Smooth transition from first city nursing to retain healthcare. I am sceptical at first but as it was taken over I felt better. The staff team are great, the office staff are lovely. Managers are approachable but sometimes very busy. I love my job, no day is the same. I wake up and look forward to my day, knowing I am going to help someone less fortunate than myself. Retain is a great company, I do their home care and agency and find pleasure in both. The staff all seem friendly and I am always made to feel welcome at the homes I attend. The director has looked after us during the Covid period and made sure we are safe and we never ran out of PPE. He even gave us all a certificate to show his gratitude 🙏 towards his teams. Really looking forward to the future with retain and hoping 2021 will be amazing for everyone but mostly the people I care for. I would totally recommend Retain Healthcare Cheltenham! Choose your shifts when you work, unless your like me a workaholic :) you won’t regret joining.
Pros
Support, flexibility
Cons
Work life balance, Covid

I have worker within care for a number of years. Unfortunately my experience with Retain wasn’t pleasurable or enjoyable. The managers are unapproachable, and unprofessional. I am saddened to say that it seems like profits are put before care. I felt like a number to call upon to help with the shortness of staff.
Cons
Felt guilty when I didn’t pick up short notice shifts

Friendly, professional, efficient, they listen to what you want & need. Approachable & very different from other agencies that I've worked for. Pay is a little lower than other agencies but other things compensate for this. Lovely people.
