Happy staff and happy clients
I took this as a temporary job whilst I was in the process of relocating but I really enjoyed my time here. The team are really welcoming and the clients are all lovely. The days can be long, but that is the nature of care. People need care all the time. The main thing I found was that there are actually quite a lot of bad companies out there. My colleagues used to tell me stories about other places they had worked and they would say how happy they were at The Great Care Company. The hardest part of the job for me was when a client would pass away. As a company, they do End of Life care and this can sometimes be quite an emotional challenge. The managers are great at supporting you when a client passes but it is still quite difficult. But, on the other side, the most enjoyable part of the job is meeting lots of people, feeling like you are really making a difference and supporting people in a way that you can only do in care. If they had an office near my new home then I would have stayed with the company without any doubt.
Pros
Paid travel time, good perks, nice people, nice clients
Cons
Can be long days

Not a fair office , avoid (York)
This company has potential to be actually "GREAT" but unfortunately the York office is far from this. Very micro managed and the manager only hires friends to big them selves up. This leads to bad care practice. Training for this job was none existent (2 hours practical at most). Management isn't very approachable, especially when it involves someone close to them. Some staff even favoured before clients when safeguarding issues brought forward by clients. Don't waste your time with this company, promise you everything and you get nothing at all.
Pros
Lovely clients and a small handful of good carers
Cons
Terribly managed. Horrible staff (managers friends)
