5. Career expectations

Recently qualified radiographers were asked how important certain career attributes were to them in terms of their expectations of a career in radiography. The most important expectations are job satisfaction, enjoyment, job security and skills and knowledge development. The two themes mentioned by more than one person in the free-text responses are a good location and a good working environment.

Radiographers who qualified in 2013 are very positive in their assessment of their first year working as a qualified radiographer: 86% said it is completely or mostly true that their career is so far consistent with their expectations. In the free text responses three radiographers commented on how much they enjoyed their job and three radiographers commented on a lack of career progression opportunities.
