Support Manager in Norwich, Norfolk

Reasonable starting salary but terrible management and work culture.
I lasted 6 months at Shaw Trust after being sold on the belief that i would be able to help people and make a difference in their lives and helping them move back into employment. After the initial training (which was good and thorough) things changed quite quickly. Everything became about hitting targets and getting people into work. The humanitarian approach was firmly gone and the levels of stress and pressure we were put under was awful. People were constantly going off sick with stress and anxiety and the management just pass on their own pressure from the hierarchy. So basically the stress just filters down to the bottom which is the support managers. It is sold as a worthwhile job but basically you are a recruitment consultant

Unfair pay terms
If you are brand new to Shaw Trust then you’ll earn more than someone that has TUPE. They’ll offer you a contract to work more hours for the same money you’re on already.The IPS service is a joke. Your meant to have no more than 25 clients but caseloads are massive, like 45 plus. So you can’t provide a good service but you are expected to fully provide a service to all clients.Staff turnover is high. If you are all about results and nothing about clients then this is the place for you. It’s a joke!

Great career progression
The roles are very target driven & there are targets that are set but they are achievable if you work hard. Sadly not everyone is suited to the roles or can do the job. This then brings people to leave. Teamwork is great and colleagues support one another well. The company offer lots of adhoc training and really push you to further yourself.

Great training but targets unachievable
The training provided is great and home working works really well with this job, however you are expected to achieve unachievable targets or you’re out which is why turnover is high. There is no flexibility with these targets and you can do all you can and follow compliance 100% but at the end of the day it’s down to the participants you are supporting to put effort in.
