Video transcript: Jay Jay's story

00:00:06,600 --> 00:00:08,840

I chose the UK because

00:00:09,400 --> 00:00:15,120

basically the UK I wanted ever since to

work in the UK and Cambridge,

00:00:15,360 --> 00:00:19,160

back then all I thought was if I'd

managed to get into this hospital,

00:00:19,160 --> 00:00:23,160

I'd be living in a place where

famous people actually come from.

00:00:23,760 --> 00:00:27,920

And then when I managed to

progress into my application,

00:00:28,320 --> 00:00:31,200

support from the trust

started pouring in.

00:00:31,200 --> 00:00:37,920

So my visa application, my kind of process

was supported by the trust.

00:00:38,440 --> 00:00:41,320

The thing I like the most

about working here at CUH,

00:00:41,320 --> 00:00:43,800

is the career opportunities that I got

00:00:43,800 --> 00:00:49,600

and still available to get the support

from my bosses, from my department

00:00:49,600 --> 00:00:52,800

and the trust’s support is just tremendous.

00:00:52,800 --> 00:00:59,040

People are very educated, very kind,

very polite, and also it's quite diverse here,

00:00:59,440 --> 00:01:02,920

and you're going to be living in Cambridge,

which is a brilliant place to live in.

00:01:02,920 --> 00:01:05,760

For me, being a Filipino,

we do have a community here.

00:01:05,760 --> 00:01:10,520

We actually have basketball games

every Tuesday night from basically

00:01:10,520 --> 00:01:14,360

all the Filipinos who are living in Cambridge.

It was such a fun experience.

00:01:16,440 --> 00:01:20,640

Working in Addenbrooke's Hospital is

one of the best things that happened in my life.

00:01:20,640 --> 00:01:25,440

You're working in a world class hospital,

are working with world class surgeons, colleagues.

00:01:26,480 --> 00:01:28,200

Cambridge is a brilliant place to live in.

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:31,200

So yeah, come and join us.
