Great company
worker (Current Employee) –  Torquay, Devon1 December 2019
In every care job you face challenges such as long hours, poor work life balance and challenging situations and that’s something unfortunately comes alongside the job! Why we still do it? is because we love the job! And working for this company makes those challenges a whole lot easier! The southwest management team go above and beyond to help their staff. I can’t recommend working for these guys enough! You want to develop in care? They will help you! You want to gain confidence and help others? These guys will help you!

Growing company, flexible working
Senior Recruitment Co-ordinator (Current Employee) –  Ystrad Mynach4 November 2019
I took the role as a step down from a demanding Management role. I can honestly say that they have been brilliant. Flexible working, I work from home some days and office the others. The company merged recently and have plans to grow. I am only on a temporary contract but would still recommend them!

Don’t do it to yourself
Support Worker (Current Employee) –  South West18 October 2019
To be honest they completely sugarcoat this job and make it sound amazing ,,, NO... the Hours are long, any form of a social life goes out the window and it is horrific on your mental health as the houses are so negative and there is absolutely no support as well there are workers that abuse individuals and you don’t feel like you can say anything, no whistle blowing number either shown .There is no recognition for everything that you achieve in but Do something wrong and it’s like it gets used against you .Also the management is horrific, nothing ever gets sorted without you feeling like you have to put your job on the line and the amount of stress as well that you shouldn’t have to deal with you have to deal with as well as the job. You cannot trust any of the other staff because if one person says something they will do you no investigation and just get rid of you really. It’s not worth it, it’s not worth the mental
