do for our communities and healthcare.  These stories are from the people that work at Here, who work so hard everyday to provide exceptional care, for everyone.

This week we’re spotlighting Enam, our SMSKP Project Coordinator. Enam has been working for Here since March 2022.

Why did you choose to work in MSK?

I was working in the Vax team, and I was approached by a colleague to apply for the role. The role interested me as the work seemed interesting and exciting. Considering the skills I learned from being in the vax team I was intrigued to see if I could rise to the challenge of MSK.

Describe what you do in 100 words.

A project is initially discussed within MSK Leads. Our Manager, Andy Henderson, then meets us to discuss and allocate an agreed project. Projects have the definition of being strategically important to the MSK service such as where we can improve / create a patient service or system and for Here itself such as improving the office space for staff (but these projects are rare).

Once a project is allocated it is up to the project coordinator to drive, implement and deliver the project within its set deadline. We also handle the aftermath of the project, such as reviews and reporting.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

The variety, no two projects are the same. I am a keen learner and always looking to improve my knowledge of MSK and project management. The team around me is great, our project team is actually split on to two with Development and Improvement, working alongside them is great.

Seeing a project completed and being implemented into the service has its sense of pride knowing the team put a lot of effort and time in to it.

What would you say to someone thinking about a career in MSK?

Do not be afraid of not knowing. The organisation is great and provides training and learnings. You can always ask for support. MSK is a huge service. From an admin / operations perspective there are plenty of opportunities to develop.

How would you describe the MSK in one word?
