Plenty of work, mostly relaxed environment. Good benefits. Nature of the role means you work alone often, other days office is full. Good learning/training. Work load creeps up, but help is there if u ask. Staff nice, but do take advantage when you first start. You have to be assertive and strong.
Lots of instability, uncertainty and anxious feelings, only exasperated by repetitive restructures, serving only cost cutting purpose and overzealous managers, eager to exercise their powers of control.
pension and holidays entitlement
stress, uncertainty and shrinking benefits
I enjoy my direct work with families and feel that when given the time I am able to support positive outcomes with them. However, case loads are high and the ability to significantly improve outcomes for clients is time limited. Timescales for data recording are very short. I am supported to enhance my learning by attending training for Managers but positions at this level and progression within the service is very limited. There has been recent restructure to the services provided by the Local Authority which has caused the workplace culture to go through a period of change.
Flexi work patterns, good employee benefits
Challenging case loads
The salary, benefits and holidays are acceptable but as with many organisation the job satisfaction depends on the quality of the council decision makers and individual manager This was very poor in many cases. Highly paid senior managers had cut salaries and staff numbers resulting in huge backlogs and constant complaints from service users. They then tried to reverse that decision but it was too late. They didn't seem to be accountable for their mistakes. Very high turnover of staff due to these poor decisions by highly paid senior management putting huge pressure on more juniopr team leaders and staff
Some very poor senior management with little concern for staff
The Reablement team are the most dedicated and passionate individuals that I have ever worked alongside, if you are looking for a career in empowering adults in your local community within their homes, then apply to a support worker today. Flexible hours and days, excellent benefits, enhanced pay rates at weekends, supervision and free training.
A typical day involves an early start, arriving at the office at 7am to begin planning my day. Management is relaxed which can be both good and bad. Co workers are friendly and relaxed atmosphere in office. Hardest part of job is pressure of work and being a one person team and not receiving any support from colleagues. I enjoy the relaxed environment and believe people respond well to this type of environment.
long hours, lack of support, poor salary progression
