Please avoid
Pay is great, culture is toxic. No clear structure at the company. Senior management don’t listen when concerns raised. Everything is all smiles but concrete & drastic action is needed to address lack of HR & compliance department. Clear reason why family run companies do not work.

Pretty poor place
You go to an interview and get offered the position, you do training after training (unpaid and not the best) then after all that time you have spent invested they then tell you that things will be sent off to the head office and will let you know if you have the position, bit of a red flag moment and makes you question the recruitment process as it seems very misleading.Mileage is poor considering the way you are travelling.Pay rate looks generous but when weighed up in regards to the amount of mileage you do to get to a visit then no it’s not worth it on the whole.Then there is your time in between visits where you don’t get paid, so you have 6 visits all set one after the other, impossible I know due to travelling so you spend those 3 hours on visits and get paid for them but the other hour and half travelling you don’t get paid and the mileage doesn’t come into effect until you have reached your first visit, in my opinion it’s not worth it!!So if visits are close to one another expect to receive very little mileage back. The training is not very sufficient especially if you don’t have a background in care which is very poor!They are constantly trying to cover shifts so there’s no point telling them when hired when you can and can’t work because you will just get bombarded with phone calls anyway.Oh and if you leave don’t expect to get paid what they owe you either.The people who have set this company up need to take a good look in to things and question why they have a high turn over of staff.
