Lacking skills and quality

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was employed by this organisation as a Training Manager and whilst there is a large pot of money to invest in staff and resources, it is spent in the wrong places. The focus is placed on quantity rather than quality and lies are told by senior managers to give an impression things are much more controlled than they actually are. I worked in two contract areas during my time and both were an accident waiting to happen.

Very stressful

I worked a Regional Trainer in Health and Social Care. Other staff were great and supportive but changed often as well as the management. Didn't feel like we were valued and a lot was demanded including evening work to meet the deadlines because the travelin was taking away much needed admin time. OK when you don't have children but otherwise undoable.


Good salary, good mileage


Changing management, long hours

No appreciation or work/life balance

This company believe in using a stick rather than a carrot. They are very KPI driven. Individual people are lovely. Case loads are very high as staff don't stay.

Job description does not match the reality off what actually is expected from employees.

Extremely stressful with no support. Unrealistic expectations regarding workload, targets and KPIs. Management are very much dictators. Constantly increasing expectations and workload.Very unhappy working environment.


Holidays at Christmas


ridiculous targets, no support. All job perks have been taken away

Supportive work place.

I've only been here a little while but I feel very supported from the management and colleagues. The pay for the area is well above average. The job itself comes with a steep learning curve but it is a challenging and rewarding job.

If I could rate zero, I would

If you want to work for a company that is full of empty promises, doesn't value their staff, discriminates against their staff and back stabs and bad mouths their staff then this is an ideal place for you. For any normal human being, I would avoid at all costs.

Nice autonomous training job.

Good place to work if you like to manage your own time and enjoy 121 teaching. Lots of training provided. DBS check required. Working in a range of environments with learners of varied abilities and motivations. Targets can be hard to attain.


Free refreshments, laptop, phone etc


Somewhat lonely.

Great place to work

This company is a great place to work. The balance for work and home life is great. You are left to manage your own time with full support from Management. The management were very helpful and understanding. Can get stressful due to lots of changes taking place due to the introduction of the levy.


Flexibility. Aproachabe management.

Fair and Lovely place to work for

I have learnt a lot more business skills then I already knew and everyday I would learn something new enhancing my skills, I would go through emails and do all tasks that are needed. From then I would work throng projects of organising meeting and book travel and accommodation. I would answer different enquires and answer phone calls and dealing with them. The hardest part of the job would be not know every little thing about the job when I first started but I enjoyed learning new things a long the way and help improve my skills.The management was really nice and understanding and having the balance between management and being a friend. My co-workers were all lovely people and all were nice and willing to help whenever you needed. The most enjoyable part of it all was learning new things and being independent and working on projects.


Being independent, being able to ask someone for help, having a lovely understanding manager.


The pay

Office Manager and PA with ever changing duties

A typical day starts and ends with nothing typical! Firstly, I check diaries and emails and then work through and prioritise duties that need actioning and planning.


Being able to help and assist with various and wide ranging jobs as well as day to day duties.
