RCP in Bedford, Bedfordshire

Fantastic company and young people
I have worked for Esland for over a year now. Within that year I have seen changes but positive ones. I have enjoyed working in some other houses to support but I love the home I am in. I have a good manager and a great team around me. The young people we support are challenging but it’s amazing watching their progress and achievements. Esland provide good training and encourage us as the staff on the floor to develop and push ourselves. I really enjoy working here and want to develop within this company!
IT Apprentice / Administrator in Belper, Derbyshire

Fantastic Start to a Slow/Sad Decline
I will be honest and say very supportive for my apprenticeship, and loved the role / people at the time. However over a year later, with so many changes at head office, people leaving, change in senior roles constantly etc, the culture has changed drastically. For example...I have always given 110% for the company, but with new office politics and other factors made it much harder, and generally felt mentally drained. There seems to be too much of a blame culture which sadly forced me to look elsewhere after a very promising start with Esland and high hopes of management. The main reason for leaving was starting an apprenticeship in one area, but not being able to continue doing that type of work which is why I originally applied for the apprenticeship in the first place. Therefore I felt management had not taken this onboard and forced my hand to be able to help elsewhere. I tried to stay and fight for the company I once loved and worked so much for, as their were positives to fight for like my amazing former colleagues, unfortunately, management ideologies changed and things became progressively worse, feeling like I was taken advantage of, it was not meant to be.

Esland do not value the staff & poor management
Lack of supportExpected to work, drive an continue as normal with zero sleep after been awake over 30+ hours working with no relief. Inexperienced management. High expectations but not the resources to deliver as you can only do so much in the hours of a day. You don’t get paid when needed to stay longer to complete incomplete paperwork due to incidents etc. So much continuous training but no hours given to complete so always behind. Long hours with the contract favouring the business for example, sleeps compulsory when needed but not contracted to guarantee you any. No relief if anyone calls in sick, you are unable to go home until you arrange cover. Poor placement matching as they just want “Kids in beds” as it’s a business & it all comes down to money.

Shocking place to work
The company tries to work on morals and it really doesnt pay struture is all over the place and if your face fits your in but if it doesnt then you will not get anywhere in this company .Totally incompetent managers with little or no experience with too many chiefs and not enough Indians. No support from higher management
Regional Manager in Various

Progressive company
Since joining Esland there has been a real drive from senior managers to change processes to enable and promote better working environments and processes for staff. There has recently been a re-structure which has given employees the opportunity to progress to different positions. The Registered Managers have a real drive and focus for providing high quality care to the young people that live in the homes and this is great to see. There is a culture of shared ownership and a 'no blame' culture which is positive. The work can be fast paced however there are a number of support functions within the company to assist with this.
