Good strong reliable company
Team Leader for Bristol Services (Current Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol21 February 2018
Great company to work for, now paying carers for their travel time rather than just face to face. Fantastic induction with an ethical ethos towards care.

Carer (Former Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol19 November 2017
working for brunelcare was the worst years of my life.
the staff were ok but the management were awful
The ABC centre and Woodland court were the worst for neglecting staff needs.
I would not recommend Brunelcare but try one if the other care agencys
For example: St monicas trust
Prestige
or many more.

The home is nice, management is not
Housekeeper/Carer (Current Employee) –  Glastonbury30 June 2017
They are a good company to work for, but sadly I've only been there 5yrs and we have had 4 managers who each time want to put changes in place and not always for the best, the home itself is lovely and so is my team, but management is not good so a lot of staff are leaving reluctantly 😔
Pros
No uniform needed, just black trousers and nice top
Cons
Don't always get your breaks

Care for customers AND staff
Carer (Current Employee) –  Bridgwater, Somerset24 May 2017
Have worked for Brunel for 15 months after working for 25 years in a totally different environment. And love the change of career. The whole ethos of the company is kind and caring and the induction training is brilliant with a mixture of classroom based learning and practical experience shadowing experienced staff. Lots of ongoing training and support. Good support from team leaders and managers. Also like the fact I am now paid for my full shift not just the time I spend with customers. Brunelcare care a lot about the people who work for them as well as the customers.
Pros
Shift pay so paid contracted hours not just face to face time
Cons
Some Late nights but that's just part of the job

One of the best!
domacilliary carer (Former Employee) –  Bridgwater18 September 2015
Having worked for the company for 5 years, I can honestly say its one of the best out there. Having worked for other companies.
Brilliant up to date training. Some flexibility and great team members.
It has unsociable hours, but that's part of the job. And the wear and tear on your vehicle is up to you! Great mileage allowance compared with other companies. Paid meetings too. They pay for your NVQ2, and even give you a reward for doing it. Free uniform and induction - which they pay you to attend. Along with mileage.
Free insurance cover should you die whilst employed with them.
28 days paid holidays - double pay on bank holidays and Christmas/new year.
Tend to have a little trouble covering holidays and sickness, and only 2 carers allowed holidays in any one week, one at the weekend.
Book your holidays early or you wont get them!
I found on occasion, bad communication between office & carers. Example: not being informed of cancelled calls.
Pros
Fab company to work for
Cons
Bad communication between office & Carers, unsociable working hours.
