Mixed bag

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

It's a great place work

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 people management culture , intimidation and perception discrimination

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

Only interested in targets.

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.
