Great organisation to work for

Exciting place to work, loads of oppotunites, strong management structure, informal approaches, life changing for people they work with. Creative, approachable, they listen and are always changing with the times.

Oppressive Management Structure & Unprofessional Practices

Don't bother applying - let alone working - for this group if you want to make a difference to people's lives. SCS are merely interested in perpetuating their jobs. They do this by perpetuating the culture of drug use and chaos within the services. No boundaries 'whatsoever' and service users are giving the longest rope by which to hang themselves.

Great company to work for, leading the way in homelessnes in Scotland. Fast paced environments, trauma training, brilliant manager.

The staff at the Simon community are amazing people, working hard every day to combat social exclusion & homelessness. Nobody is turned away regardless of mental health or addiction issues. There are many service users who go on to lead fulfilling lives within a community. The managers are great, encouraging staff to make decisions and be the best they can be.

Emotionally & mentally draining

While they claim to care, staff are dealing with extreme situations with very little or no guidance or de briefing. They recruit full-time, part-time and relief staff and sadly the training, and commitment from the company is reflected in the pecking order. SCS will promise the world on a plate to suit your needs and think nothing of letting you down. And if your line manager moves on be prepared for a whole new set of rules, rotas and plans because theres no consistency.

Pros

Amazing colleagues

Cons

You're just a cog in the machine.
