Care Assistant in Stourbridge
Initially a great company to work for with a good manager and care coordinator. Sadly the management team changed and bullying crept in. If your face doesn’t fit here, you will be treated badly. No work life balance. My availability was ignored and I was made to feel guilty when I said I wasn’t available to do work. Even on my weekend off I would be guilted into working.

Friendly and helpful team
The management give me all the tools and encouragement I need to do well in my job. I am very pleased with the thorough level of training that's provided, which helps me know that the workplace really values quality of care. Admittedly, I've started off with fewer hours than I expected when I applied for the role, but I've since learnt that it takes some time to build up regular customers, which is understandable. Also, whenever I have any questions or concerns, the management are very receptive and transparent, which helps my trust in the company. Overall, the workplace is friendly and the work itself is lovely.

Great place to work
I’ve worked in other companies where there are far too many managers. Helping hands has a “team work” ethic which I enjoy and all the managers give constructive feedback to improve oneself and give work accordingly. Overall good company.

Looking for a care job, try else where
This is the only company not worth recommending specifically Richmond branch. Their trainings are repeated (you'll do online and offline during recruitment, a waste of time)-i hated it, they will force you to finish online training at a given time to suit their interests even when their system says otherwise, especially if CQC is on the calendar, their rotas are never staple, you can have a client on your rota one minute and the next minute client is off, and they don't even let you know about the changes, very disrespectful and inconsiderate management, they think they have your life in their hands and there's nothing you can do about that. Management is discriminative-they've got favourite carers they give loads of hours and the least favourite go without hours just because they have no obligation to give you work. When they need you, they sound very nice and friendly-(watch out for that dear applicant). If you are looking for reasonable hours of work, Try other Richmond care companies because you wont get that here - don't waste your time going through the lengthy recruitment processes and training, its a waste of time-do these with other companies. bottom line, APPLY TO OTHER COMPANIES. to HH you can do better - just get the right management team, Achene is the best to keep as branch Manager am sure there will be surprising developmental progress.
I enjoyed working with Helping Hands, I had a wide range of clients with different needs and focuses.The office is relaxed and approachable.Long days are the hardest part, you may only have 5 or 6 visits for the day but you could start and 6am and not finish until 10pm
