There are varied shifts, but most are 12 hour shifts. Usually there is a 2 week rota - staff will work 3 days then have 4 off and the following week work 4 days have 3 off.
Please note we are happy to look at part time hours too.
New (clueless) member of staff started who bullies other staff, has no idea how to deal with patients and makes the job miserable for all. He does suck up to the boss though & works lots of shifts so gets away with it. Only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole bunch. Toxic staff.
How does someone get hired at Cygnet Health Care? What are the steps along the way?
Once interviewed, and if successful, they are verbally offered the position applied for.
A conditional offer letter and contract is sent within 48hrs.
We then have to complete pre-employment checks, proof of ID, right to work and make sure an Enhanced DBS is completed.
The site administrator will then give the new starter a start date to aim for...
What advice would you give the CEO of Cygnet Health Care about how to improve it?
Non clinical staff are not appreciate in anyway or form you get your annual 1% wage increase a year when everyone around you is getting more, minimum working wage is going up faster than salaryed wage, been with the company a lot of years now and it's still the same old excuses every year you bring it up "it's been looked into" makes you feel so unappreciated, in my line of work your always the last thought when things are been handed out and your the first thought when someone wants something for free, then clinical staff treat non clinical like rubbish especially the nurses and doctors they think non of the rules apply to them.
But it's nice to see the big bosses get there pay rises and bonuses they clearly work harder than the small person in the company.
I go in every day with trepidation hoping I won't get hit or attacked or catch another bug/cold, [no work equals no pay as no sick pay], and I feel that it is like being stuck in a Groundhog Day loop. Work colleagues make it bearable but just when you think you have a great settled team some leave for other job offers at the first opportunity.
