Care Assistant in SST

Rewarding but poor management
Rewarding to see the child & young adults being able to achieve the unachievable however let down by poor management who can’t see beyond the office.

Good place to work
Fast paced, good place to work. Room for progression, always learning opportunities to succeed and learn more about the job. Each day is different and you feel yourself a sense of achievement.

Not a nice place to work.
Loved the staff. Management were aloof at best and ruled with an iron fist. No phones allowed on site. They said this was because of safeguarding which is not true. They do not want video of how people are treated to be seen. I was punched, had my hair pulled, pinched, kicked, had a toilet barrier slammed onto my shoulder, spat at and had to protect members of the public from the students when they lashed out at children. in the street.

Happy to be part of an organisation that does such great work.
A rewarding but often emotionally and physically challenging job. There is career progression for those that want it. The students timetables are well planned and there is opportunity to go offsite at times. I enjoy my role and feel supported by my manager.

Stressful with poor management
Seashell was once a lovely place to work, over the years it has become increasingly worse due to high staff turn over and more and more work load pressure being passed down to support staff due to poor management with no additional pay.Staff are expected to do long weeks upto 9 days maybe more without a day off, they are expected to do split shifts and doubles within the long week period and are also expected to do overtime to fill in gaps with added pressure due to frequent staff shortages. Management are never seen in houses or seen supporting with residents they rarely if ever come face to face with the residents and only know of them through reading reports and documents. Management only come into houses when something is wrong or want something doing. Staff mental health is incredibly high due to lack of support and sickness is also very high due to the above. Managers throw the on-site counselling service out there as an escape rather than tackle and support the staff individually. No thanks are given for anyone who goes above and beyond it is just always expected from staff no appreciation for hard work just criticism for things that have not been done. Felt more like a babysitting service but as long as boxes were being ticked and reports were glowing everything looks great on paper. No team support from some residential homes “favouritism” amongst staff ment you could do what you want and refuse when you want without consequence when it come to supporting other services or other teams. No o work life balance and no respect or regards to those with families and a life outside of seashell. Would not recommend working here if you value your mental health and enjoy having time with family and friends. The children and young people are the only benefit to this service and it is a shame management is failing them.
