Ex employee

New Bradley hall has suffered bad management and unfair treatment of its staff for the last 4 years and high level of turn over due to this. If you enjoy good mental health do not ruin it by taking a post here.No help from management when problems arise and a serious blame culture is in place here when things go wrong. Manager treats staff as disposable and know several fires at the drop of a hat through no fault of their own to cover up faults of others.

Pros

Fair salary for a care job

Cons

No job security. Mistreated. Understaffed for levels of care required

Not all it seems

Overall A very below average company who overate their work ethics! Over streched workload under staffed & continuos high agency useage. Salary is fair which is appealling but you sure have your work cut out so be mindful as not all as it seems! Have a dangerous HIGH turn over of Management & staff in the last few years which is major red flags for any considering applicants. I WOULD NOT RECCOMEND THIS COMPANY AS A EMPLOYER.anyone

Nice place to work

A very hard working company, a housing association with nearly two thousand households which uses its core business of providing homes to expand into other industries including community regeneration, work programmes, care home provision and development of new homes and other buildings including the brand new Blackheath library.
