Employment Consultant in Crawley, West Sussex
on 17 September 2020
Decidedly Average
Private companies that register themselves charities and absorb outsourced contracts like they’re going out of fashion are often riddled with issues. I was part of the progenitor to what is now Shaw Trust when I was a trainer and advisor for The Careers Development Group (CDG) and supported the operations of the Crawley branch of this company across 4 DWP employment contracts. CDG merged sometime in 2015 with Shaw Trust and simply became ‘Shaw Trust’. How one could review the company depends on your own experiences. Many would find lots to promote Shaw Trust, other would only regurgitate bile when recalling their time with the company. I am somewhere in between. I could rant on forever about the Business Managers; some of them genuinely nice, whereas others were strict disciplinarian tyrants who would abuse you due to their own desperation to achieve targets. I encountered both at my long-term stint with the Trust. I worked simultaneously as an Employment Coach and an Employment Advisor on the Flexible New Deal, Work Programme and Work Choice contracts. The latter was actually great fun as I was required to travel to different centres and carry out job search/employer engagement appointments with job seekers, the Trust paid for my train fares with Click Travel. I ended on a high and enjoyed this final placement on Work Choice and was given a fairly big redundancy package. Prior to this however I was churned up in the meat grinder that was Work Programme with a deluge of customers to see, sessions to run and admin to complete that nearly saw the death of me! I nearly had a breakdown, and/or nearly quit my job! Though there was support in place with regards to my wellbeing, the pressure to achieve job start targets was unrelenting and I only just about scraped my way across the finish line, whereas some of my former colleagues collapsed through stress. This was not necessarily the fault of the company, more the appalling rudeness of a couple of the Business Managers I encountered, some of them still with the Trust. Though at the time I disagreed with the initiatives the company tried, working with Shaw Trust was light years ahead of the truly horrendous experience I had with Maximus People Services, that was the next company I worked for! But that’s another story. Shaw Trust do have a proper framework for delivering a contract and organise their staff hierarchy correctly. They also have dedicated health and wellbeing support workers, when the contracts get intense, and there is the scope for professional certification which you can study for alongside your daily duties. This is mainly due to the fact that they actually invest a noticeable amount of money into their centres and recruit the correct number of staff to manage the significant workload that comes in. Again, it can be horrendous! But it can also be great fun sometimes working for the Trust. Even if they’re hardly a jewel in the crown, they’re still one of the best in the sector. If I were able to re-join I would probably do so.
Case Manager in Norfolk and Suffolk
on 28 January 2021
Job not what was sold
Be prepared to have your confidence and any self esteem blown to smithereens.......Hideous role; do not apply! Managed by team leaders that base their management style on daily undermining and bullying. Targets are set that are often unachievable. They set you up to fail and then comes more humiliation and undermining. Unfortunately Covid makes this easier as online Teams calls make it the perfect opportunity for this behaviour. No people management skills and zero communication skills. Staff turnover is horrendous. Staff constantly leaving through stress and unhappiness. Saying that those left behind are very supportive of one another and the environment they have to work in. The role isn’t what was sold. Huge amounts of data entry, manipulation of data and very repetitive. If you genuinely have an interest in criminal justice or want a role that makes a difference to someone’s life; this isn’t it. This isn’t about supporting and helping ex offenders back into the community but manipulating data and hitting targets to please senior management. There are other organisations that support the CF03 work so would strongly advise working for one of these instead.

Poor management
On the whole a great a great work force, kind caring and have a real passion for the job and the students they work with every day.However management are too top heavy, everyone trying to prove their role is necessary. Not qualified to carry out basic procedures and make staff feel undervalued. The salary is poor (minimum wage) and if your face fits you will be fine.

It is a good place to work
A very enjoyable organisation to work with. They are across the UK, working to help disadvantaged people into employment. It can be inspiring work to do.
Administrator in London, Greater London
on 24 August 2020
Discrimination!
BE AWARE bunch of discriminations from management they seem to be a charity for disabled people only to degrade and withdrawn someone who has disability and not get shortlisted. I applied for a post unreasonably scrapped me out from the process with a predjuice misperception when I was good enough to get processed. If you don’t know the company is fake and the help they say. The charity itself it’s all fake towards disabled people is all false terms. It’s just a scandal to exaggerate and create more awareness of jobs with false hope to benefit their own agenda. They wanna show they support disabled people and value them when actually it’s just to create a organisation so people find work to fit their own agenda and make a organisation with false values and ethic showing they stand by when they don’t. Their value and ethic has no value behind it.
