Tough but rewarding work - good training and support
This was my first employment within childcare coming from a retail background and overall after 4 months I have been really happy with the company. The hours can be long and the children at times challenging but this I expected. I was nervous about whether I was experienced enough to take on the role but throughout the recruitment process and then onto induction and training I have been inspired and given the confidence to do the job. Due to Covid some of the training programmes have been limited but this has been made up for my in house support from the managers and head office support staff. Due to Covid restrictions inter department work experience has also been limited but this is now scheduled in for the near future. I did make comparisons with pay from a number of companies but overall I found Ethelbert's to be slightly above average and the career progression paths are genuinely available to all.
Pros
Nice working environment, good career prospects, supportive team and management
Cons
Long hours at times but balanced with shift flexibility

Large organisation, rewarding role, encouragement and support to develop
The recruitment and checking process is thorough and the role is explained well throughout this time.Every day is different, providing children with the nurture, care and support that they have not yet experienced can be challenging, however overall watching them progress and develop is extremely rewarding.Training is excellent, and personal development has been encouraged and supported throughout my time here. A very reputable company to work for, I have been employed here for a long time and have no plans to be moving on.
Pros
Being able to see the children progress and develop and leaving positively

Fantastic opportunities & job satisfaction
I have recently have been accepted for the role of a Residential Worker at Ethelbert Children Services, to which they only appear to take on members of staff with a warm, positive and supportive approach to those who want to make a difference to care and ensure a safe, positive environment to these children and young peoples lives. As i have been notified after the probationary period is complete and you have been successful you are then enrolled into the Diploma Level 3 Residential Childcare course, which is brilliant to help you achieve success in your chosen field also along with a six-month induction programme for you to have a further understanding and to gain vital and essential knowledge. Within my interview process at Ethelbert Childrens Services i was made to feel welcome and put at ease by the management team and i am looking forward to starting with Ethelbert Childrens Services and i am proud to say i am starting my career with them.
