Support Worker/Carer in Reculver, Kent

No comment
I worked there just under 2yrs at first but the company bought in a swipe system which caused issues with wages. Also staff was a victim of bullying and harassment

Very stressful
underpaid for expectations for the role, senior management were not supportive, head office appeared to have no clue of staffing needs or support requirements.

Great place to work
I worked for Optima Care for nearly 4 years and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I was well supported by my Line Manager and also the Senior Management Team. I would have stayed if I had not moved away from the area.

Poor leadership and unprofessional management/staff.
What a terrible, terrible company! They seriously need to hire decent and smart managers, (eyes rolling).Optima Care is more interested in profit and lacks interest in staff and service users. There is zero inclusiveness for service users and staff. How can you expect to be a good and caring service if you hire managers who are poor in interpersonal skills and leadership skills?Optima recruitment seriously need to look more for decent leader's than a manager that just has "the qualifications". As clearly, that has never got the company far or the services... What a shambles.

Appalling
Wouldn’t recommend them to anyone. The senior people don’t care about staff or service users, it’s all about the bottom line. They do the absolute minimum to meet the standards. The buildings the service users live in are a disgrace.
