Support Worker/Senior Support Worker in Vale of Glamorgan
on 23 February 2022
Fun job low pay
Great fun company to work for but the pay doesn't reflect the work done or the long un sociable hours. Working every weekend wears you down. Management is great and colleagues are really friendly. The hours are spread over the week. Occasionally only in for a three hours a day.

Great place to work
Fantastic place to work. Great team and fantastic working environment. Rewarding to make a difference with the people you work with. Every day is different.

Fun and fast-passed workplace
Really enjoyed working here. Lots of opportunities for training and development. Busy days but you felt you were making a real difference, so it was worth it. Work life balance was second to none and I didn't feel overworked and really enjoyed coming to work, which made me even more enthusiastic to give new ideas. Firm but fair management, that were professional and were very good with family difficulties I had. Honestly cannot recommend enough and will go back there one day when my circumstances are different.

Good to continue in your career, supportive team.
I enjoyed my team here, and was fully supported and given opportunities to grow and achieve further development in training opportunities, can be stressful but is worth it.

Poor, weak senior management.
Very poor decision making processes by senior management, constantly reviewing work structures and making redundancies every year. Not a progressive company
