Rewarding job but with management challenges

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very rewarding job having positive impact directly to learners and seeing them grow and flourish through registered managers role. Pay is well below standard and results in high staff turnover and burnout . But positive steps put into place adressing this with some extra support being put into place. Work life balance off, due to unpaid on calls expected to be taken by registered managers and frequently contacted out of hours on non essentially things plus alot of changes to rota and unscheduled sleep rota system . Management approachable but not willing to make changes quickly or review system to a mutual beneficial outcome. Overall a good place to grow and progress within but wages needs improvement and company needs to better understand the need for a better work life balance .

Pros

Direct positive influence . Progression witin rapid. Learner focussed culture. Staff turnover

Cons

Unrotaed sleep system, Sub par wages and work benefits, Unproductive managment response to issue and dealing with concerns

Outstanding and person centred care and excellent partnership working

I have been an employee at the company for a number of years and i have progressed with my own personal development and they have a robust recruitment and induction training programme .. Its been a tough year during Covid and have had excellent support from management to guide us and support staff during this uncertain time to ensure the young people we support are safe… Nothing is too much trouble and if you need support management of the homes and senior management have an open door policy .. Everyone has moans and groans in all all jobs but if people stop moaning and work as a team it makes everyone happier… Feeling very honoured to be part of a outstanding company and look forward to a postive and brighter future. Homes are personal to the people that live here and the quality of accommodation is excellent staff are fantastic and guys are great ..

Pros

Appraisal system annually, good stable management team, free gym membership, supportive during Covid 19

Probably the best company I have worked for

Working with the young people is great. The training and support from management is excellent you couldn't ask for anything better. The employment benefits are good the management really care about the staff team there is even free gym membership. Yes the work is hard but you get out what you put in - that is care work! I have learnt a lot over the years I have worked there and wouldn't want to do anything else . A great job

Perfect job

I started as a support worker and have promoted to lead support. The training is second to none. The management are very supportive and their door is always open. I have always felt very supported and I work with wonderful colleagues and the people I support are just fab. It is a hard job and can be stressful but the rewards make it all worth it

what a team!

The team at condover college make coming to work a joy, no matter who you are you feel supported. Supporting people with PMLD is hard work but when you see the dedication and enthusiasm from the staff here you can't help but smile. There is always an opportunity to share your views and opinions and you feel these are listened to. The company offers great career progression and has a great "grow your own" scheme, training up great tutors and fantastic lead LSAs.

Supportive team and amazing students

As a recent employee at Condover College, I have found the entire staff team supportive and caring. The stresses that are inevitable in this form of work are shared and no one is ever left feeilng that they are alone. The common goal is to provide our learners with the best possible experience and to provide them with choice and opportunities that may be denied them elsewhere. The students are the key and although there may be pressure and stressful moments the team work as one to ensure their comfort, enjoyment and learning. I have worked across a wide range of educational facilities and find the atmosphere and support here to be of the highest quality.

Pros

Amazing staff team

Cons

May need to think outside of box
