You are promised one thing but when it doesn’t fit in with what management want then your hours will change, even in the middle of a care round you will be swapped and changed.
If you have a good locality manager then you’ll have a more positive experience but if you get one who doesn’t want to pull their weight then you will find yourself working all the hours under the sun with no say in it and your personal mobile will be hotter than hot on days off with calls asking you to pick up extra shifts.
Great compared to my previous jobs in care with other providers. 7 -7.5 hour shifts with a two week regular rota. No nights if you work days and vice versa . alternative weekends off. Always overtime available if you want
I have been employed with sclerosis since 2006 and I always have had support and answers for all my queries when needed. I can do wish for better environment to work in. People ale so friendly
This is why there is a twilight shift so staff with young children can do some shifts
Compulsory overtime expected every week and Saturday working for office staff.
I have worked for Somerset care for 3 and a half years. The clients i have supported in the majority are lovely and thankful. The management however are so busy with other matters that there conection with the staff falls by the way side. Wages do not reflect skills or experience. But this is in all areas of care. As much as i love my job i feel indervalued and unsupported at times by the majority of the management team.

Set hours on a two weekly rota
