Learned new systems, fantastic management team. Workplace culture was extremely professional.
Hardest part of the job was dealing with on going changes in the workplace.
The job was enjoyable and included travelling to packages across the north of England.
Working with a fantastic team of people that your genuinely like makes work that much better of an experience. Really felt like I could go to anyone in the company to ask a question and know i'd get a helpful and supportive response. Workload is quite high and fast paced but well suited to the way i'd prefer to work and i'm given the autonomy to plan my own workday/week which I really appreciate but I can reach out for manager support if i'm struggling with anything.
A great place to work with a very supportive management team that really care, both about the clients and employees. I was really encouraged in my professional development and given a nice working environment.
Enjoyed the charity fundraising activities too!
Having come from a care company who provided personal care support to clients, I expected a similar training programme, working environment and office relations as my ex-employers had offered. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
Pulse offers second to none training in all aspects of client support, in addition to the possibility of further developing one’s training in fields such as ventilation and end of life care. I had zero experience in complex care when I started and the thought of tracheostomy and PEG care summoned a great deal of anxiety! Nevertheless, the personalised training consisted of both theory and practical application of the knowledge acquired, which played a huge role in establishing me as a competent support worker as I was able to obtain a solid idea of what I would expect in practice. Moreover, Pulse offered a two day paid shadowing shift that allowed me to familiarise myself with the client, the routine and care needs of the client, whilst having an able support worker to seek advice from specific to the client. My opinions were sought by the office, therefore allowing me to consider whether the care package was right for me or not. It is also important to note, Pulse also provides recognised qualifications in areas such as medicine administration etc.
For those that are studying a healthcare based degree, I could not recommend Pulse more. As a trainee Pharmacist, my work allows me to work very closely with patients as well liaise with other healthcare professionals such as nurses, pharmacists and OT’s. The Manchester office has a few nurses who welcome questions and discussion – something I have taken full advantage of! Plus they’re absolutely brilliant. I was also offered an opportunity to assist the Business Manager in strengthening the training programme which aimed to reduce transcribing errors - it's good to know they appreciate the specialities of their workers.
Office Support and Administration:
It is reassuring to know there is excellent support available from the office in the form of care managers and in my experience, more importantly, a clinical nurse to whom questions can be directed to. I have found my queries have been dealt with immediately or on the day. The staff at the office are friendly, supportive and understanding. The Manchester team in particularly exemplary. For me, the imperative thing is that I have been able to mold my work around my studies. Such flexibility is difficult to come by coupled with a good wage and a varied and large amount of work availability. In terms of progression, I was offered a management position not long into my employment which emphasises Pulse’s attitude to good work ethic. I have never had any pay issues with Pulse. The best thing is they email staff a copy of their wage slip and send a text informing the employee when the wage will be deposited into the employees account.
I guess the most important thing about Pulse as a company is that they actually care about their clients and staff. Unfortunately, in today’s day and age, that is difficult to come by, particularly in the care industry. Through the company, I was able to support a client and his family from a difficult time right till the end. There is nothing more honourable and humbling than that.
All in all, a great company, great work availability and wage - and great people to work with!
Pulse Community Healthcare have been a fantastic organisation to work for in my short time (1 year) with the business. They have been a supportive and forward thinking employer and have given me opportunities to progress in both my personal development and career development.
This is the first company that I have worked for that is truly passionate about making a difference and improving peoples quality of life. It is such a great thing to be a part of and to be proud of what you do.
