ECG Training’s ethos to our employee’s –

When we recruit trainers, it is hugely important to us that they have the right clinical background and also the right personality. We hand pick those who we know will nurture and guide any delegates attending our courses, all whilst making it fun and engaging. It’s a tall ask, so when we get the right people in, we really do value them. We have a lot of freelance trainers working with us, giving us the ability to provide nationwide coverage and here we have asked Jen, one of our fantastically qualified, experienced and talented trainers to share her thoughts!

Jen Clayton’s thoughts about her time working freelance –

As a busy mum of young triplets who has a history of travelling, working abroad, teaching and nursing – ECG has been fantastic. It has abled me to still have a little variety to my life, exposure to different areas and communities of work and witness how other disciplines practice. Examples of the disciplines we work with are radiographers, pharmacist, dentists, nurses, admin staff and healthcare assistance’s.

Working freelance means that I can work around my husband’s work, children’s needs and still keep a part time clinical job. I have worked as a registered critical care nurse for the last fifteen years studying and working in London, Australia and various other parts of the UK. This plus my teaching and clinical skills diploma and masters in critical care has provided me with the knowledge and structure required to teach the relevant pathways. Some of the pathways we teach are Basic life support, vaccinations, anaphylaxis, intermediate life support, clinical skills…

ECG has a nurturing environment and even though I am never in their office I always feel part of the team, they are a family run organization and appreciate the challenges that having a family can bring to the table when trying to implement work!

So, thank you ECG for getting me out and about exploring again and visiting different professions!
