Ok if your face fits

Previous management were friendly and supportive. Higher management were not and were far from helpful. Poor pay compared to other places and poor access to equipment needed with operations manager often saying it’s too expensive. The majority of the team were fantastic and provided outstanding care but were exhausted from the long hours we worked and being short staffed often. Senior management were often stirring the pot within the home causing a divide in the team especially between the day and night staff.

Pros

Residents, £1 meals, management and team

Cons

Senior management, short staffed, low pay, long hours

Investors in staff providing jobs with a real sense of fulfilment

I've worked for the company for many years ,and in that time they have invested and supported my on my career pathway, from care assistant to registered manager.The company ethos is one of family , they have supported me through difficult personal circumstances as they do all staff.Job security is very important to me ,and this is something that the company offers.Working for a charity gives a real sense of fulfilment knowing that the work we provide makes a difference to others.

Pros

Very rewarding work, supportive company, excellent benefits, job security, excellent career progression.

Poor senior managment

Lovely residents and some staff are lovely too, however the higher management at Lillian Faithfull care are disgraceful and do not care about there staff or their feelings. They are arrogant and all they want to do is boss people around, not interested in giving praise to them who deserve it. They do not deal with concerns in accord to what they should be either, prioritizing the wrong things also. Such a shame. Also talk about basically blackmailing staff work to ensure there is the correct, legal amount of staff working whilst CQC is visiting... They should do a surprise visit, they would then be shocked!!!

Pros

£1 lunches

Cons

Unprofessional senior management

When you want to work for the company where you will be only a number not an indyvidual unique person who cares for residents - this is the place for you!

Pros

Cons

treating staff as a number not indyvidually

Inclusive and inviting workplace, compassionate management and opportunity to thrive

Lovely place to work, live and visit! Happy atmosphere with staff going above and beyond to deliver a first class service to its residents; families and staff. The current Home Manager is compassionate, welcoming and genuine. He treats all members of staff with a friendly and personal but professional manner.Everyday I learnt new information from either staff or residents, with good staff-resident relations encouraged. Management are on top of their game at all times and each resident is taken care of with all their individual needs considered.

Pros

Hot or cold meals for £1pd, Incentives, Good Atmosphere, Noticeable Gratitude

Cons

Stressful at times, mentally and physically challenging

Care Assistants Nights

Plenty of support and you actually see the Management unlike other corporate providers. Nobody is perfect but at least they listen here. Glad I joined :)

Care work

No support given by management to night team.. Company portray they care but no different to any other care company profit before people. Training opportunities aren't offered to night team.. Lots of blame within this company poor communication.

what i learned and the most enjoyable part of the job.

To me the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the good impact i have on the residents of the home and seeing how just spending a little time to ask how they are doing and feeling can change their mood for the day. I have learnt good communication skills and how to put things across clearly. I have also done first aid training.

Bad management

Management are not good. They are looking how to make money and they don't care about employees well being. Very bad organisation of work. It is charity but this is a family business as there is a wife ( director ), a husband ( handyman ), a son ( manager ) and daughter-in-law ( receptionist ). Well... All in the family...

Pros

Nice building and that's about it

Cons

Everything. Don't go to work for them.

Caring, professional and enjoyable place to work.

As part of the finance team I work on the purchase ledger dealing with the companies that supply us. I help to ensure that we are being correctly invoiced so that we can make timely, accurate payments and keep an eye on costs. I also deal with resident accounts for their purchases. I enjoy all aspects of my job from the great team that I work with to the encouragement given to learn more skills as well as working on new ideas to help with process. It is rewarding to feel as part of the LFC family all pulling in the same direction.

Great Charity to work for

A great Charity to work for where work life balance is well thought out. There is a far higher ratio of Carers to Residents within the Homes when compared to others in the market. Competitive salaries with year on year pay increases as well as a other benefits are part of the Lilian Faithfull ethos.

Pros

Competitive pay, subsided staff meals, death in service benefits as well as many others

Tiring long shifts unappreciated by management

Always under staffed apart from when visited by cqc then the management are tripping over each other to help out on the floor. Appearance of the home is more important than employees. There is no support for the employee's by management left feeling like a general dogs body. No communication whatsoever. No career progression here if you want to progress don't bother with lilian faithful. To many chiefs not enough indians

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours and unappreciated
