Registered Manager in Cumbria

Hard work, stressful but the most rewarding role in the world
AWW values all of its employees. Yes changes have been made and will continue to be made as they strive to be the best for thier children they look after and also their employees. People at times struggle with change and this might not be the right role for them. I've worked for AWW for 12 months . Over the last 12 months it's been hard , but if you speak up and ask for support someone will give you just that . They have a genuine passion for changing the lives of children and creating a positive journey for them. It's not an easy role but you get out what you put in. As an employee your voice matters and they listen to each and everyone of us to make working at Aww the best experience. Yes the role Is difficult and that will never change but the good times over shadow the bad and the difference you can make to our children's lives is incredible. The little things matter

Exhausting/more home care than outdoors
No work life balance due to travelling. They advertise for 1 place and employ you in a job miles away. Your at work on the morning of your first day off so it’s half a day by time your home. It’s not so much an outdoor activity as it says on the tin so to speak. You spend most your shifts home caring watching Netflix finding things to do in the home. colleagues are all really nice, supportive and helpful.

Great place to work.
I love working here. I feel supported and valued by the company however some managers may not have the time to speak about any concerns. You can progress if you want the extra responsibility

Fantastic company! Caring and incredible management
I had the best year working for a wilderness way you are constantly supported and cared for giving you the best support you need to work with vulnerable young people which in some cases could be emotionally draining and demanding. I love this company and would still be there now if I didn’t have to relocate down south. I miss them.
