Parkside

It was a community acton programme, there was no pay and it was voluntary. It lasted only for roughly 3 weeks so there wasn't much experience to gain.

Great place

Parkside is a great place to work. I previously worked at Parkside for a number of years and i came back because of the company and the people. The job itself is fast paced and can have its stressful moments along with its banter and fun times.

Fun, uplifting!

Initial thought - great culture, great service users, active timetable. Support Workers aren't paid sickness or holiday pay. Management do get this though. Support workers have to work bank holidays whilst management off. Support workers don't get lunch breaks, sometimes you run out of time supporting SU's with their food that you miss yours as the next activity starts Rigid timetables Most enjoyable part is supporting the great service users! Even if a client is 1:1, you are still asked to support more when out in the community, against risk assessments and guidelines! Be careful :)

Pros

Nice hours when in the day service

Cons

Clicky management, supervisions when your in trouble

Productive job with a good working environment

Parkside is a charity with a great working environment, and amazing employees, the clients can be stressful at times, however when you see the change you have made in their lives the stress is no longer important, the management are supportive and always around to help.

Pros

Satisfaction of helping others

Cons

Can be stressful with some of the clients.
