Community & Social Service
Working remotely on the JETS contract is good as it offers flexible WFA advantages. There's a high turnover of staff which is typical in employability and Shaw Trust annoyingly employ people from all manner of industries to do a job which requires a level of empathy many don't have, particularly managers. Managers are focused on targets, piling pressure on where they can to front line staff without understanding nuances of the job. A so so job I would rate 2.5 stars
The people there are very friendly and easy to get on with them. There's lots of things you can do . Using the tile, stocking up, tiding things and rearranged the shelves. Helping others.
Poor work life balance , compounded by poor workflow management , reactionary management style . Regular disrespectful behaviour from junior and middle managers , frequent displays of power plays and group belittling of staff
Not a great place to work. Unattainable targets. Training almost non-existent. Poor management who have their favourites. Pay is reasonable for the job. Large turnover of staff mainly due to stress.
Volunteer not paid position, helped me build my confidence after years out of work, enjoyed spending time with the team, learnt a lot and lots of tea!! Enjoyed every minute
