Challenging yet rewarding place to work.

Working at Community Links was quite a hard job at times due to the nature of the service users we worked with. It could be quite challenging, however the support received from colleagues and managers was amazing. They were always there to help or just to listen if you needed to offload about a particularly stressful or worrying event. Overall a great place to work- just need thick skin!

Pros

Great team and collaborative culture.

Cons

Challenging

One of the best places I've worked

Great characters, good policies, good working practices and they have fun! Benefits outshone the pay but it was still pretty comparable to other places.

I enjoyed working here. I was well looked after and the staff were very committed to their work. I took part in CPD which has helped me to secure further work

Excellent place to work

A first class organisation. Really look after employees through regular supervision with good management and a there's a feeling that you could speak to anyone within the organisation (operational managers, Chief exec) if necessary. Very well paid which is fair as it is demanding work, but overall one of the best mental health charities i've worked for.

Good company

Learnt a lot, its now just my time to move on. Good team around me, supportive CEO, management at my particular place of work lacked authority. Loved the clients, wish we could offer them more.

Good part time work on an as and when basis

A worthwhile job supporting vulnerable young people to access community facilities. A chance to help change young lives. The most enjoyable part being the relationships that you develop with the young people and their families.

Pros

Fantastic role and staff

I enjoyed my time with the Community Links family, unfortunately i had to leave due to ill health. I worked independently with a fantastic group of clients, all actively seeking work and training; looking to move on in their lives.

Community Links

When I worked for Community Links they offered a very generous salary compared to other companies with similar roles. They also offered generous holiday entitlement, and encouraged team building regularly.

Outstanding job for the community

I started at this organisation as a Volunteer folding letters. I needed to give something back to the community and that was my opportunity. A couple of months later there was a job opportunity and I applied for it. This was the start of a rewarding job with excellent people at all levels. Progression and personal development was the paramount of this amazing journey.

Good job, would benefit from opportunity to move up outside of direct management, ie specialist roles

Community based work, can be a challenge meeting targets but support is available via team and managers. Good training and staff welfare budget. Learning the areas clients use and live in I found enjoyable

Pros

Training, Annual leave, Welfare budget

Cons

Uncertainty around funding
