Senior Support Worker in Kent
on 20 August 2020
Nepotistic ceiling
If you’re lucky to become a senior it’s next to impossible to get any more advancement out of this company unfortunately. A lot of management don’t understand the meaning or importance of collaboration. If you’re not family or a close mate they probably will make an example out of you if you dare make any mistakes. It’s unfortunate that it is a very cliquey place to work. Management aside, this job is soo rewarding and fun. It’s always going to be a special time in my life

Great place to work
I have worked for the NAS for just under 3 years and have been very happy at my work. There are times when the work can be challenging but no more than in any other Social Care organisation I know. The training is brilliant and the team try there best to support and look after you particularly when you are new. Every day is different!

Awful place to work.
I worked for the NAS for over three years. Pay is awful for what you actually do, behaviours were very challenging, incidents occurred multiple times a day to the point we had a password system with the local taxi company to take us to A&E.Management forget about you and are not supportive. We went through around 4 registered managers when I worked there. Our team leaders were fab and did their best, but they were unsupported themselves. Training was almost useless other than the makaton and epilepsy. Shifts worked out well for me as I did a rolling rota, but this is because I did night shifts.

Draining
I’ve worked there for 9 years and we went through 5 registered managers which ain’t good. You hardly get any support and the area manager and deputy manager like to let people think they go round the services when they don’t I can count on one hand how many times I seen them in the years I was there. There’s no progression so if you don’t want to work your way up the ladder that’s fine but if you do I would look elsewhere. When I started I thought it was a family run business because so many people were related lol
Senior Support Worker in Newport

Fulfilling and Rewarding Workplace with lots to offer.
I have worked with the NAS for 4 years, in that time I have advanced by accepting opportunities and key roles offered by management. The management at my place of work is VERY supportive and understanding of the needs of the team, moving mountains in order to help if they can. The NAS has been pro-active to the challenges brought by Covid19 and have worked tirelessly to keep the people we support safe.The work itself is never boring with good links with the community (safely adapted during the pandemic), there is always lots to do and lots to learn. The NAS training is excellent and with the reflective practice you always feel like you are learning in a holistic way. The values here keep us at a higher standard than other places I have worked creating a good and healthy place to work.The hardest part of the job is dealing with challenging behaviour but this is covered extensively in training and new staff will have time to adjust and learn how to cope with this before being asked to support in these situationsI would recommend an NAS job to anyone.
