Permanent Vs Bank HCA
I've just been offered two jobs & have no idea which one to take.
They are both in residental secure units, working with adults with learning &/or mental health problems. & both are 12hr shifts.
One is a permanent role, but is 1.30hr journey to get there, however it has a lovely atmosphere & the few people I have met are really nice & friendly. & will be working a 3 shift pattern.
The other is bank, only 15min walk away & a little bit more money, but the atmosphere is somewhat colder & I would be working with potentally more violent clients than the other unit.
I have never worked before, due to ill health (a long history of Depression & anxiety. Both finaly in remission), & I work so much better with a routine.
I'm not a student (though I may go back into p/time education later to complete my art degree so I can take a masters in art therapy - my dream job!) & have spent the past 2 years job hunting, so the fact I've suddenly been offered 2 in a space of a month...it's still sinking in!
Any adivce on which to take?

Well, its really what suits you as a person.
As you have identified, you don't do well without a routine, which could cause difficulty with the bank.
However the 1.5 hour commute for the perm job, can quickly get tiring, and though it pays slightly better, would the travel costs eat that up?
Really the only person who can answer this question, is yourself....
