Harbour Support Worker in North East

Horrible place to work.
Manager was very unprofessional. Working staff into the ground. Promises for training which never happened. Chucked in at the deep-end and left to find things out for self. Refugee was to busy with not enough staff. Staff being called in on days off and made to work. No overtime. Have to work then take it back. Environment was awful. To much going on. Also job advertised states higher starting then you find out your just above minimum wage!Rewarding when you help someone but other than that I would never work for harbour again!

Staff turnover is exceptionally high.Complex clients brought in as they recieve extra funding however no extra staff to manage the risk.Management rarely on site.Carrot dangling ie coersing you into doing extra with the promise of dream roles however you are just treat like muck and my mental health suffered hugely. Work load is unreasonable.Asking for support met with criticism and isolation.

A positive experience
I worked for this organisation for a number of years and found it extremely rewarding, especially in the early years when there was more money being put into domestic abuse by local authorities. Yes, wages are low in comparison to others however, given the fact there have been changes in contracts and funding over the years, it leaves management in a difficult position of either paying at a lower rate or losing staff.The work is varied and can be challenging at times/ fast paced. They offer a really good induction and can offer further training should it be needed. Offers lots of opportunity to work with clients with a range of issues and risks. There are opportunities of progression. Management, while it has changed has remained supportive, reactive and dealt with concerns when required. This is not a 9-5 job and in order to do they best for the client group you need to be friendly, hard working and flexible.My experience, while not always stress free, has overall been positive.
