Our working hours vary from service to service and person to person as rotas are designed around the needs of the people we support. Due to the nature of the work, this isn't typically a 9-5, monday to friday role but there are a variety of shift patterns and shift types available so this can really suit people that need some flexibility in their working life (early shifts, late shifts, waking night shifts, sleep ins etc). Whilst our rotas are typically person centred our managers do try to accommodate life, and work with colleagues to flex where possible. Speak to the Hiring Manager of a particular vacancy to discuss hours and flexible working options.
Long hours, constantly break the 11 hour consecutive rest working time directive that employees are legally entitled to.
Horrendous hours... I was expected to do a 23 hour shift including a sleep over even though they knew I had childcare issues and didn’t agree to those hours. Was expected to work all Xmas and Xmas day, don’t even get double time paid. Needless to say... I left. Just left on my own to fend for myself with no experience.
Very long shifts..underpaid...no support...bullied into taking on extra shifts..worked like a dog treated even worse
Extremely long hours which knowingly to management can lead to stress. So it's obvious it's a breach of health and safety. How on earth can staff concentrate. Their health will suffer. Low pay doesn't help either. Management are supposed to be supportive obviously not
Mostly 12/13 hour shifts with an hour break if you get it! Over worked and definitely underpaid !!!!
Absolute rubbish to work and silly hours and. Ooh the management. Are absolute. Rubbish. Under valued and staff in there own fantasy world and the clients have more brains than this company
13 hours per day with 10 minutes for a sandwich and glass of water then back on the chain gang.
Excellent they always say that the s/u comes first but the managers and new RM are excellent at supporting staff and ensuring work life balance.
Not very sociable, staff are over worked.
