Healthcare Assistant in Crawley
Good place to work
I really enjoyed my time in the partnership, it was a energetic team and a friendly environment that was beneficial to anyone’s mental health. The first place I felt part of a team and even the management would stop you to say hello. It is a really lovely place to work, but on the down side, the management aren’t the most experienced per say and can be cliquey. They can occasionally stitch you up in a situation if you are working with the wrong staff

Dreadful management. No Support
Very little support with risky patientsMixed messages from management There is no support for the wellbeing of staffYou are expected to do a lot of extra training outside of work which takes up evenings Paid hardly anything for the sheer workload you are expected to do. On a questionnaire across country, scored 1.2/5 for feeling valuedNo support with patients who are abusive to you. No social aspect between colleagues. Don't pick which evenings you work. Everyone is paid the lowest wage in the band bracketNO CAREER PROGRESSION
Supportive working environment
Currently working on a short term contract but my experience has been excellent. The team are very supportive, especially as the role is primarily home based. This has been especially helpful in creating a strong work/ life balance with flexible use of my time, I have found this transition smooth and reduced stress around managing childcare. The culture here supports the development of staff in their roles and a focus on their overall wellbeing. Peers and those in a management position are all very approachable, I feel that I have developed valuable new transferable skills and I would highly recommend working with this team. An enjoyable aspect of the job is the open dialogue of skills advancement and opportunity to support in further ways.
Community mental health nurse in Cavendish house Hastings
I’m really happy with my new role & how supportive the workplace has been within Sussex Partnership Trust. I was hesitant about moving to the community & lone working but have been pleasantly surprised. The team is very supportive, offer lots experience & advise. There is plenty of time to meet as a team to discuss any concerns. Everyone is really friendly & there is a great sense of community spirit.
I meet lots of people from other areas and although I’ve worked in many versions of this Trust as it’s developed I’ve never been tempted by others
There’s always been a fantastic approach to work life balance with longer shifts, school friendly (not quite term time) hours, long days etc being agreed. Staff regularly say that their support for each other and love for their teams is the best. The work is tough, the staff are dedicated but martyrdom is not applauded either. It’s a large Trust so communication is not always easy but check out the leaders nationally. And it’s a beautiful place to live with cheap house prices (East Sussex) for the south. Interviews can be long with a range of activities as they want great staff but are also values based.
