The experience I gained whilst working in England following registration had a real impact on me in terms of confidence building, learning and development. Whilst working abroad in a very busy unit I was able to build up my clinical and people skills working in a diverse cultural society. It was there that I gained my first sister's post in a delivery suite which I really enjoyed the challenge of particularly with the responsibility and the routine of the work. During my experience as a community midwife in England I learned to project manage and became a team leader after 4 years as a traditional community midwife. I led a team that was looking at changing the approach to caring for women. It was then that I became more aware of the family needs of women as well as their clinical needs. In my present post I have had many opportunities for development and have felt well supported in all of my educational endeavours.

This will allow you to develop management skills whilst improving quality in your service. You must be patient and willing to take opportunities that present themselves.
