Support Worker in London, Greater London
on 22 May 2022
Great place to get experience
The organisation has great values and was able to work alongside some very dedicated individuals. The service users make the job so rewarding and there are opportunities to expand your knowledge base and become more competent in your role.

poor management and constant bullying
None of the managers have management experience. There is no management support and all training is given online. I worked in MSRT for 3 years and had 6 supervisions. Constant rotation of staff as they burn out or are bullied into leaving. It's an unhappy work place culture
Domestic Abuse Support Worker in London, Greater London

Hestia
Always extremely understaffed, expected to do way more then pay grade. Not supported by management. Senior management never come on to site and supper unsupportive. Different rules for everyone, staff are expected to take on extra work load and then no support offered. Extremely poor and unorganised organisation who do very little to support both staff and women within the refuges. Staff turn over is also extremely high, rarely staff will complete probation. You are also expected to do 9 months worth of probation training completing work books etc which is another work load on top of your normal work load, if you are over worked they expect you to complete in your own time.

Extremely overworked and extremely underpaid
This company is a joke. The bill pay is awful and the work is highly stressful and unrewarding.There is little chance of progression. As although new positions are advertised. The position has already been earmarked for someone else. They have unrealistic service user targets. And they are more focused on KPRs and completing reports/spreadsheets for commissioners. Staff were encouraged to write false information about hours spent with client and work done. So that it could be justified on the Friday reports spreadsheets. If you care more about clients, than fake or exaggerating performance indicator’s. Then stay away from this place.

Great team to work with
Great place to gain experience. Friendly office environment and great support from the team. The hardest part of then job is you were expected to do manage your workload and tight deadlines. Opportunities to learn and grow, lots of trainings available. Most enjoyable part of the job is its is very engaging.
