Not enough shifts for HCAs

So after you jump over all of their hurdles. And you finally receive your pin and paid for your uniform, you find there are zero shifts for HCAs. This was over a week!!. And when you do get a job FINALLY coming up for a HCA at a hospital, and you check client notes to check see if your skills match. You phone up and they tell you you can't do it because you have to have additional psych restraint training and be tested for covid every week. This Information was never provoded before starting the job, and them making you think that there are a lot of shifts for HCAs.Staff are nice and supportive on the phones. However, i am disappointed about the information giving on shifts for HCAs.

Pros

Great pay. Staff nice.

Cons

Lack of shifts for HCAs, even if ypu are willing to travel.

Amazing!

Amazing organisation to work for. You are valued and pay rate reflects this. They are massively supportive and I wouldn’t work anywhere else! You won’t get better than SNG!

Great company

What you get out of the Guild is directly related to the amount of effort you put in E.g. 100%= great pay Great training and holiday pay is pro rata with the hours you do

I love working for the SNG. Fantastic company and fantastic team.

I love being part of the SNG, its the most trusted agency within central scoltand. Ive learned lots of skills within this role as constantly undergoing additional training. The hardest part of the job is not getting shifts, if the departments dont have people off sick, you dont get work... The best part is suiting myself when i work.:)

Horrid company.

Awful company to work for. Management were abusive, back handed and degrading. The environment and team dynamic was despicable with senior team members acting unprofessionally, being nasty and bullying each other. I have never been so shocked as to find a group of people who are meant to be in the caring profession behaving as they did. I would never advise anyone to work for this company or for thornbury (their sister company down south) as I have heard very similar things.

Lack of consistency

There are some amazing people in the team however it is balanced out with some people with equally as bad practices. The agency does not seem to consider where they are sending some people and the level of incompetency in some of them.

Good to work for.

Friendly & supportive. Well paid, although staff had to be prepared to travel for work at short notice. However, the company paid petrol money. They also required staff with a minimum of 6 months experience.
