Iv worked for Knowsley council for over 20 years Iv enjoy my time at Knowsley council Iv gained experience in all aspects of care I have enjoyed working here but find the sleep overs hard as I don’t sleep well in a strange house they have very good pay scale and it is a good company but I just feel I need a change and would like not to do sleepovers
Very good staff moral
Long hours and sleep overs
Getting up at 5am to get into work for 6, then starting work after knowing which tesm i will be working with for that day, different area can be difficult but some are easy enough to where you will be finished at 2 and going home to enjoy the rest or the day but id rather put the hard work in knowing i was able to go home early it was an easy enough job until it rained and then getting wet pushing heavy bins around but it was easy enough to keep you head down and crack on.
My day starts when I switch on my phone and listen to messages and read texts. I prioritise and respond appropriatly to ensure services run smoothly. Attend team meeting sharing knowledge, discussing sickness/absence and projects for now and the future. Liaise with headteachers, business managers, HR, H&S, training and development teams discussing future needs and current issues, solving problems on the way. check stock levels, machine inventory, ISOQR kitchen and cleaning inspection. The hardest part of the job is recruiting staff. staff retention is excellent. I enjoy the diversity of the working day. Meeting people, parents and pupils discussing dietary needs.
essential car mileage
typical morning would be to read risk assessment about the service user if they have medication locate it sometimes we will organize into tupperware as some tend to leave in a bag which has extra medication that are not needed. follow risk assessment if it says prompt i will ask service user to take if it says administer i will give to service user and log in mar sheet . assist with personal care if required . then make breakfast if service user is unable to make for themselves
manage own time and meet new people
hours have gone down rotas have change
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
