Support Worker in Taunton
on 28 March 2022
Could make improvements for staff work life balance. Management should could be more empathetic towards the experiences of front line workers.
Management roles and responsibilities can be all consuming and distract from the recognition that frontline workers deserve. Working environment varies depending on who is working!
Family Intervention Worker in Somerset
on 27 February 2022
I have never felt such a valued member of a team before!
I have been employed since October 2021, the role is varied, fast paced and sometimes unpredictable - nature of this role! I have never felt so proud to be a part of a wonderful team, everyone is friendly, helpful and genuine. There is some stress to this role, and the staff do really feel it - I believe it’s because they genuinely care and want to do right by the families they work with.Management and senior staff - All highly knowledgable and approachable/friendly. I feel they actually do care! Training and ongoing personal development - the training I had was OUTSTANDING, I was new to this type of work and I found it easy to follow and it was made interesting. There is always training available to book into, personal development is highly supported in this role. After many years in private health care this was the best decision I made!
