Care Worker (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 9 April 2018
I have worked for Clarriots in the leeds branch for a year now, and I've felt very welcome since day 1. Every day is totally different and I enjoy meeting the variety of Clients we care for. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone within the company.
Care assistant (Current Employee) – Northwich, Cheshire – 12 April 2018
Working for clarriots was one of the best things I've done. They supported me throughout my pregnancy and nothing was too much for them. I was supported to achieve my NVQ. Alison Kaye my manager at the time was a great support and was there to talk to about little and big. The clients were great and the teams of carers were like families. Definitely a company I'd recommend working for.
Friendly, competent, informative, good rates of pay
Carer (Current Employee) – York, North Yorkshire – 10 April 2018
Ive have been working for this company for 2 months now, i changed career and it was the best thing i did. The support i have received and still getting on a daily basis is outstanding. Knowing they want the best from us carers and the clients makes it an outstanding company. It can be a lonely day being on your own, but the reassurance that someone is only at the end of the phone for support if needed, gives you extra confidence, I am based at York and cant recommend them enough.
Area Manager (Current Employee) – York, North Yorkshire – 9 April 2018
I came to work for Clarriots last year. They have a very personal touch and genuinely care for their staff and clients. I like the fact that they want to provide good, quality care and listen to what their clients want. We do use a lot of new technology, which does get some getting used to compared to other companies I have worked for but this also works in to an advantage too. The head office will listen to your ideas and will act on them if they believe it will work for the company,
Care Worker/Support Worker (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 9 April 2018
I currently work for Clarriots Care Leeds branch, I enjoy working for the company, everyone has their own opinions of the company, good or bad, this does depend on whether or not some staff who have left, have got on with team members.
Introduction of perk box, travel time increase as of April
I have been lucky enough to work my way up the ranks at Clarriots Care. Initially I started as a home carer and was promoted to become a care coordinator and soon worked my way up to become a Registered Manager for the service. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Clarriots Care. This is one of the only companies that I have worked for where the opinions of Care workers are taken into consideration.
Great employment package. Thoughts and ideas of the team considered.
Home Carer (Current Employee) – Horncastle, Lincolnshire – 6 April 2018
I have worked for Clarriots Care out within the community for a number of months. No two days are the same and i find this job extremely rewarding. The service users that I have worked with are all lovely.
Good employment package. Friendly office team. On-call service if i need assistance.
Traffic and other conditions can cause delays in getting to clients.
Left a permanent position to stay with Clarriots Care
Support worker (Current Employee) – Coventry – 8 March 2018
I currently work for the Coventry branch and at the time of starting in May 2016 when the branch first opened I had a permanent position in a secondary school. I recently left my job at the school to pursue a career with Clarriots Care. I very much enjoy working with like-minded individuals, who strive to provide the best care for our clients, and appreciate being recognised for any good work I do. Work is now more flexible than when I was working in the school and my employers and supervisor are understanding and supportive when I need them.
Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – Coventry, West Midlands – 7 March 2018
Clarriots is an absolutely great place to work. I now have a perfect work/ home life balance than I have ever had before! With the bonus that I now have paid mileage for any calls or visits to clients I undertake! I Have worked for local authority care providers before and Clarriots is by far the best company to work for! There is a close team relationship between the office and care staff and everybody is willing to work. Handling on call is a breeze as carers pull together when the odds are down to ensure all clients receive care and build relationships second to none. The manager at Coventry ensures staff are treated fairly. She has a passion to develop each and every individual within their role. I believe this is an important aspect of the job as it builds not only a positive working environment but also fosters great relationships. There is a real scope for growth at Clarriots Coventry, we are encouraged to enroll on distance learning courses and staff to work towards their NVQ's in care, No two days are ever the same at Clarriots Coventry.
Care Assistant for the Elderly (Former Employee) – Leeds And Bradford – 28 February 2018
This company is a joke. They will have you work all hours and take no consideration for your well being. They are sneaky with with calls, ensuring your rota has been made specifically so you do the absolute most mileage for the least pay. Eg : you don’t get paid for your first and last call, so them two calls will be 40 miles away from where you live but all the calls between them will all be with in a 10 mile radius of each other. They have absolutely no conduct of care often bribing you with extra money to cover shifts when off sick. Often bribing you with “bonus’” that 9/10 times when it came to pay day they had forgotten about it. The new manager has absolutely ruined the place with her lack of care and empathy towards not only staff but also service users, motivated by only money and not providing the best service of care. Honestly a really stressful company to work for wouldn’t recommend to anyone unless you’re going for a management role.
Mobile Carer (Former Employee) – York, North Yorkshire – 29 January 2018
The company is pretty bad to work for. The management are complete amateurs and it really is not run very well. If your going to work for any home care provider then try somewhere else. Been working for them six months still didn't get money they owe me for millage, travel time and holiday. Had to check all my calculation every month cos if I didn't they underpaid me and I was few hundreds short. No training offered whatsoever. They expected me to drive 120 miles daily for free !! Constantly breaching contract and verbal agreements.
Care Worker (Former Employee) – Leeds – 11 January 2018
start work 30 miles+ away from your home at 630,travel 100miles+ per day ,finish late ,expect calls from management changing your rota ,adding extra calls in without discussing with you ,shocking pay ,management would do anything to ensure they didn't have to go out on care ,rude office staff.
Carer (Current Employee) – Ripon, North Yorkshire – 14 December 2017
Started out great, suddenly started to get worse without any real reason. Co-ordinators don't pay any attention to your availability, be prepared to get treated like a murderer for simply calling in sick, don't think you'll get peace on your day off, be prepared to be late all the time due to not enough travel, you'll be promised qualifications but it's a lie.
Want to work in Leeds? Tough, go work in Middleborough and further. And you won't get paid to travel there either. 40 miles and over 60 mins travelling coming out of your own pocket.
Think you'll be paid well for all this? Nope. Not when they're dropping the wages.
Head Office Team (Current Employee) – Louth, Lincolnshire – 8 November 2017
I have never worked for a company that has treated its employees so well, I enjoy going to work, my colleagues are amazing and the atmosphere is so warm and friendly. Management has been nothing but fair and supportive which I think is becoming harder to find. The company feels like it’s going places which is exciting and motivating because it really feels like we are all in this together and our efforts are always appreciated.
Great team atmosphere, supportive management, exciting place to work and a fantastic company.
Home Carer (Current Employee) – Louth, Lincolnshire – 27 September 2017
I'm a fairly new employee of Clarriots and I'm really enjoying my job. I had no experience in care but the induction training was really good. The management team have been really supportive and are approachable and friendly.
